RIM to drop BBX name for Blackberry 10 after court case


RIM will apparently drop the BBX name for their smartphone OS after getting a temporary restraining order served by a the United States Federal Court in Albuquerque. So Research In Motion are banned from using the name BBX for their trademark Operating system. The firm that filed for the injunction last month is called BASIS International.

BASIS says they are likely to win this, so RIM, plays safe by moving for the longer name BlackBerry 10 for their next generation mobile platform for their smartphones. So RIM will be using Blackberry 10 at the Asian DevCon on December 7-8 in Singapore, where they are expected to launch the new mobile OS, first handsets running on the Blackberry 10 will be unveiled in 2012.
