BlackBerry 10 launches today, makes iOS the oldest major operating system in mobile
BlackBerry is holding their BlackBerry 10 launch event today -- technically several events around the world -- and CrackBerry is live in both New York City and Toronto, and they'll be bringing you back everything you need to know. (Basically whether this'll be Rocky 3 for RIM... or Rocky 5.)
Most interesting to us, when BlackBerry 10 launches, it'll make iOS the oldest major operating system in mobile. Back in 2007 iOS was the newest, of course, and a massive leap beyond the old, instantly outdated Symbian, BBOS, PalmOS, and Windows Mobile operating systems of the time.
Then Google began to pivot Android into what eventually launched with the G1. Palm ditched PalmOS for webOS. Microsoft put down Windows Mobile in favor of Windows Phone 7. And now even RIM has replaced BBOS with BlackBerry 10.
Whether it works for everyone or not isn't the point. Whether it's ultimate successful in the market doesn't matter. Either way, triumph of tragedy, it'll bring new ideas to the table.
We're still months away from iOS 7, and hopefully Apple wowing us all over again.
But today is RIM's shot.
Keep it locked on CrackBerry for full BlackBerry 10 live event coverage and more throughout the day.
