'BlackBerry 10' is the next OS from RIM due to their loses BBX trademark battle

At BlackBerry DevCon, RIM was announced that the next generation platform for BlackBerry devices would be BBX. But today in BlackBerry DevCon Asia, that has all changed once again. Now, RIM will be calling their next generation platform "BlackBerry 10".

It's not all that surprising considering BBX product lines is in use by BASIS International Ltd. since 1985. Therefore, US Federal Court has blocked RIM from using the BBX trademark, favoring the existing use by BASIS for its software.
