BlackBerry 10 Powered Devices Will Be Able To Support 3D Display Technology
Canadian manufacturer, Research In Motion has seemingly fallen from the face of the earth after once being quite a formidable challenger to Apple and the iPhone. That being said, the BlackBerry 10 platform has been delayed time and time again, and we’ve given up all hope of seeing it released ahead of the Q1 2013 projection.
Still, the new OS may be worth the wait, as RIM announced recently that BB10 will be able to support high-definition displays at 720p.
RIM’s announcement was targeted at the developer community, but nonetheless provided a lot of insight for everyday consumers. The first BlackBerry 10 device, reiterated the blog post, will come with a 4.3-inch screen with 1280 x 720 HD resolution.
This is the “Dev Alpha device” that the company had been touting for some time, and it appears as if this will be RIM’s first-ever HD touchscreen phone. And that’s not all – the blog added that even those anachronistic BlackBerries with portrait-orientation QWERTY keyboards will come with 720 x 720 HD support.
Now if only Research in Motion could overcome all those financial woes and organizational shuffles. As we mentioned above, BlackBerry 10 is now expected to drop by the first quarter of 2013, and a lot hinges on the operating system’s success.
If it fails despite the HD support, better multitasking and other improvements, the end just may be nigh for the once-mighty smartphone maker.
