BlackBerry 10

BlackBerry 10 is an upcoming proprietary mobile operating system, developed by Research In Motion for its BlackBerry line of smartphone and tablet handheld devices.

It is based on QNX which was acquired by RIM in April 2010. RIM has claimed that there is no single line of code from the current BlackBerry legacy OS present in the new QNX based OS.

The platform was originally called BBX but this was changed when RIM was blocked from using the BBX trademark after legal action from BASIS International, who already uses it for their software.
