PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless For me, the two most interesting products in the operating system space to look forward to are Windows 8 (due to just how different it is), and BlackBerry OS 10. BlackBerry? Yes, and it's simple to see why. The BlackBerry Playbook, while not the most successful tablet, seems to be loved almost universally by its users, which bodes well for BB OS 10. On top of that, it's based on QNX, which is some major brownie points right there. The company has released information on which resolutions the operating system will support.

i don't understand what is the fuzz about some pixels. Modern frameworks like qt(used by bb10) or android have a layout system that is perfectly able to handle this automatically.

Indeed, I can think of a few "top 10" games and apps that compromise on screen resolution using black bars, be it on Android or iOS, and no one complains or probably even notices. I don't see it as an issue at all, unless the BB10 APIs and such make it more difficult than it should be.
