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.

The BB10 will be using RIM's own version of QML, and QML is scalable. You don't need those silly tricks when you have a proper toolkit.

Yes, you need to customize to 1x1 or 4/3, but other than that 720 to 768, let QML handle that.

Or alternatively to support their other toolkits, RIM could just add more useful short-cut or information menus to the larger screen.

In any case, I don't see the any reason fuzz over this detail. There is bigger problems for RIM with getting an ecosystem going, and no reason to bring up imaginary problems.
