RIM must change software name
BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion has been forced to change the name of its new operating system from BBX after the company lost a trademark ruling. The name change is the latest in a string of bad news for the Canadian company. RIM said in a statement Wednesday that “BlackBerry 10’’ will be the new brand name for its next generation mobile platform. Analysts say RIM’s future depends on a successful launch of the new platform which RIM dubbed BBX in October.
