RIM Working On Virtual BlackBerry For Symbian OS Devices?

Chalk this one up to the RUMOR category. Josep just caught some interesting information in the device.xml file. (Translated to English) It seems like there is reference to a new (SYM) Symbian virtual platform for BlackBerry.

I know it has been over a year since RIM mentioned the Virtual BlackBerry experience for Windows Mobile and they have still not delivered. Well along with the old Windows Mobile entry in the device.xml there is now an entry for Symbian. You can see it in Josep’s screenshot below:


I wonder if this is again some vaporware or it will actually pan out with a Symbian Client. The whole BlackBerry connect fiasco was a real pain and I would hate to see a repeat. On the other hand I can see some real potential for RIM to spread out to more devices.
