It looks like BB OS 6.0 will be around for a while since RIM just announced that they are working on an update to V6.1. This means that will likely see the next batch of BlackBerry devices from RIM rocking this OS 6.1 not a QNX version. I can deal with that BB6 for a while if RIM can add more power to the devices.
- Magnetometer / Digital compass APIs
- Open GL-ES 2.0
- Window API (overlay native app surfaces)
- Event-based geo-fencing location APIs
- Enhancement to barcode API’s for additional formats and custom decoding
- and MUCH MORE
Finally it looks like RIM will be supporting Open GL-ES 2.0 on BlackBerry which should give developer better tools to develop rich content and better gaming applications for this future devices. They did mention that 6.1 developers tools will be available soon and will likely see OS 6.1 in the next two quarters.
