This is quite a surprise but according to Kevin over at CB RIM has decided to change the name of the next version of the BlackBerry OS from 6.1 to 7. Some weeks back Ronen mentioned that BlackBerry 7 would be a combination ot the tablet OS and the current BlackBerry OS code named Highlander. The reason is not yet know but we can expect to hear about it next week at BlackBerry World. This makes you wonder what RIM is really planning for BlackBerry OS with QNX and how soon we will see it. Personally I can’t wait to have it on devices, but if you have used a BlackBerry torch and the BlackBerry PlayBook the layout of the app icons feels a lot like BlackBerry 6 except for the way it handles app when they are open.
