We told you last month that the first wave of upcoming BBX phones would have the same pixel density as the BlackBerry PlayBook. Now we have more confirmation of that fact from PC Mag which interviewed Alec Saunders of RIM this week. Alec confirmed that the first BBX phones would have the same screen resolution and pixel density as the PlayBook. Namely 16:9 ratio and 1024×600 resolution which is an unusual resolution for a phone. On the other hand this will make it much easier for apps to immediately work on the BBX phones.
On the other hand Alec also mentioned that BBX also has the ability to upload multiple dimension graphics which hopefully means it can support different resolutions and aspect ratios. Alec also confirmed that the BBX phones would have all the features of the PlayBook at launch including the addition of BES support and native email.
We also got a chance to sit down with Alec this week so we will have more for you later!
