From DailyTech: Research in Motion, Ltd. (TSE:RIM) is hoping that despite a year of delays developers will jump onboard its new mobile operating system platform, BlackBerry 10. It's travelling around the world on the BlackBerry Jam World Tour, giving out alpha hardware to prospective developers.
The phonemaker today announced the screen resolution of its product BB10 products, which are currently expected to launch in the first half of next year. According to RIM its iconic keyboard phones will get a 720x720 pixel display, while the flagship "full touch" devices like London will get 1280x720 pixel (HD) (16:9) displays.
The good news is that HD display resolution is identical to that of most flagship Android smartphones like the One X from HTC Corp. (TPE:2498) and the Galaxy S III from Samsung Electronics Comp., Ltd. (KSC:005930).
However, there's still around half a year until the launch of BB10, so one has to wonder whether Android phonemakers won't be using an even higher resolution display by then, in their never-ending quest to push the hardware envelope.
