After United States Federal Court in Albuquerque granted a Temporary Restraining order to prevent Research in Motion (RIM) from using the BBX as the name for its future mobile OS, RIM has finally decided to change the name to Blackberry 10. The announcement came from a Tweet by the BlackBerryDev.
RIM was barred from using BBX-announced last October- as their mobile OS name because it was already a registered trademark under BASIS International. RIM refused to budge despite requests from BASIS to change the name and opted to settle things in court. The decision came out a day before RIM’s Asian DevCon Conference on December 7-8, 2011 at Singapore.
