Earlier today we reminded you about the Super App webcast RIM was holding for developers. Our friend @kfow35 was on the webcast and sent me a couple pictures that caught his eye. The picture shows a BlackBerry Storm with a screen like I have never seen before. I seriously doubt RIM would let a picture of a yet to be announced OS leak on one of their own webcasts, so let’s play devils advocate. What if RIM’s new OS, OS 6.0 or whatever it will end up being called, looks like this? It appears there are “cards” along the bottom that update in the background, which are linked to social applications. I concede that there is not a lot to go off of here I just want to open a discussion on your thoughts about this screen and if RIM was to come out with something similar to this as an OS how it would fair.
The full slide from the webcast is below to show the context it was shown in. I take it as they are showing a Super App that would incorporate as much as possible from the native BlackBerry OS, just giving it a different look and feel. So let’s hear it.. have some fun with this guys.
