QNX will replace blackberry OS , says Mike Lazaridis

RIM’s co-ceo Mike Lazaridis, amidst all the blabber during the D:Dive into mobile event, left people squandering for comprehending what he said.

Apparently, he meant that the blackberry OS which runs on all the smartphones from RIM right now, will eventually be replaced by the QNX OS which runs in the playbook. There is a big question ,when ? According to the outspoken co-ceo, its the time when dual core processors arrive in the mainstream. As you may have known, the playbook runs on a dual core platform and runs the QNX OS, but smartphones are yet to be equipped with dual core processors.Sure, the orion core from Samsung is supposed to arrive soon on the rumored Galaxy S2, fingers crossed.Now you just have to wait for it to happen .

After acquiring TAT, RIM got a place in my heart .Things are looking bright for RIM and 2011 here we come !

Samsung says NO to Super Amoled in the russian Nexus S

In soviet russia, lcd sees you. while s-amoled’s don’t. Bah, nuff humor. Anyhow. ….

SCLCD vs S-AMOLED

The news is that our sammie boy has decided to go with a Super clear LCD version of the Nexus S in russia and may soon follow suit in other countries too.While the default super amoled will still be used in majority, it is still unclear why russia alone gets super clear LCD first. Obviously, the move is due to shortage of Super amoled supply ,but still ? why Russia alone first ?

They have also pointed the launch to February 2011 for this Android flagship.

While some say Super clear LCD is technologically advanced and even better than Super Amoled. It is hard to comprehend for Sammie’s S-amoled fans, who might buy a galaxy S instead.

But you might slightly judge with the picture above.
