November 10, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

As you are aware, RIM, in search of bringing back their past glory, had recently introduced their new platform BBX that will work both with smartphones and tablets.

Developed from a combination of their previous OS and QNX platform, the BBX is a user-friendly platform that will support the developers, gamers and normal users.

The latest is that the company has revealed that the BBX will support the BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES).

The company has confirmed that BlackBerry Colt, the first BBX device will come sporting this feature.

The smartphone will be sporting the same resolution (1024 x 600) and aspect ratio as of the PlayBook.

So you can use the apps and development tools of the PlayBook on the handset too.

It is believed that the Colt will be featuring a large, 16:9 touch screen with no physical keyboard.

It is rumored that the Colt will be slimmer than Bold 9900 and 9930 and is covered by the similar unibody outer stainless steel frame.

And, it carries a 4-inch screen with high pixel density, dual cameras and a battery similar to that of PlayBook.

It is expected that the RIM will launch the Colt in early 2012. It would be a real test for the company to make some space in the market, which is now completely controlled by the iOS and Android devices.

Do you think RIM will strike back with the BBX and the BlackBerry Colt?
