OS 4.6.1 to carry multiplayer gaming platform?

Comments

Sounds awfully ambitious, but there are rumblings that the OS 4.6, which is coming out with the BlackBerry Javelin, will be packing a multiplayer gaming platform. You’d think pros like Magmic might be in on something like this, but we’ve heard nary a peep from our Ottawa neighbours. Bplay already has a separate multiplayer service they work through, so if anything, RIM’s developing something in-house. Cool idea, if nothing else.

OS 4.6.1, launching with the BlackBerry Javelin, will also be sporting some cell-tower recognition to provide some light location service, along with a safe mode to make software testing a little easier. Hey, speaking of the Javelin, we hear there’s still a BlackBerry 8900 out there, which could very well be the Javelin. Jibi also has it that the flip BlackBerry Kickstart has been rebranded as the 8220 and 8210, which both check out for our sources. It looks like the BlackBerry Bold is going to be in a class of its own for awhile…
