RIM talks upcoming BlackBerry 7 smartphones to devs

RIM is now gearing up to launch a host of new BlackBerry 7 smartphones, and to help devs prepare for these upcoming handsets they have now begun to make information on these devices available. There has been a great deal of adoption on the tools that were made available to developers, not only have they been working on new stuff, but also work has progressed on porting existing tools across to BlackBerry 7 OS.

A beta version of a new BlackBerry simulator has now been made available for two of these new phones in the hope of even greater adoption. Not only this, but RIM has now opened BlackBerry App World so that vendors can begun to ask for their new apps to be included once the update goes live.

According to the BlackBerry Developers Blog there are two things that you need to remember ahead of inclusion, the first is for vendors to submit their applications as soon as they can. The second is to make certain that these new apps can support different screen sizes. So far this new move from RIM has been pretty positive, but it’s not until BlackBerry 7 OS is fully released that we will see just how much of a success it will turn out to be.
