Will RIM release its new BlackBerry OS next week?

Research In Motion is holding its Wireless Enterprise Symposium and Capital Markets Day in Orlando, Fla., next week, and speculation is mounting that the BlackBerry maker will unveil not only new devices but also a new browser and the latest version of its operating system, 6.0. The company has already hinted major revisions to its software are in the offing; in February RIM said it will launch at some point in the future a WebKit-based browser. Further, screenshots and descriptions of RIM's purported OS 6.0 leaked on the Internet earlier this week. The new OS is rumored to include a much more touchscreen-friendly user interface, alongside a new media player, photo viewer and an inbox that incorporates social networking integration. Article
