RIM announces standardized screen resolutions for Blackberry 10 devices

Research In Motion (RIM) has revealed plans to standardize the resolution of its Blackberry 10 devices. Not only will the move make app creation an easier task for developers, but it also confirms that all Blackberry 10 devices will feature high definition displays.

The current range of Blackberry smartphones suffer from a serious fragmentation issue. The Bold, Curve and Torch lines have a series of resolutions, ranging from 320 x 240 up to 640 x 480. This makes the task of developing for the platform problematic, as it's difficult to create applications that are able to fit the variety of different resolutions and form factors.
