RIM, the company that owns BlackBerry has been pretty mum on details concerning BlackBerry 10 but a recently leaked roadmap has shined a little light on the dark areas. No official date has been released or announced but by looking at the roadmap we can see what RIM has in mind for upcoming BlackBerry releases and then play the guessing game as to when we should see BlackBerry 10.
We foresee RIM releasing BlackBerry 10 sometime in October or November based off previously stated timeframes for it’s release. This is purely speculation but we imagine that RIM does not want to get overshadowed by the release of the new iPhone which will most likely be making a later sumer/fall debut as well.
Any rumor about the iPhone 5 is enough to send the world into a frenzy, especially when it deals with the release date. A Japanese TV crew recently filmed a plant in China where Apple products are made. Inadvertently a recruiter may have spilled the beans on a possible release date.
“We’re recruiting 18,000 people to make the Apple iPhone 5… That’s because it seems like it will go on sale around June.”
This statement could very well be true as June is the usual release month of Apple’s iPhone products, minus last year when it revealed the iPhone 4S in October.
We are all keeping our fingers crossed as summer rolls closer. Do you think the iPhone will be released this summer? Sound off in the comments after the break.
Reports are surfacing that the new upcoming iPhone will not have a 4+inch screen but will opt to stick with the 3.5 inch screen. This is not set in stone, however, with Apple known for starting trends and not following them, this rumor could very well be true.
Apple without Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs brought Apple back to life but he was known to dislike the use of gigantic screens on phones. With his passing will Tim Cook decide to go down a different avenue?
We know Apple’s retina display can fit on a larger screen as we witnessed with the “new iPad.” So 4+inch’s of retina display should be no bigger. Will Apple decide to join the party? Or will they reject the invite and continue to dance with 3.5 inch screens? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
