RIM, the makers of BlackBerry finally gave fans a sneak peak at their upcoming BlackBerry 10 phone which can be seen above. Gone are the smaller screens with a full keyboard and in it’s place is a fully functional touch screen. Here is a quick teaser video of what BlackBerry 10 devices will look like:
While the devices you see in the picture are only developer devices and may never be released in to the public, I have to tip my hat to RIM for finally stepping into this decade. But the true question is, is it too late? Apple and Android have compactly taken over the smartphone game leaving little room for anyone else. While a full revamping is possible, which Microsoft did with their Windows Mobile Phones, we will just have to wait and see how RIM plans satisfy their loyal BlackBerry customers while gaining new ones.
Either way, BlackBerry may have just gotten cool again. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
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.
Let’s put the facts on the table, RIM, the makers of BlackBerry are drowning in their own pool of misery. But from the photos that have been released showing the BlackBerry London and now BlackBerry 10 Operating System(OS), the tide may be turning in RIM’s favor.
Let us know in the comments below what you think of the pics.
Reports have resurfaced with new pictures of the long rumored Blackberry London. From the looks of this device we can acknowledge that RIM, the makers of BlackBerry, are finally looking to join the ever-changing smartphone race. The sleek design of the BlackBerry London has us sweating from excitement in the middle of the coldest winter. When is the BlackBerry London coming to the market? According to a leaked roadmap of RIM’s upcoming devices, the London washing ashore to American soil come Q3.
This device could be the game changer that RIM needs to be back into the hands of smartphone users worldwide, but lets keep our fingers crossed.
