Blackberry Q10 and Blackberry Z10 are now official. For the moment, little is known about exact release or pricing details, however.
In order to better focus on the importance of the Blackberry brand to the company, RIM is now officially changing its name to Blackberry.
About one week ago, RIM launched its latest attempt to gather apps with the Last Chance Android Port-a-Thon event. The suspected last in a series of events promising developers $100 for every approved app submitted by developers, 20 max.
While Blackberry 10's launch is just around the corner, there are still those that say RIM has little chance of recovery if they keep down the same path. This is why many of those naysayers believe that RIM should consider selling its hardware business.
Recently Samsung has been gearing up to move into the business world in a big way. The company has mentioned in the past that it sees strong potential in the BYOD model, and believes that its products could be perfect in these situations.
Recently RIM held a Blackberry 10 app port-a-thon weekend, promising $100 per approved app, a chance to win a Blackberry 10 Dev Alpha device and free Playbooks. Since then, the competition has come and gone and there were a staggering 15,000 Blackberry 10 apps submitted for approval.
Now we have yet another leak, this time showing off the Blackberry Z10 handset in black and white color variations.
While Blackberry's B10 event isn't until later this month, but that doesn't stop RIM from talking about the future of Blackberry 10 at CES this week. Specifically, the conversation turned to hardware in a recent interview conducted by Fierce Wireless. Yah, we know: there's the BlackBerry Z10 and the Blackberry X10.
This week, RIM has applied for and received an interesting new patent. With the recent picture leaks of the BlackBerry 10, RIM has created technology that would make the blurry inconspicuous photo a thing of the past.
While RIM devices have a premium and “business-like” design to them, when it comes to modern features and operating systems, the Blackberry line has certainly fallen behind. It looks like Blackberry 10 is set to change the game, however.
Recently we've reported on the hardware for the Blackberry L-Series, and we've even shown off detailed screen-shots of the new Blackberry 10 OS. RIM's latest OS and hardware certainly seems to be shaping up as something worthy of interest, but it all boils down to carrier support.
Blackberry 10 is just around the corner and with it comes a whole new era for RIM. Whether or not the changes that come with BB10 will be enough remains unseen, but one thing is for sure: in today's age you need apps to succeed.
We've already seen quite a few high quality images of the Blackberry 10-based L-Series handset. What about the actual interface itself? Now a new leak shows off screenshots detailing the new Blackberry 10 OS.
Blackberry 10 is coming, with the first new device expected shortly after RIM's early 2013 Blackberry 10 launch event. There are said to be two devices, one will have a full touchscreen and the other will stick to a more traditional physical keyboard approach.
Early next year, RIM will officially launch BB10 and help catapult Blackberry devices into a fresh and new future. There has been quite a bit of hype and positive talk surrounding the upcoming release, and RIM's stock prices have went up recently as a direct result.
We're looking forward to the 2013 launch of Blackberry 10, which is expected to come January 30th if all goes according to plan. Devices sporting the new OS will be expected to follow just weeks after. So what will BB10 have that will keep RIM in the game?
The final version of the RIM Blackberry 10 software development kit is almost ready, with RIM planning to release the “gold' version into the hands of developers on the 11th of December.
With RIM gearing up for their big January 30th release event for Blackberry 10, RIM CEO Thorsten Heins talked a little about the importance of apps with BB10, and what kind of direction that company planned on taking.
With most of RIM's efforts going towards finally getting Blackberry 10 up and running, older versions of Blackberry tend to be left out when it comes to exciting new features and additions. With that in mind, RIM is throwing a pretty cool feature out for currently Blackberry users. The newest version of BBM 7 will feature Wi-Fi voice chat through a new “BBM Voice” option.
Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 is here, and is actually doing reasonably well during its first few days on the market. That said, there is some very real competition in the mobile market that would love to fight Microsoft for the “3rd place” position in the smartphone market, this includes Mozilla with Firefox OS and RIM with BB10.
RIM fans are dropping off rather quickly, jumping ship to other platforms like Windows Phone, Android and iOS. The company's big hope is that the upcoming Blackberry 10 OS takes off and is the salvation they are waiting for. With that in mind, we now have an official launch date-- January 30th.
We don't know what the future will hold for RIM, but at least we now have a few leaked photo of the L-Series that can give us a glimpse of what to expect starting in early 2013.
According to a report from Verge, there are two new phones coming in the first quarter of 2013- both of which will (finally) run Blackberry 10. One of the models has a classic Blackberry keyboard design, the other is a long, full-touchscreen device that has a much more modernized look. It is worth noting that the Blackberry classic-styled phone still does feature a touchscreen, but has a look and feel that is in similar fashion to the Bold line.
With its delay of its new B10 OS, tons of rumors about possible acquisitions and other drama falling down on RIM at a regular basis, they just can't seem to catch a break. Luckily, a California Judge has finally given them that big break, overturning a recent ruling on a patent infringement case against RIM.
In an exclusive interview with the Telegraph, RIM's CEO, Thorsten Heins, confesses that the company doesn't have the the ability to compete with larger manufacturers that crank out handsets and most look at ways to get more budget smartphones out into the market. One of the ways they are now considering doing this is through the licensing of BB10.
Let's face it, RIM isn't exactly everyone's favorite brand anymore and the first time around the company found little success with its Playbook tablet. Now, more than a year later than originally announced, RIM has brought us the 4G LTE-enabled Blackberry Playbook Tablet.
BlackBerry isn't exactly the biggest name in the smartphone world these days, but Blackberry 10, the newest version of the OS, is hoping to change all of that. While I can't say for sure how much luck it will have, there is at least one upcoming feature that truly is quite interesting and worth getting excited about for BlackBerry fans, and that's screen sharing.
Did you buy a BlackBerry 7 smartphone with the hope that you'd be able to upgrade to BlackBerry 10 when the new OS became available? Well, Research in Motion has effectively dashed that dream to pieces.
This is it. This just might be the last major attempt for Research in Motion to become relevant and competitive in the smartphone market. The first BlackBerry 10 device will reportedly be unveiled around the middle of August, followed by a launch some time in the first half of October.
Research In Motion (RIM) filed a patent for a technology back in November 2007 and it was granted to them today after 5 long years. The technology allows for the smartphone to automatically adjust earpiece volume based on the “estimated degree of seal of an ear about a speaker port”. That’s really convenient, but is it really safe?
Porsche met Blackberry back in October with their P'9981 concept, an interesting looking device that is essentially just a standard Blackberry that has been beautified with Porsche styling. For many, you will find that there is little reason to own this model, either because of price, or just because you can get a better phone for even less.
We recently showed off the Blackberry London, an allegedly new phone from Blackberry that features a full-screen, the upcoming BBX OS, and no traditional...
The photo shows the phone running some variation of the PlayBook’s OS, though the coloring and icons are somewhat different. According to the source the photo was of a ‘dummy’ model and so the OS in the screen is likely just a static image.
I guess one way around that is to create yet another operating system and that's exactly what the Waterloo crew have decided to do, today announcing the next-generation BBX OS for BlackBerry smartphone and tablet devices.
While they are quickly working to fix the situation, RIM founder Mike Lazaridis has come forward with a public apology for the whole situation, saying sorry by way of online video.
We’ve all heard about how the RIM BlackBerry PlayBook was a rushed product, sending what was almost a beta build into the marketplace. Now, it looks like Research in Motion is about to do the exact same thing with another QNX-based device: the upcoming BlackBerry Colt.
An obvious trend that has emerged in the last few years is that people like smartphones with giant touchscreens and they're getting less interested in having physical keyboards. While e-mail remains at the heart of the BlackBerry business, RIM recognizes that touchscreens are the present and the future. And that's why the upcoming QNX-powered Colt superphone will be all touchscreen.
RIM is in trouble, we all know that.Yet their stock is rising this month. How could this be? Maybe RIM is positioning itself to be up for purchase, not unlike Motorola. Apple, Samsung, and Microsoft are all possible candidates for that acquisition. Even if that doesn't happen, a "strategic partnership" could form, not unlike the deal between Microsoft and Nokia. If Microsoft plays nice, it could have heavy interest in both Waterloo and Finland.
