BlackBerry Q5 is the company's latest, and most affordable device based on its BlackBerry 10 platform, unveiled today at an event in Orlando. It covers the non-enterprise essentials of the platform, while keeping the Q10's DNA, and targeting the youthful masses.
BlackBerry is working on its third line of smartphones based on its BlackBery 10 platform, reportedly named "R-Series." Poised to be a successor to the BlackBerry Curve, models in the line should appeal more to the general consumer, the extremely chatty kind.
Ahead of its general worldwide availability, BlackBerry is giving finishing touches to a new variant of its Q10 keypad+touchscreen handset. It features a rubberized back that enhances grip, the original ships with a matte plastic one with a carbon fiber texture.
If your thumbs long for tactile feedback from a modern smartphone with a real keypad, keep them twitching till May-June. According to an AP report, that's how long it could take for BlackBerry to bring the new Q10 BlackBerry 10-driven handset to reach U.S. buyers.
After countless delays of its new operating system and phones, Blackberry announced that the Z10 won't be arriving in the US until March 2013. This time it's allegedly the Federal Communications Commission and its testing requirements that is to blame.
BlackBerry's day of reckoning is here, as the company launched its BlackBerry 10 mobile platform along with two devices, the first being a touchscreen monolith akin to every other flagship smartphone, the Z10, and one fusing touchscreen with a physical keypad, the Q10.
The first major announcement to come out of the ongoing BlackBerry 10 launch event is Research in Motion (RIM) deciding to rename itself BlackBerry, after its biggest product and service brand. The company is going all-in with its BlackBerry 10 line of products.
RIM's make-or-break BlackBerry 10 launch event may be underway, but that didn't stop retailers from throwing open their inventory to buyers. A Briton went hands-on with a BlackBerry Z10 at a Phones4U outlet. The large touchslab looks quite a handful.
Research In Motion plans to officially launch its new BlackBerry 10 platform on Wednesday along with the BlackBerry handsets. Alot of information on RIM's handsets has already been leaked, but there is a lot more to know which might not be unveiled till the launch.
Last week Lenovo's CFO said that they are looking at all opportunities, RIM and many others. Even though RIM is not doing the best, we will not see this outcome. According to Lenovo, the company's CFO was speaking broadly about M&A strategy in a recent interview.
