Blackberry roadmap leaked - BB10 devices in early 2013

It’s known that RIM has been in a lot of trouble for quite a while now and despite the company’s CEO rejecting claims that the ‘company is not in a death spiral’ it’s rather well known that they’re losing money at an alarming rate.

To save their bacon RIM are planning ahead and are in the process of designing devices that will hopefully bring them back. According to a leaked product roadmap the company will be bringing a new range of products that are set to come with the Blackberry 10 OS.

According to the roadmap, RIM will launch two devices in the first quarter – the Blackberry London, a touch screen device which will lack the commonplace QWERTY-keypad and the Blackberry Nevada, a traditional QWERTY-keypad device. 

Despite the company admitting they have faced technical issues with the implementation of certain features in the OS, it’s expected the Blackberry London will be revealed first and will be available in Europe somewhere near the first week of January whilst North American customers will have to wait another month when it arrives in the first week of February.

Along with the two devices, RIM are looking at launching a 10-inch tablet, again sporting the Blackberry 10 OS except this piece of kit is expected to come with 128GB of storage, or at least its codename ‘Blackforest128’ would suggest so.

The future of RIM still remains uncertain but if the company manages to pull a comeback with its new devices, it will be welcomed by a large portion of us – after all, the more competition and innovation in the field the better, right?

Lol lol. Good luck with that. They'd have to give everything away for a year to save themselves. Are they really foolish enough to think users are going to board a sinking ship?

heres hoping the new models are better built than pretty much all blackberries in the last 2-3years, theyve all been cheap flimsy and overall a bit pooh tbvh.
This is from a B.E.S Admin and longtime supporter workwise and personally for the last decade. the latest curves and bolds are a joke build wise and battery longevitywise. Im now a Galaxy Note /Android user and tbh RIM have a LOT of catching up to do!

Blackberry would be a nice manufacturer for android and WP7/8 OSes. They can implement their UI and functionality over android.

maybe a dual boot phone with bb10 and android?

I would totally be down for that...the lack of proper good apps for my 9900 is shocking

too late. no one will give a second thought on this phone cuz of apple and samsung are dominating the smartphones.

This is a totally unfair stereotype but it must be said. The guy in that picture, looks so BORRING!!; Why would I want to buy his phone?
