RIM Sets Blackberry 10 launch date for January 30th
Remember RIM? You know, the maker of the BlackBerry, once so famous it was dubbed CrackBerry? Well, don't count them out just yet. It's made an official announcement regarding the launch of BlackBerry 10 mobile operating system and new smartphone hardware for January 30, 2013.
Last week BlackBerry 10, formally known as QNX real time operating system, received US government certification approval for Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2 FIPS. Despite Research In Motion's strong background in back-end security, it is unknown if that alone will help them make significant headway past Apple's iOS penetration into the enterprise market; not to mention the exponential rate of consumer adoption as well as Google's Android leading market share in smartphones. Clearly, the Canadian smartphone maker has its work cutout for them.
“In building BlackBerry 10, we set out to create a truly unique mobile computing experience that constantly adapts to your needs. Our team has been working tirelessly to bring our customers innovative features combined with a best in class browser, a rich application ecosystem, and cutting-edge multimedia capabilities. All of this will be integrated into a user experience – the BlackBerry Flow – that is unlike any smartphone on the market today. Thanks to our strong partnerships with global carriers and a growing ecosystem of developers, we believe our customers will have the best experience possible with BlackBerry 10. We are looking forward to getting BlackBerry 10 in the hands of our customers around the world.” - Thorsten Heins, President and CEO of Research In Motion.
