Will January's Blackberry 10 save RIM?
Research in Motion (RIM) are hoping to reviving their ailing fortunes with the release of the BlackBerry 10 in the New Year, hoping to stay in touch with Apple and Android.
Of course, these new devices have been delayed for some time in the midst of an awful year for the company which has seen dropouts and now, missing the Christmas rush for new gadgets.
RIM say that they'll release two models, one with a touchscreen and the other with a Qwerty keyboard like the older BlackBerry handsets.
"In building Blackberry 10, we set out to create a truly unique mobile computing experience that constantly adapts to your needs," RIM chief executive Thorsten Heins said. "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."
Blackberry Flow? Apparently, this is a system that allows users to move between apps without returning to the home screen. So basically, it syncs up emails to calendars to a social networks and the like... but is it too little, too late?
