rightasrain saidRIM is doomed. BB OS 10 is delayed until late 2012. The market won't wait.
I am short RIM.
that article is old.. they already said they are showing off the new phones and OS at Mobile World Congress next month.
Yeah, it's old... four weeks old. use Google... you know, that search engine?... and ask any question about the delay in BB OS 10 and the fate of RIM. you'll get plenty of good, solid data from analysts who make a living following this stuff... not the opinion of iOS and Android fans on this site. What you'll find is not good for BB fans.
RIM can show new phones and the new OS all they want. That doesn't mean they're anywhere near ready for production and sale. The Mobile World Congress presentation is just show and tell so that they can keep a bit of mindshare. Ultimately, it won't be enough.
All I can find is the phones will be out in Q3 of 2011.. not the END of 2012.
If the above image is to be trusted, what you spy with your little eye may be the very first BlackBerry smartphone to sport RIM's QNX-based operating system, known more recently as BBX. With bold angular lines that smack heavily of the P'9981, this touchscreen slab (code-named "London") is said to be thinner than the iPhone 4 and will dutifully stand tall when placed on its side. Before you get too excited, however, keep in mind that the above image could very well be a concept, prototype -- or, even a masterful forgery. For what it's worth, The Verge was informed that this model is merely a dummy unit, although the actual device is alleged to contain a 1.5GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage. An 8-megapixel rear camera is also said to be in the mix, along with a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter and a June 2012 release date. Sure, it's easy to be excited about Waterloo's forthcoming wares, but sadly we're forced to take this one with a heapin' spoonful of skepticism. So, who's hoping Mr. London becomes a reality?
