BlackBerry 10 Smartphones Will Ship In February 2013

BlackBerry 10 will immediately ship in February after its launch in January, reveals Canada-based BlackBerry maker Research in Motion (RIM).

On Tuesday, November 13, RIM announced it will launch BlackBerry 10 on January 30 of next year. Three days after, it now divulges to customers that the latest version of its smartphone operating system will arrive shortly after the event.

“We want to do it as quickly as possible,” says Kristian Tear, chief operations officer at RIM, in an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle to confirm the company’s road map for its first quarter release.

“They’ve got to keep the buzz going. They don’t have a new product for the holidays, so this was the right thing to do,” says analyst Steven Li.

In February, RIM will ship two new BlackBerry 10 smartphones: one speculated to have a full touchscreen display, the other with a trademark full QWERTY keyboard.

BlackBerry 10 OS comes with a completely remade user interface to provide one-swipe access to a new universal inbox. It features enhanced enterprise features, a new music streaming service, a redesigned camera app and a new default BlackBerry web browser.
