RIM CEO Thorsten Heins has the company running on all cylinders
For those who can't speak German, the video mentions a laundry list of specs such as the 4.2 inch HD screen and the dual-core 1.5GHz processor under the hood. 2GB of RAM (!) is on board with 16GB of native storage aboard. The device weighs in at 4.4 ounces (125 grams). The video showed a responsive machine which it must be as this is RIM's last chance to keep the BlackBerry name relevant. We shudder to think what would happen if this turns out to be another BlackBerry Storm type launch. So far, though, the Z10 looks like a sleek, head-turning device and we have to say that the current management team led by CEO Thorsten Heins has the company running on all cylinders.
The other video below was captured directly off the television screen, but the quality is not that bad. As any investor worth his salt knows, this is cable channel CNBC and what we are seeing is an ad for BlackBerry 10 which apparently is one of CNBC's sponsors for coverage of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. By the way, if you look at the stock prices on the bottom of the television screen, you'll see Apple on its way to closing under $500.
So we have a detailed look at the BlackBerry Z10 (albeit in German), pre-orders, and now an ad. All that is left is the launch of the actual phone.
