BlackBerry 10 boot up screen leaked
RIM is still on track to launch BlackBerry 10 in the first quarter of 2013. And everything needs to go smoothly without a repeat of the BlackBerry Storm 9530 launch debacle that saw huge number of Verizon customers buy the device thinking that it would approach the Apple iPhone in quality and functionality. Instead, the OS was half-baked out of the box, the accelerometer was balky and the browser was slow. The device did not support Wi-Fi and the SurePress QWERTY, which was designed to make the user feel that he was typing on real keyboard buttons, was a flop. But that was under the old regime. Thorsten Heins and crew knows that this is RIM's last shot at turning things around and remaining a relevant name in the smartphone world.
