BlackBerry roadmap shows two tablets and BlackBerry 10 smartphone
A BlackBerry roadmap was obtained by N4BB and shows some very important dates for 'Berry fans. Let's cut to the chase. Speculation is circulating that RIM has only one BlackBerry 10 model that it is working on, and whatever that model is will be launched in September according to the roadmap. The first BlackBerry 10 powered SuperPhone is supposed to be called the BlackBerry London or possibly the BlackBerry Surfboard. There is no doubt that the future of RIM and BlackBerry rides on this launch.

Let's back up for a bit. Next month, as expected, Playbook 2.0 will be made available and will include important things that were missing from the OS at launch. In April, RIM is expected to honor the first year anniversary of the BlackBerry PlayBook by releasing a 3G+ (HSPA+?) version of the 7 inch tablet. In December, you can expect to see a 10 inch tablet with LTE 4G connectivity.

Sometime between now and the launch of the 10 inch tablet, RIM will rollout a couple of BlackBerry Curve handsets. One would be aimed at the developing countries in the world and have EDGE connectivity. In April, the Mobile Fusion service management tool will be launched. The tool allows IT administrators to remotely control BlackBerry, iOS and Android devices. A PlayBook administrative service is expected during the Summer.

The roadmap is not considered complete and doesn't include any new BlackBerry 7 devices. With BlackBerry World coming in May, hopefully RIM will have some prototypes to display as time is ticking against the Canadian based manufacturer.

not a lot of activity going on at RIM & not very exciting, Sept. is a long ways, but I hope they will be able to pull this off successfully.
