First BlackBerry 10 model to launch February 28th?8
February 28th launch for the first of the new BlackBerry 10 devices. The document reveals a $799.99 price for a version of an unknown BlackBerry 10 model for Canadian carrier Bell. Since RIM is based in Canada after all, it wouldn't be surprising to see carriers in that country get a few days head start on the release of what is most likely RIM's last chance to keep the BlackBerry name relevant in the majority of smartphone markets where the company has lost its way. In the U.S., for example, many corporations and government agencies have dropped BlackBerry to go with the Apple iPhone or Android flavored models. Some, like the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) have backed away from a switch to the iPhone to give BlackBerry 10 a chance to be tested out.
