Leaked BlackBerry 10 screenshot shows Voice Control; RIM's shares soar 10%

Leaked BlackBerry 10 screenshot shows Voice Control; RIM's shares soar 10%
A leaked screen shot of the BlackBerry 10 OS reveals Voice Control options that RIM has put on the new OS to compete with its challengers. Based on the screenshot, BlackBerry 10 users will be able to ask the device to make a phone call, send a message, book an appointment, send a BBM message or search the internet. Earlier Monday, another BlackBerry 10 screenshot revealed the Google Talk and Twitter apps on the new OS.

Meanwhile, not all mobile related stocks have been hit by the bears on Monday. Yeah, as we explained earlier, old news is taking shares of Apple down over 3.3%, but the stock of Research In Motion (you know, RIM!) is up 9.14% or $1.24 to $14.80. Earlier in the day, the stock showed a nifty 10% gain as it took out some resistance at $15. The combination of Apple cutting orders for parts needed to build its iconic smartphone and the upcoming January 30th introduction of BlackBerry 10 is prompting the buying of  RIM's shares. As recently as September 25th, RIM's stock had traded as low as $6.75.

Back in June-July of 2008, RIM traded at $140 before the stock cratered amid the success of the Apple iPhone and then Android. Last quarter, one million subscribers left BlackBerry, the first time the company reported such a decline during a quarterly report. RIM's problems stemmed from its two top executives who felt that the touchscreen Apple iPhone was a fad and it wasn't until the poorly executed launch of the BlackBerry Storm 9530 that a touchscreen model was launched from RIM's camp.

Mught be time to invest in some RIM stock! Never been a fan, but I've also never had anything against them it just isn't for me. I wish them the best of luck and hopefully BB10 puts them back towards the top.

They seem to be pulling out all the stops. I am excited. If BB10 turns out to be good, I might be looking into doing some kind of trade or sale on my S3 to get it.

Myself, I'm glad to see old BB hanging on and giving it for all she's worth. I may rock one, full screen that is. I hear there's around six models coming out in short order so a good chance I may. Hoping its near bulletproof/secure as most expect.

nice job RIM! hope to see you back on top!! i just know you can do it with BB10 but ofcourse good marketing is still needed! dont price the BB10 device with ridiculous price! do the attempt of nokia gaining back its shares in US market with lumia 900 and now 920! offer the first phone with cheap pricetag! and im pretty sure you'll win back your shares!
