With its next mobile system BlackBerry 10, Research in Motion intends to get back in the race and multiply number of smartphones with their operating system.
On the occasion of the exhibition of the Consumer Electronics Show taking place in Las Vegas, the Canadian manufacturer RIM announced it will produce at least six new smartphones in 2013. Asked by the magazine FierceWireless.com, Frank Boulben, marketing director of the company, said that they welcome BlackBerry 10.
Currently 150 mobile operators around the world test BlackBerry 10 whose output is officially scheduled for January 30. In December 2012, a poster for marketing a first full touch smartphone called “Z10” was published on the Web. According to several rumors, this model will be followed by the BlackBerry “X10” with a full physical keyboard.
These six phones will be positioned on the entry, mid and upper range to cover all needs. It seems that the manufacturer has more cards to play in 2013. Note however that the CEO Thorsten Heins announced that these phones would still not be traded without subscription. The first device will be announced next month. It only remains us to see if they will convince consumers.
