RIM is set to unload and unleash their new BlackBerry 10 OS and the two new BlackBerry 10 devices on January 30th, 2013. This is now 39 short days away. Rumours surfaced a couple days ago that the all-touch BlackBerry 10 device might go to market with the name of “BlackBerry Z10.” This possible new naming strategy is a shift away from the previous numbered devices, such as the 9900 and 9100, and sets the stage for a new direction. This of course is unconfirmed by RIM, but has a nice ring to it.
Little is known about the actual all-touch device, only that it will be powered by RIM’s new “mobile computing platform” BlackBerry 10. The screen resolution has been confirmed to be 1280 x 768, have LTE connectivity and that it’ll come with an HD camera.
Various hi-res pics and a video surfaced online that might give a greater insight into what we can expect the Z10 to look like. CrackBerry has done a fine job at dissecting all the rumours and have created a list of potential specs: 1.5GHz dual-core processor LTE, 4.2-inch display (1280×768) with a 356ppi, 8MP camera that shoots 1080p HD videos and a 2MP front-facing camera, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, HDMI and a 1800mAh removable battery.
RIM’s CMO went on record and stated that there will be over 70,000 apps available at launch. Overall, if true, the Z10 sounds like a solid device. Still no word on the price points. How much would you pay for the new BlackBerry Z10?
