Saskatchewan regional carrier SaskTel is the latest Canadian carrier to inform the masses that “BlackBerry 10 is coming soon” to their network. Unlike Rogers, Bell, TELUS and Virgin, SaskTel has no place to pre-register online, but this is a good indication that the all-touch device will be available on launch day. SaskTel has a dedicated page that highlights several BB10 features such as the BlackBerry Browser, Camera with Time Shift, BlackBerry Hub and the BlackBerry Keyboard.

RIM will officially be unveiling their new BlackBerry 10 OS and two new BlackBerry 10 devices on January 30th. We can expect to see one all-touch (currently going by the code name of the Z10) and one touch/QWERTY (currently going by the code name of the X10).

    • Nothin But RIM

      Before Twosee gets on here. Twosee uses a BlackBerry 9360 on Wind in Calgary so he’s prolly just mad Wind won’t carry it at launch.

      2011 specs?

      so you are saying just because the screen isnt 4.8″ its 2011? thats funny… the S3 came out in 2012 and had the 4.8″ screen.

      that doesnt say much for iPhone 5 or Nokia 920…. since they are both under 4.8″ screens…for sure the iPhone 5 should have been released in 2010-2011.

      your ideas of 2011 specs are construed.

    Really nice to see support for BB10 and RIM on so many carriers. It’s a great strategy and its worked very well for Samsung. Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile have announced their support, and Sprint confirmed so today as well in the States. All major Canadian carriers seem to be pushing it, as well as their sub-brands.

    I was quite pessimistic about BB10, but its really starting to excite more and more people in the tech blogosphere. Every day, I read a new article about people being excited for BB10. The Z10 device looks incredibly promising, with specs that even Android phones are losing to idiocy (removable battery + SD card slot). It’s also not a monster phone, and at 4.2 inches, its like the perfect device size. The OS is blazing fast and intuitive and the apps are on their way at a blazing speed as well.

    The naysayers are getting quite sad and have literally nothing to back up their claims any more.

    Ignore “Just saying”. He is part of the online disinformation campaign being done, likely by Microsoft(ever wonder why the anti-RIM trolls almost always pretend like WP8 is some kind of competitor?). RIM stock goes down, they may be able to be bought and pieced off. That is all this is about, selling off RIM to bigger groups for quick profit. It has gotten to the point of ridiculous. Same tired comments, no matter what tech blog, same tired handles, almost always the same amount of time after an article about RIM gets posted. So bloody obvious.

      @Joe Jim Bob the LAST!!!! :)

  • Nothin But RIM

    All these trolls remind me of that kid in school who was annoying and because they couldn’t figure out how to make friends they focused on being as annoying as possible. Being irritating for irritatings sake. Doesn’t bother me, i’m looking forward to BB10 and trolls will have no effect on that decision.

  • EuroPolska

    JUST SAYING, makes no sense. How is it 2011 specs, he just says things to stir the pot. It has 2011 specs, but a higher res screen than an iPhone5… right….

    • I know the lore of Trolls

      Trolls never make sense. Sense isn’t used when jumping out from under the bridge, while trying to capture and eat the Billy goats.

  • Sgt.Romanov

    RIP RIM , only if the price is $700 and any other phone priced this high

    • Nothin But RIM

      FYI, Rogers alone got more pre orders then their whole initial BB10 order. They’ve since had to order another shipment to try and keep up with demand. That’s a pretty good sign.

    Apple isn’t cutting anymore and Windows 8 is like lacking features, like how can you forget the most basic feature? The one when you close your phone, WiFi will just turn off. Like wtf? So cmon rim!

    • Paul

      Will still be on **
