It’s official. While we knew that BlackBerry 10 would be launching on 30 January, the UK’s biggest networks and retailers have all announced that they’ll be stocking RIM’s latest BlackBerry handsets running BlackBerry 10. If you’re still waiting on a solid rival to iOS, Android and Windows Phone, your time might have just come.
Phones 4u, The Carphone Warehouse, EE, Three and Vodafone have each stated that they’ll be carrying RIM’s latest and greatest BlackBerry 10 blowers, but details are scarce on actual pricing or even what kind of handset will be launched to the public first. Missing from that list: O2, though that doesn’t mean it won’t join the party at some point.
BlackBerry 10 contains a whole host of updates to the ageing platform that should bring it up to date, including an updated keyboard, a voice commands feature that is similar to Siri as well as a totally overhauled interface. Is it too little, too late for RIM or will BlackBerry 10 be enough to sway away current iPhone and Android users? Let us know what you think in the comments.
