Hi guys, this is Tech Doll and I’m here today to give you some dope on the new Blackberry 10 OS.
Research In Motion, the company in charge for construction BlackBerry phones will soon give software developers prototype devices that run an early version of the BlackBerry 10 platform. RIM is hosting a BlackBerry 10 event in Orlando in May which will coincide with its annual BlackBerry World user conference. There, a limited number of developers will have the chance to cooperate around with the product. The company has already encouraged developers to grab one of the 2,000 developer spots in order to let developers push the sales of the diminishing BB podium and bring in some modernisms to an otherwise boring phone system. Giving prototypes to developers so far in advance of its consumer release, then, is a way to make sure that developers and customers remember that there's a device on its way from the company.
Although RIM said the prototype, labeled "BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha," is not going to be the completed smartphone projected for consumers, the revamped BlackBerry line is expected to launch in late 2012.
The smartphone maker is facing stiff competition from competing platforms like Apple's iOS and Google's Android. RIM is expected to release its latest quarterly earnings on Thursday, and that data will be indicating how it's fared against those rivals over the past three months.
Although everyone does think that BB might be a dying OS, this might bring in a glimmer of hope and might thump in new life into what looks like a candle in the wind right now.
Competitive pressures from not only Apple but what Google is doing with Android, and the recent moves with Microsoft by Nokia, all of those competitive issues are putting pressure on them to get their spec up, and early designs up in hopes they can still get some attention.
While the prototypes might generate some buzz for BlackBerry 10, especially among developers, I worry RIM has already lost crucial parts of some of it’s originally core markets, including the corporate market.
So its finger crossed for the new blackberry 10 o.s ….hope it doesn’t show a decline therein…
