I'm starting to wonder.
No official presence to speak of at CES, despite an end-of-January launch for BB10.
But..... a handset has been spotted at the show "in the wild", presumably in the hands of one of the developers who has one. It allegedly isn't running final code, but it looks pretty nice.
There are multiple reports of both widespread emulation and near-automatic porting for Android apps. The sandbox capability is not new; I have agitated for making that "officially support" for well over a year. A quick-porting capability, however, would be interesting. Allegedly porting IOS (apple) apps is easy too.
Research In Motion’s plans for its new BlackBerry 10 operating system extend well beyond the two handsets the company intends to roll out later this month. RIM’s leadership intends to launch a bevy of handsets in the coming year, targeting a number of price points.
Six handsets this year? Hmmm...... now that is interesting. And with no exclusivity given up by RIMM, which is also being reported, the ability to maneuver looks pretty good too.
I want one of these to play with before passing judgment, but one of the other whispers I'm hearing is literal all-day battery life. I've often spoken of the inherent power management advantage in a tight kernel designed for this sort of us (which QNX is) -- if RIMM has delivered on that capability, oh boy -- this is something none of the other phones in the market right now can do competently.
So exactly what do you have under that Kimono Mr. Heins?
