The long wait is finally over. RIM has finally launched its next generation software, Blackberry 10, as well as new handsets the Z10 and X10. In addition Blackberry World, RIM’s app store, gets movies and music.
RIM renamed the Blackberry App World to just Blackberry World to symbolise that the online shop offers more than just apps. It will soon offer games, movies, music, TV shows, and more. Currently, you can’t purchase movies or TV shows from the app offering. However, these will be available soon since RIM has closed deals with record labels and film studios such as Warner Music Group, Sony, Disney, and 20th Century Fox. Once these are ready, movies will be available at the same time as their DVD release, while TV shows will be available as soon as they are aired.
RIM has officially announced two new handsets. One is the Blackberry Z10, which is a 4G-enabled smartphone sporting a touchscreen. The other is the X10, which sports a QWERTY keyboard Blackberry fans will be familiar with.
EE and Vodafone will be offering the Z10 powered by Blackberry 10.
Excited to get your hands on either the Z10 or X10 powered by Blackberry 10, or are you more interested in the iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S3? Share your thoughts through a comment on our Facebook page.
RIM (Research In Motion) is scheduled to launch its much awaited Blackberry 10 (BB10) software towards the end of January. Alongside its next generation software will be new two phones. The Blackberry X10, a phone from the company’s new N-Series, has been leaked in the internet courtesy of N4BB.
The L-Series will consist of new Blackberry devices sporting touchscreens. The N-Series will consist of new Blackberry devices sporting QWERTY keyboards, just like older models such as the Bold Touch 9900.
Unfortunately, only photos of the handset sporting familiar features were shown and not what lies under the hood.
RIM will be launching its Blackberry 10 software alongside the two new handsets running the software on the 30th of January. It’s no secret that the Canadian phone maker is in trouble. It’s hoping BB10 will help get it back in the game. Sadly, many think that it’s too late for the ailing RIM. However, despite the odds, RIM seems optimistic. RIM’s CEO, Thorsten Hiens, claims that Blackberry devices will replace the laptop in the next few years.
We honestly hope RIM can get its mojo back with the launching of Blackberry 10. However, it does face quite a challenge especially with the ever-growing success of Android handsets such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the highly popular iPhone.
Would you be interested in getting your hands on the Blackberry X10, or would you rather get your hands on what the competition has to offer.
Announced on Sony Ericsson’s official blog, the Android Gingerbread update is now starting to roll out to their legacy handset the XPERIA X10.
Unlocked X10s will be the first to get the update next week. It will available by downloading the update to your PC. Software bundled with the smartphone will allow you to install the update to the X10. This is what we thought.
Apparently, someone at Sony Ericsson made a mistake. The update is, unfortunately, still unavailable for the X10.
Head of Product PR for SE, Mattias Holm, wrote, “As some of you have seen we have communicated on www.sonyericsson.com that the Gingerbread software update for XPERIA X10 is available. Unfortunately that information was a bit too premature. The launch is imminent and timing according to plan but we just need some more days before we can push the button.”
Okay. So they need more time. It’s better than not getting the update at all. However, there is bad news. There will be a few XPERIA X10s on specific network operators that will not be getting the update. Sony Ericsson is yet to announce who gets the update and who does not.
Although you might have been disappointed by news, all you have to do is wait for just a few more days for the Gingerbread update to roll out. After all, it was previously announced that the Éclair version Android would be the last iteration of Android to roll out to the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10.
