BlackBerry Q10

The BlackBerry Q10 is the first BlackBerry 10 device to feature a physical keyboard. It’s packed with the same great features you’ve become familiar with in BlackBerry 10, but provides an unmatched physical typing experience for customers who just need to have that keyboard. See how it works in the full blog post and video.

BBM Video Chat with Screenshare

BlackBerry Messenger, or BBM, has been taken to the next level with BBM Video Chat and screen sharing capabilities. This is going to open up some new possibilities for collaborating and communicating with your friends and colleagues.

    I loved what I saw at the @BlackBerry Launch Event. I was having some wishful thoughts about hearing about a #PlayBook update.

    Congrats to RIM (erm, Blackberry) on pulling off a much anticipated launch of their new BB10 line.
    A few minor technical glitches in the online presentation, and a somewhat stiff attempt at warmth and enthusiasm for the momentous occasion didn’t take anything away from this enormous occasion.

    What did distract from a clear vision of the future though (IMO) is this:

    People say that RIM is nothign without BlackBerry…
    Will that reasoning also apply if “BlackBerry” (inc.) becomes more than a smartphone manufacturer….Extending itself into a larger ecosystem for communications, networked devices, and proffessional/enterprise services…as I beleive is the blue-sky projection?

    How does the term “BlackBerry” suitably represent the varied business and research activities of say…QNX?
