How are you doing Blackberry? Research in Motion or RIM unveiled the newest version of Blackberry, the Blackberry 10. I mean, the unveiled prototypes of its new hardware and software. At this time, Apple IOS and Google Android powered devices are in the peek of their mobile ruling, leaving RIM BlackBerry far behind. So, with this 10th version, they are hoping for “salvation”. LOL!

“They’re not being stupid; they’re doing everything they can,” said Mike Abramsky, who recently left RBC Capital Markets, where he covered RIM as an analyst for a decade. “But this is about the challenges of being late to the game.”
Since the unveiling only shows PROTOTYPES, they said that it will not 100% reflect ultimate final products for consumers. These prototypes are just made for BlackBerry 10 Apps developers or application programmers.
What’s uncommon with these Blackberry handset are they don’t have its signature physical keyboard. They matched their product to the current mobile trend leaving what they are known for, IMHO. The prototype phones do not have even a single button on their front.
According to The New York Times, “The prototype phones’ 4.2-inch, high-resolution display is much larger than the 3.5-inch display of the current iPhone 4S but smaller than the one on the largest Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy Note, which offers 5.3 inches. It is longer and wider than the iPhone to accommodate the larger display, but the matte black body of the prototype phone has about the same thickness.”
