BlackBerry 10 Delayed Until 2013
Research In Motion (RIM) today announced that phones running its next major OS - BlackBerry 10 - are now not expected to hit the market until next year. BlackBerry 10 phones were previously promised by the end of 2012. The announcement came as part of quarterly earnings news for Q1, which included additional bad news for the company. The company's revenues plummeted 33% compared to the previous quarter, leading to a quarterly loss of $518 million. The company is currently undergoing a restructuring that will result in 5,000 jobs shed.

Just give up RIM.
You weren't going to buy one anyway. Why do you care?
So do I just get a Blackberry 7 device and hope that maybe by the time I am eligible for my next upgrade 18 months later, that MAYBE Blackberries will still be around and that Blackberry 10 will be ready....
Or do I just say 'to hell with Blackberry' and pick up a new Windows 8 device when they are released around October?
Right now I'm about 50/50...
-BB10 and the phones that come with it will be introduced much to the dismay of 90% of phone...
With any more delays
(Aw... now I feel bad for laughing.)
What are they doing?!
There's no explanation for this delay....and if is a parts shortage I say it is time to ...
I Feel Bad For RIM
