RIM Says 7 New BlackBerries On the Way
Jul 13, 2011, 7:35 AM by Eric M. Zeman
During its recent shareholder meeting, Research In Motion's executives said that the company is on track to release seven new smartphones in what it says will be its biggest product launch ever. RIM originally planned to release the Bold Touch 9900/9930 this summer. The phone's launch was later delayed. RIM co-CEO Mike Lazaridis said at the shareholder meeting that the company delayed the Bold Touch to make sure it was up to market standards. Lazaridis believes the technology planned for the Bold Touch, based on BlackBerry 7, "jumps a generation" compared to previous BlackBerries. RIM didn't provide any information about the other planned handsets, nor did it say when they are expected to hit the market. RIM hasn't introduced a new BlackBerry since 2010.
