Research In Motion today indicated during its quarterly earnings press call that its next-generation BlackBerry 10 smartphones will not appear until "the latter part of calendar 2012." RIM had previously suggested that they'd reach the market in the first half of 2012, so the delay is a significant one. RIM said the reason for the delay is that it is waiting for the availability of certain dual-core processors, which won't reach mass production until mid-2012. RIM is currently transitioning its BlackBerries from BB6/7 to BB10, which will merge features of the current BlackBerry smartphone software and that of the PlayBook's QNX platform. RIM reported earnings of $265 million, a 71% drop over the year-ago quarter. RIM sold 14.1 million BlackBerries. In response, RIM's co-CEOs, Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis said that they would reduce their salaries to $1 per year.

A hope for BB 10 device

The hope is that a new BB 10 device would be an actual, and true NEW blackberry device. Hopefully they release one taht does not closely resemble another BB device, and hopefully they release a powerhouse phone. The Bold 9900 is a great phone but it is by no means a powerhouse, and just becasue a phone has brushed aluminum or sell on it an a carbon fibre back, does NOT mean it is a great device.

Hopefully we can get a dual core BB with at least 1.5 Ghz of processing power per core.
That is COMPLETE overkill for a BB.....
What's RIM? Forget releasing ten device how about just one that's not a POS! Another hole in the ship.
