RIM recently announced that they would be delaying the launch of BlackBerry 10 until next year and now we have some more details of what is coming to BBM in BlackBerry 10.
RIM’s CEO Thorsten Heins confirmed at the company’s annual shareholder conference that BBM on BlackBerry 10 will offer support for video chat, as well as a range of other features.
With upgrading it into a new experience, think about adding features on BB10 such as video chat, for example, within BBM. There’s many other features to come with BB10 that will really level this BBM experience, which is good today, right? It’s still the major used social network in Asia Pac, which will upgrade that experience to a whole new social networking experience based on BBM. That’s why we want to build on that strength, and that’s why we don’t want to share that strength. We believe this is something that is very unique to us, that is very strong in our portfolio, and we want to use this to build a BlackBerry-driven social networking platform.
We are expecting to see the first BlackBerry 10 devices early next year, as we recently found out that RIM intends to launch their first handset, the BlackBerry London in quarter one of 2013.
