RIM announced a while back that their first BlackBerry 10 smartphones would launch in the first quarter of 2013, this means some time between January and March of next year.
We have been hearing for a while that RIM are expected to launch their first BlackBerry 10 devices in January of next year, although according to a recent report, RIM may not launch these new devices until March.
The news come from Jefferies analyst, Peter Misek, who has said that RIM will launch the new BlackBerry 10 devices in March rather than january as had been previously thought.
“We had hoped for a January launch but now see a March launch as more likely […] Also, our checks point to a tough November quarter, with replenishment rates decreasing as channel partners are cautious on holding RIM inventory. We think the business uncertainty means parties are unlikely to acquire or license from RIM until BB10 launches.”
As soon as we get some more details on RIM’s new BlackBerry 10 smartphones, including some confirmation on exactly when they will launch we will let you guys know.
