Blackberry no longer will be called RIM as of February 4, 2013. After the announcement event in the morning of January 30, 2013, Blackberry(RIM) had their Blackberry 10 Fan Event, in my opinion it was a hit. As you can see from the picture above Accu-berry.com very own Edwin Gomez and Will Duran from All Blackberry All The Time posed for pictures at the event. Blackberry sure knows how to throw a party for their beloved long time fans. I personally have been with Blackberry since the Blackberry 8700g which came out in 2004. In the Fan Event we got hands on with the Blackberry z10 and Blackberry OS 10. Within the crowd of RIM employees some were roaming the floor showing off there beloved Blackberry Q10. Will Duran and Edwin Gomez had a great time mingled amoung some of the best Blackberry Bloggers and best smartphone fans ever.
In the first major announcement at the global launch from the stage in New York city, Thorsten Heins reveals that Research in Motion is no more.
From this point forward – we are BlackBerry. One Brand. One Promise
This move makes a lot of sense as BlackBerry has always been the iconic brand for RIM. We have also heard from CNN Fortune that RIMM will soon begin trading as BBRY on the NASDAQ.
Check out what BlackBerry CMO has to say about the rebranding.
Just two days before the big BlackBerry 10 launch event around the world, the BlackBerry Z10 has made another appearance on camera. This time things are a bit special as it’s the white variant stealing the show. We haven’t seen or heard too much on this model aside from a few renders and a peek at Verizons BB10 site, but it’s been rumored all along that both a white and black model would be available.
I don’t know about you, but I’m really digging the white on the Z10. I’ve never been into white phones before (that’s Kevin’s thing) but since this one bears a striking resemblance to a Stormtrooper, I think I might be going that way this time around. I don’t have any issues with the standard black version, I just think classing it up in white might be the way to go this time.
14 days before the official BlackBerry 10 launch with no specific concrete specs on the device, here we have some leaked documents showing what the BlackBerry L-Series is all about. These documents are claimed to have come from a RIM training. Specs are as followed:
Display is showing a 1280 x 780 pixel resolution, with the display size coming in at 4.2 inches and a memory (RAM) at 16 GB for application storage.
The information says these specs are subject to change, so could alter slightly before final release, so stay tuned for when BlackBerry 10 will be officially unveiled on January 30 when we expect RIM to also reveal the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry X10 handsets.
For those who don’t know, HTML5 is the latest version of HTML, the language that acts as the digital skeleton of most web pages. Probably the coolest thing about HTML5 is that it does more than just power web pages — it also powers web apps. These apps can work both online and offline to provide an experience much like a native app, meaning mobile browsers will have to be equipped to handle HTML5 quickly and smoothly.
This is where the BlackBerry 10 browser fits in nicely. The BlackBerry 10 browser itself is an HTML5 application, working as a gateway that serves up pages written in nearly any programming language, including HTML5. But that’s only half of the story. The BlackBerry 10 browser is also an extremely revved-up result of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet browser (which may just have the best HTML5 score for a tablet browser in the industry). This is the browser available in new BlackBerry 10 smartphones. This allows for not only compatibility of pages designed now and in the future, but also a faster browsing experience.
