Google Play store comes to BB10. Here's how...Hands On BlackBerry's comeback with a new operating system, BB10, turned into one of the greatest tech flops of all time. Almost one year after the launch, BlackBerry still sells far more of its ancient BB7 devices than it does BB10 devices. But could you turn BlackBerrys misfortune to your advantage?
It’s not exactly reminiscent of BlackBerry’s 2008 launch of the Storm, but the Z10 still seems to be off to a good start.
BlackBerry today released the BlackBerry Z10 all-touch smartphone in its home land of Canada on Rogers. The launch was attended by BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins, Rogers President and CEO Nadir Mohamed, as well as plenty of loyal BlackBerry customers.
When BlackBerry 10 launched, it did so with a dearth of big-name applications available in its BlackBerry World content portal. Even now some companies (I’m looking at you Netflix) continue to shy away from the platform, but at least one company has changed its tune on the BlackBerry 10.
BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins recently confirmed with CNET that the company would launch a midtier device yet this year and an “exciting” new flagship device could launch around the holidays. “It [the new flagship] takes BlackBerry 10 to another level in terms of the user experience,” he said.
Great! There’s a new BB10 device launching by the end of the year.
As it ramps up to the launch of devices running its next-gen OS in Q1 next year, RIM has announced a new series of BlackBerry developer events focused on its traditional user-base by helping enterprises and other organizations build apps for BlackBerry 10.
