A recently leaked RIM roadmap reveals all the upcoming BlackBerries for 2012. Unfortunately there is nothing really interesting scheduled before November this year.
RIM is preparing two new mid-range Curves for the spring seaso and for Q1 and Q2 release respectively. White Bold 9790 and Curve 9380 will hit the market in March or April as well.
BlackBerry London is a name of the Upcoming Blackberry Next-Generation smartphone, Now we have an image of this upcoming smartphone based on RIM new BlackBerry 10 platform.
The image shows the device in black, and looks like a slide from a presentation. The front of the device looks similar to the last picture we saw of the phone but has some differences. It is completely black, but that could just be an alternate shade. What more important is that the beveled edges are missing, replaced by rounded corners and the large BlackBerry logo on the bottom is now a bit smaller and directly below the display.
Washington Post is reporting that RIM the first BlackBerry 10 device to launch will be touchscreen-only. The full hardware QWERTY keyboard as such devices will still come later on.
Android and iOS devices is taking over blackberry, the solid typing experience on the hardware QWERTYs is one of the main reasons people still buy a BlackBerry as BlackBerry is one of the few options for people who hate typing on virtual keyboards, losing this feature means losing More customers and More Market share.
We Hope RIM has a plane!

An Italian BlackBerry site is displaying some pictures of the BlackBerry 10 OS. As for the AT&T apps on the screen, they came on the BlackBerry PlayBook beta as well. The only questionable app on the screen would be the Skype app which could be the Android app icon.
RIM CEO Thorsten Heins has already let loose the news that the BlackBerry 10 devices will have a removable battery. A video shows that the cell is an 1800mAh capacity battery and will be used on the first two BB10 models which are currently code named BlackBerry London and BlackBerry Liverpool.
RIM's last chance, the BlackBerry 10 which is scheduled to launch on January 30th on a special event from RIM. Some news arrived to day that RIM is planning to seed pre-release BB10 devices to enterprise and government "customers" for beta testing.
Also we are getting more high-quality screenshots of the BlackBerry 10 UI, including the homescreen, notifications, BlackBerry Hub, and various apps that will be available at launch.
As you can see a Siri like voice assistance system is already pre-installed on the BB10 and ready to use, Facebook has its App on the BB10 too pre-installed and ready to use.
