Preview On Research In Motionâ¿¿s Blackberry 10
Anticipation is high for Research in Motion (RIMM) to release details on its Blackberry 10 device on January 30, 2013. Some of the details for the device are already known, but not everything. From a video leak, ETrade Supply took apart the Blackberry Z10 device:
It was discovered that the Z10 model will have:
- 4.3-inch screen
- microSD card slot
- SIM slot with varying locations
- LTE (reported here)
- QNX OS 10.0.9 (test version)
The hardware specifications will place the new device on par with the competition. In that respect, the most important will be display. The screen size puts RIM’s device in between that of Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone 5 and Nokia’s (NOK) Lumia 920.
