Research In Motion Limited (NASDAQ:RIMM) (TSE:RIM) recently shared their first teaser shot of the Blackberry 10 device, which is poised to launch in stores early next year.
The page for the Blackberry 10 shows a device that looks like a slab phone with a textured back. It appears to be a part of the L-series that’s been leaked throughout the year.
Research In Motion Limited (NASDAQ:RIMM) (TSE:RIM) will officially unveil the product on January 30th, 2013. It’s predicted that they will unveil the L series phone and another phone model with a keyboard.
The official Blackberry website gives us a small preview as to what we can expect from this device. BB10 will feature the Blackberry Hub, where users can access a wide variety of entertainment, like music, apps, games, social media, and more. The official page also claims to share more details regarding the new product in the near future. Those who are interested in this device can subscribe to updates and read some of the news reports regarding the progress of Blackberry 10.
On the surface, Blackberry 10 sounds like a promising product. Unfortunately, most tech consumers have lost their interest in the Research In Motion brand. The company has had many chances in the past to turn their business model around and since they failed to do so, it’s a pretty safe bet to say that Blackberry 10 is dead before it even starts.
It doesn’t help that Research In Motion Limited (NASDAQ:RIMM) (TSE:RIM) chose a mundane photo as their first teaser picture. As Chris Velazco from TechCrunch reports, “the teaser photo doesn’t show off much more than the device’s rear end.”
With all that said, it’s still possible that the Canadian tech giant may surprise us. They may show us what we’ve been waiting for all along and their next product may receive a good response from consumers. It would be interesting to see Research In Motion Limited (NASDAQ:RIMM) (TSE:RIM) prove everyone wrong.
