Just as we’re starting to wonder if Research In Motion (TSE:RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM) will ever deliver BlackBerry 10, the company finally offers some insight as to why there have been some significant delays.

RIM Offers More 'Insight' As To Why They're Delaying BB10

Just mere days ago, GoMoNews.com got the chance to talk with Thorsten Heins to find out why the Canadian tech company is taking their time. He claimed that he wanted BlackBerry 10 to work right. It’s expected that BB10 will be a completely revamped version of their software.  Thorsten Heins also mentioned that, “Our developer teams are continuing to generate momentum to bring a wealth of applications to BlackBerry 10.”

GoMoNews.com also recently got the chance to talk to some of the PR representatives for some more answers regarding the situation. One thing that was confirmed was BlackBerry’s requirement for BBM (BlackBerry Messenger).  They’ll need to install either BlackBerry Enterprise Server(BES)  or BlackBerry Internet Service(BIS) to get the BBM to work.

The second important question is if there were any BES or BIS clients for the upcoming RIM PlayBook. According to the PR reps, that answer is no. The new devices will run on a specialized operating system based on QNX and BlackBerry 7. Users could use a special technology, called Bridge, to receive text messages and BBM messages as well.

Let’s hope for Thorsten Heins and the future of his company, they can revive Research In Motion Limited (TSE:RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM) and the BlackBerry brand. If their faithful fan-base remains patient and Heins can successfully launch a new product, Research In Motion Limited (TSE:RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM) may see better days. For now, we can only take what Heins says with a grain of hope. I would love for RIM to come out stronger than ever, but time is not on their side. Many former BlackBerry users have lost their patience and moved on to Apple’s Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad and Google-based Android phones.
