It looks like now that all the hard work of transitioning the core features we've come to love from our BlackBerry Smartphones to the new underlying QNX OS it will be a lot easier for RIM to churn out handsets for the masses. Frank Boulben, said in an interview at this years CES trade show that RIM is planning on adding four more devices to it's portfolio after the initial launch of the first two in just three more short weeks, namely the BlackBerry Z10 and a yet-to-be-officially named QWERTY model on January 30's launch event.
We have yet to hear more specifics as to what these devices will look like, but we know for sure that RIM is targeting a wider range of consumers in the higher mid and lower pricing ranges. We also know that currently RIM does not have any exclusive agreements with any one carrier and will be able to go after different market segments with its new platform and devices.
This makes me wonder whether RIM will continue with the Curve family of devices, which for the longest time have been very popular due to their accessibility and feature sets for the lower end of devices. As for the higher end, the rumored Aristo device is set to be a beast of a device if the specs we saw late last year turn out to be true. Will you wait to see the remaining four devices from RIM before you hop on the BlackBerry 10 train?
