As if today's news of finally hitting 100K apps, and an official US launch weren't enough to make any BlackBerry fan all giddy with excitement, news coming from CNet will make your head explode. We're just barely getting our hands on the Z10 here in the US and BlackBerry CEO is already talking about an "exciting" device for the holiday season. Although we still do not have any official or non-official word of what this device may be, it is definitely a good sign that BlackBerry is not planning on going anywhere.
We should expect another three to four handsets running BlackBerry 10 at high middle and low price points before the year is out. Call the Z10 an appetizer, as we may very well see a considerable change in the way BlackBerry 10 behaves. Heins was quoted saying that the mysterious device would "take BlackBerry 10 to another level in terms of the user experience."
Just what that means, we're not quite sure yet, but maybe we will see some of the planned updates at BlackBerry Live or BlackBerry Jam Americas this coming May. We're still anxiously waiting for the Q10 and we should expect it to come sometime between now and June.
What we do know is that as more people get to experience the new generation of BlackBerry devices, the more people are going to be hungry for it.
I can't wait to see what BlackBerry will deliver next, today marks a great start into BlackBerry's next ten productive, fruitful years. And as Thorsten Heins himself put it, "now we're cooking in the kitchen."
