Canadian phone maker Research In Motion (RIM) is gearing up to introduce six new Blackberry 10 handsets to market, according to tech.uk.msn.com. Wireless carriers are currently being shown the new handsets, which are due to hit the market next year. Technology site pocket-lint.com has claimed to have seen two of the new devices and says they will include an all-touchscreen device and a Qwerty smartphone. Blackberry, who was one of the pioneers of business mobile phones, became popular with teens for its ‘BBM Messenger’, however, latest figures reveal users are now converting to more advanced Apple iPhones and Android handsets. Andrew McLeod, managing director of RIM’s Canadian operations said that the company had received positive feedback so far from the new handsets, saying people we ‘excited by what they saw’. McLeod said: “We’re in the process of finalising the software. It was at a point where we had a confidence level that we could really demonstrate the validity of the products and software. Obviously you don’t want to show something that is not going to wow folks.” The new Blackberry handsets, which will use the new Blackberry 10 operating system, were supposed to be released in June, however this was described by RIM’s chief executive Thorsen Veins as ‘unrealistic’.
