RIM originally promised to be released BlackBerry 10 in late 2012, but RIM postponed until early 2013. These delays make room for the Android and iPhone dominate the market.

BlackBerry 10 will bring RIM's mobile software and phones into closer competition with Apple and Google. The company has said BlackBerry 10 would run on a smaller number of devices with must-have smartphone features, including a much-improved camera, a modern Web browser and social networking integration. The software will allow customers to access e-mail with one swipe from any app, and it will automatically shift between personal and corporate modes that allow users to securely switch between them. Note, smartphones running the BlackBerry operating system OS 7 or lower can not be upgraded to BlackBerry 10. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | TRIBUN JABAR 18112012]
