When Research In Motion Chief Executive Officer Thorsten Heins displayed the prototype of the new BlackBerry 10 phone yesterday, It was missing a major part it’s physical keyboard (ironically it was the reason the device is called BlackBerry because of it’s keypad buttons resembles to blackberry seeds)
At the BlackBerry World 2012 summit in Orlando, Florida Thorsten Heins displayed a Device which certainly resembles to Apple’s iPhone or Android Smartphone. This may be the indication that BlackBerry also want to penetrate in Touch screen world .
It’s Definitely Risky Attempt as the Email experience is good but personally I think that getting rid of Physical Keyboard is risky because there is majority of people who hate touch screen phones & find it complicated or not very user friendly.
This Step by RIM might give a Head to Head Competition to Apple’s iPhone or Android Smartphone but since RIM always produced a variety of devices that might just fits into the void that can surely encourages the youths, But looking at the momentum of iPhone and Android, this competition will be a tough for RIM to triumph but certainly worth it.”
