RIM CEO Hints At BB10 Coming In January

RIM CEO Thorsten Heins was interviewed by CIO.com and was asked about why BlackBerry 10.  As you may know, BlackBerry 10 is now scheduled to arrive in Q1 or 2013.  The reason for the delay was because software developers have been putting a large amount of code in the platform.  This “has proven to be more time consuming than anticipated.”

 In the interview, Al Sacco of CIO asked Heins “But how long do they [users] have to wait for RIM to prove it is still in the game? Will BlackBerry 10 solve all of RIM’s problems?”

Heins responded candidly by saying “I’m not happy with the situation at RIM either. Who can be happy and satisfied with where we are? What I am satisfied with is that I know we have a path to the future with BlackBerry 10, because I see it. In January with the full touch device and the QWERTY coming, I think we will reinstall faith in RIM. That’s what we’re working on… I have faith in the future. My team is working relentlessly to create that future.”
