You think you know what a record is, but do you really?
With a new name, new operating system, new handsets and new server, Research in Motion, I mean BlackBerry, is hoping that the future's so bright, it's gotta wear shades.
Research in Motion launched on Wednesday its long-awaited BlackBerry 10 operating system and handsets, after releasing its BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 server last week.
Enterprises still have until the end of February to get a free BlackBerry 10 smartphone and license as part of downloading and installing BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, which became available today--a week ahead of the launch of BlackBerry 10 operating system and handsets.
Research in Motion is offering a free BlackBerry 10 smartphone and a server license trade-up to companies participating in its BlackBerry 10 Ready Program, designed to prepare customers for the launch of the BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES 10) server next year.
A key to the success of BlackBerry 10 will be the availability of consumer and enterprise apps when the smartphone hits the market on Jan. 30.
Research in Motion this week prepped the market for the January launch of its new BlackBerry 10 platform and devices. Along with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server 10, the company is betting BlackBerry 10 will help it regain its position in the enterprise.
IT spending on smart mobile devices--smartphones, tablet and eReaders--will increase 20 percent next year, making up 57 percent of the growth in overall IT spending for the year, according to estimates by research firm IDC.
Smartphone shipments exceeded 157 million in the third quarter, with Samsung widening its lead over rival Apple, according to the latest data from Juniper Research.
Orlando, Fla--Research in Motion's BlackBerry bested Apple iOS 5, Nokia's Symbian S60 and Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 in 10 of 11 threat categories, according to a study by Strategy Analytics.
