It was only a while back when BlackBerries were the phones to have. Remember when you or your friends couldn't tear away from its instant messenger? Well, in a short period of time, smartphones started to dominate the market. Also, it didn't help when the company experienced a lengthy three day blackout leaving its frustrated users without mobile internet access. Due to these events, BlackBerry's Research In Motion suffered a great loss this year.
However, rumours on RIM's comeback with new BlackBerry models and tablets have surfaced. New information about a touch-screen phone, a keyboard phone and new tablets have been leaked. Both the new keyboard phone, BlackBerry Nevada, and RIM's first touch-screen phone, BlackBerry London, will support the anticipated operating system 10. Also, the PlayBook will be upgraded to a 4G network.
Furthermore, a new tablet, dubbed Blackforest, may even offer a larger storage capacity of up to128 GB. It will also have a 10-inch screen, three inches larger than the current PlayBook's screen. Hopefully these new products can help bring this Canadian company back into business.
