BlackBerry manufacturer RIM has bet big on the BlackBerry 10 operating system. The company has seen the popularity of its existing smartphones decline significantly as government agencies and individual users leave the BlackBerry platform and adopt Apple smartphones or Android devices. The failure of the BlackBerry 10 operating system would be catastrophic for RIM.
Three of the top wireless carriers in the US have announced that they would be selling BlackBerry 10 smartphones this week. Those three carriers include Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile. The announcements leave Sprint is the only major national carrier that hasn't confirmed it will offer BlackBerry 10 smartphones.
Odds are Sprint will sell BlackBerry 10 devices, the carrier has sold BlackBerry devices in the past. The first BlackBerry 10 smartphones are expected to turn up at an event that will be held on January 30. The wireless carriers may offer the BlackBerry 10 smartphones, but it remains to be seen if consumers will buy the devices.
