RIM Becomes BlackBerry As BlackBerry 10 Launches

Yesterday was a big day for RIM. The company officially changed its name the BlackBerry, which honestly makes much more sense than RIM. That name change took effect immediately and the company also launched BlackBerry 10. BlackBerry has everything riding on its new operating system and major carriers around the world plan to offer smartphones using the new operating system.

The two new smartphones that will be the first run the BlackBerry 10 operating system include the BlackBerry Z10 and the BlackBerry Q10. Both of the smartphones are very similar featuring 1.5 GHz dual core processors, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. Both the devices also have a memory card slot for storage expansion.

Both the new smartphones also feature micro HDMI outputs and integrated NFC sensors. There will be versions of both smartphones available on multiple carriers supporting 4G LTE and HSPA+ networks. The phones will be available in white or black colors with prices around $149.99 with a new two-year contract for the Z10. The Q10 will launch in April with pricing announced closer to launch.
