Source was wrong says RIM

Yesterday I mentioned that a source had stepped forward and told BGR that RIM was lying about the delays with BlackBerry 10 and that the company was betting the farm on a sub-par OS not as good as early versions from competitors. RIM is firing back and claims that those rumors are false.

RIM claims that the post on BGR is "inaccurate and uninformed." One of the key claims made by the BGR source was that the delays were due to the lack of a working device. RIM claims that the delays are exactly as it stated, trouble getting the LTE chipsets that are more power efficient. AllThingsD has its own source close to RIM that says the BGR story sounds plausible.

The official RIM diatribe offered to AllThingsD reads, "RIM made a strategic decision to launch BlackBerry 10 devices with a new, LTE-based dual core chip set architecture. As explained on our earnings call, the broad engineering impact of this decision and certain other factors significantly influenced the anticipated timing for the BlackBerry 10 devices. The anonymous claim suggesting otherwise is inaccurate and uninformed. As RIM has previously explained, and as Mike Lazaridis reiterated on the earnings call, we will not launch BlackBerry 10 devices until we know they are ready and we believe this new chip set architecture is required to deliver the world class user experience that our customers will expect. Any suggestion to the contrary is simply false.”
