Exclusive: RIM to Announce First BlackBerry 10 Device in August – Release by October

Research In Motion is gearing up to release its first BlackBerry 10 device. So far, we’ve seen a few leaked photos of BlackBerry 10 and even a prototype photo of the ‘BlackBerry London’ pop up. But when will a BlackBerry 10 device release? RIM’s CEO, Thorsten Heins, has stated we’ll see a BlackBerry 10 device by “later half of 2012″.

One of our sources has revealed to us that RIM intends to announce the first BlackBerry 10 device by mid-August. The first BlackBerry 10 device will be touch only and we’re told has a projected market release for first half of October. As expected, RIM plans to pump a lot of marketing dollars into BlackBerry 10. The early release shows this as the first BlackBerry 10 device will release slightly after the back-to-school and just before the Holiday markets.

We’re also told the first BlackBerry 10 device with physical QWERTY keyboard is planned for an expected Q1 2013 release. Although, we’re unsure if this will be the BlackBerry 10 slider we’ve been hearing about. Nonetheless, we’re excited to hear that the first BlackBerry 10 device is pegged for an earlier than thought release! How do you feel about the first BlackBerry 10 device being touch-only?
