Six BlackBerry 10 Phones Expected; Will Have Removable Batteries!

Research In Motion is still going on a media blitz for BlackBerry 10. Speaking to the WSJ, RIM CEO, Thorsten Heins, gave many new details regarding BlackBerry 10 and their strategy to gain carrier support.

RIM will be conducting a five-week roadshow with carriers, where Heins will show ‘beta’ devices of the first two BlackBerry 10 smartphones. “The physical shape and feel of the new phones is finished and the software nearly complete,” Heins said. “We’re near the finishing line.”

Initially, RIM will release two BlackBerry 10 smartphones. The first two will be an all-touch and QWERTY physical keyboard device. By the end of it, RIM intends to have a total of six BlackBerry 10 phones in their lineup—three that are all-touch screen and three with physical keyboards.

Mr. Heins said he expects to have widespread carrier support for the BlackBerry 10 rollout. “The carriers want us to keep that installed base [of BlackBerry users],” he said. Mark Siegel, AT&T spokesman, was on hand to reiterate, “We value our relationship with RIM and look forward to working with them on existing and new products.”

Additionally, Heins noted that RIM has decided to make BlackBerry 10 devices have removable batteries. Citing it was a decision made to appeal to heavy smartphone users who frequently run out of battery time and don’t want to carry chargers around.
