This week, Research In Motion began showing wireless carriers the first two BlackBerry 10 devices. We know those two devices to be the L-Series and N-Series. This is apart of what they’re calling a five-week roadshow.
So far it seems “feedback from wireless carriers has been positive,” said Andrew McLeod, managing director of RIM’s Canadian operations. McLeod said the company will begin to discuss the product launches and other business aspects with the carriers soon.
“We’re in the process of finalizing the software,” McLeod said. “It was at a point where we had a confidence level that we could really demonstrate the validity of the products and software. Obviously you don’t want to show something that is not going to wow folks. People were excited with what they saw.”
However, as RIM’s vice president of developer relations, Alec Saunders, has said, BlackBerry 10 devices are still “months and months” away from shipping. BlackBerry 10 devices are expected to release Q1 of 2013. Which wireless carriers do you think we’ll see launch BlackBerry 10 devices right away?
