We can say that it seems similar to RIM’s 2012 roadmap for latest devices is waiting much more on track by what we before waiting. As said by BGR, RIM has several new devices in the works for 2012/2013 that should remain things flowing up pending the launch of BlackBerry 10 afterward this year. The lineup also takes in two new Curve devices, an HSPA+ PlayBook and two BlackBerry 10 devices.
Here’s how it breaks down:
- Within the next few months, RIM should release two new devices in the Curve line – the BlackBerry Curve 9230 and the BlackBerry Curve 9320. The Curve 9230 is said to be an EDGE device where the Curve 9320 will be HSPA.
- The BlackBerry 10 device dubbed the BlackBerry London is still on par for launch in September, while a new device (BlackBerry Nevada) featuring a touchscreen and full QWERTY keyboard is said to be launching as part of the Bold line at the end of the year as well.
- RIM is said to be working on a new BlackBerry PlayBook that includes a 1.5GHz processor, HSPA+ and NFC for launch mid-2012.
Therefore this all pretty much jives with what we already knew the big variation here from the original roadmap is really just the time frame (which makes sense as we knew BlackBerry 10 was getting pushed back to late 2012). It looks like RIM will attempt to stay the momentum up in up-and-coming markets with the release of the Curve 9230 and 9320 while we wait to see some BlackBerry 10 goodness.
