RIM’s upcoming Blackberry 10 is expected to usher in a new era for the company, and hopefully produce devices and a platform that will prove to be competitive against Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android. While that remains to be seen, if you were considering Blackberry 10 devices as your next smartphone, you might be interested to learn that in an interview with eWEEK, RIM’s CEO Thorsten Heins was quoted as saying that there is nothing in Blackberry 7 that will be in Blackberry 10, essentially promising users a brand new operating system.
While the leap from Blackberry OS 6 to OS 7 might be considered to be major, its core remained the same which might have put some users off, but it looks like we can rest assured that Blackberry 10 will be completely new. However he states that “the DNA is still there so the experience will still feel intuitive to longtime BlackBerry users.” We have yet to get our hands on a Blackberry 10 device so we’re not sure what he means by that, but we’re certainly looking forward to seeing what RIM’s latest offering will, well, offer!
