RIM will be officially launching Blackberry 10 come 30th of January, and the company is hoping to get their phones out to the masses within 30 days of its launch. If that is the case, then reports of manufacturers getting ready for production would only make sense. According to a report from Digitimes, it seems that Taiwanese suppliers such as Silitech Technology, Ichia Technologies and ODM Winstron are gearing up for production of Blackberry 10 devices. These manufacturers are expected to begin a small volume of production in December, and we expect that the volume will only increase as the launch date gets closer.
The report has also suggested that RIM’s manufacturers are a bit cautious when it comes to building up components for Blackberry 10. As some of you might recall, despite the Blackberry Playbook featuring some pretty decent hardware, the tablet did not take off the way RIM had expected, leaving a surplus in their Playbook inventory which ultimately resulted in pretty drastic price cuts. Hopefully Blackberry 10 will be a different story!RELATED
