It’s a busy day for RIM (Research in Motion) as they released two new Smartphones and also changed the company name to Blackberry. The new Z10 and Q10 Blackberry’s will operate on the company's next generation operating system, BlackBerry 10.
"From today on, we are BlackBerry everywhere in the world," President and CEO Thorstein Heins said. "One brand, one promise."
The Z10 resembles the smartphones most of us have become accustomed to since the dawn of the iPhone with a large 4.2-inch screen while the Q10 maintains the company's iconic physical keyboard, an addition that will surely appeal to the BlackBerry faithful.
U.S. carriers will announce pre-registration today. Although there are no concrete release dates, the new phones are expected to ship in mid-March. The Z10 is expected to cost $199 with a contract and will be available on Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint.
Singer-songwriter Alicia Keys will be the company's new Global Creative Director. And this weekend, the new BlackBerry will be featured in its first ever Super Bowl ad.
