Canadian-based telecommunications manufacturer then-known as Research In Motion (RIM) recently came out with a new Blackberry device under the leadership of their new CEO John Chen in attempt to get back…
Blackberry has been on a downward spiral fall after a not-so impressive sales of the Z10, Q10, Q5 and the Z30. They even went as far as firing their so-called “Global Creative Director” Alicia Keys.

First is the rumored Blackberry Ontario, with a couple of impressive specs detailed on a leaked benchmark. The phone is said to be sporting a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 quad core processor with 2 GB of RAM, running on Blackberry OS 10.3.
It’s the same yet quite different. In fact, it’s RIM’s new creation. BlackBerry 10 was launched yesterday as RIM’s fresh platform creation first made available on its two latest smartphones—BlackBerry Z10, which is all-touch and LTE-ready handset, and BlackBerry Q10, which flaunts a touch display plus they usual physical QWERTY keyboard.
