The President and CEO of Research In Motion,  Thorsten Heins, has confirmed that the company have passed a critical milestone in the development of its brand new mobile computing platform, BlackBerry 10.

"In the last week, BlackBerry 10 achieved Lab Entry with more than 50 carriers – a key step in our preparedness for the launch of BlackBerry 10 in the first quarter of 2013. We made this commitment during our recent results conference call and we have delivered. This process will continue in the coming months as more carriers around the world formally evaluate the devices and our brand new software".

"I have spent the last several weeks on the road visiting with carrier partners around the world to show them the BlackBerry 10 platform and to share with them our plans for launch. Their response has been tremendous. They are excited about the prospect of launching BlackBerry 10 in their markets. Our respective teams are now engaged on the technical and commercial preparation of the launch of BlackBerry 10 and the lab entry is an important milestone in that context", Thorston said in a release by the firm.


  1. Blackberry really improving their market share. I bet Nigerians will surely go for this BB10

  2. Can BB over meet up with the competition staged by Apple and Samsung... I think it will take them a long least 10 to 20 years.

  3. Africa will surely be a market to explore by BlackBerry. I just hope they have a social responsibility for us too.
