RIM Names the First BlackBerry 10 Phone as Z10
We've seen the BlackBerry 10 (BB10) device in flesh the past week and now, the device is given a name - Z10.
According to a leaked image by Unwired View, the full-touch device, currently known by its codename "L-Series", is likely to be launched in the market as the BlackBerry Z10. In addition, the company appears to be launching two color variants of the Z10: black and white. The other BB10 device, which has a physical keyboard and known by its codename "N-series", is believed to be called X10.
Research in Motion (RIM) will launch both BB10 devices at an event on 30th January 2013, and CEO Thorsten Heins remains confident that BB10 and its upcoming devices will be a success. The company yesterday announced Q3 results, which saw its cash position increased by approximately US$600 million to US$2.9 billion. Its subscriber base is up by three million to 79 million when compared to the same quarter last year.
