BlackBerry 7 smartphones to miss BlackBerry 10 boat

 

RIM’s most recent announcement of the BlackBerry 10 operating system has breathed new hope into the company, and it does not look too likely that RIM will go belly up in a few months’ time, but it always pays to tread on the side of caution.

"Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.
