BlackBerry has not officially commented on the report, but BlackBerry CEO had said in earlier interviews that new devices running on the BlackBerry 10 operating systems would be released this year.
The slide does not include any specifications but the illustrations of the new devices are shown beside those of the existing Z10 and Q10 handsets and their size in relations to these two devices could be roughly judged.
BlackBerry needs to be able to offer business users a full line of products that can compete with Samsung and Apple, according to Jack Gold, analyst at J. Gold Associates. Any “viable competitor” rolls out products that meet the varied preferences of the marketplace which would include tablets, smart phones and phablets, he said in an interview with Computerworld.com
Gold did not confirm any of the leaked details in the slide but he noted that the mid-priced smart phones BlackBerry mentioned earlier were not included in it.
