In an interview with All Things D, Research in Motion Ltd. CEO Thorsten Heins
revealed the company will release six BlackBerry
10-based phones in Q1 of next year: three each of touchscreen and QWERTY models, at three different price points.
Hines makes several interesting points: He's not worried about missing the back-to-school and holiday seasons (carriers say that's largely prepaid product), RIM
will agressively target the ye-of-little-faith market that switched to Android-based phones, and the phones will feature technology that allows them to work on several frequencies through a single antenna.
