Pocket-Lint: RIM has announced that shortly after it debuts BlackBerry 10 worldwide on 30 January, the company plans to run a Super Bowl ad hyping the new mobile OS on 3 February.
In its release, RIM also confirmed the arrival of BlackBerry 10 tablets at some point. Many details on a BlackBerry 10 tablet haven't been shared, so it's nice to hear official word from RIM, even if accidentally.
It is sad that BlackBerry is struggling to stay alive and it looks like the ailing Canadian company could officially kill the BlackBerry brand in 2017. Of course, it could still have a tiny thread of existence with its Android range of smartphones that’s if they think its financially wise and technically viable.
BlackBerry 0S 10 future is no longer certain, the Canadian OEM recently announced the layoff of additional 200 staff; 125 from its HQ in Waterloo, Ontario and 75 in Sunrise, Florida.
The BlackBerry Passport and Galaxy S5 are representative handsets for the companies that made this year and if you are set on getting your hands on a flagship device you can show off as well as benefit from, these two should definitely be on your list.
