This much-awaited event was delayed twice; however witnessed the company unveil two smartphones as well as the platform, which powers them. As reported one of the handsets will have touchscreens, on the other hand some would be equipped with the mini keyboards, which typically favors BlackBerry. On the other hand, the handset with mini keyboard would be introduced later in the year.
RIM, BlackBerry’s makers, said that the new devices will be faster and smoother and will have a well-stocked app store by the time of their release.
In past two years, the fortunes of RiM have been tumbled, since its devices are overtaken by Android-based devices as well as Apple’s iPhone.

This means that US as well as Canadian government agencies might equip their staff with these smartphones once they are ready. RIM had tested these handsets last month.
