RIM's Roadmap for BlackBerry Leaked

Research in Motion seems to be grabbing headlines again and again - the latest news is that the BlackBerry maker's next 15 month road map has been leaked. According to sources, RIM is working on a number of new product launches to eventually culminate with the BlackBerry 10 device launch towards the latter half of 2012.

The first BlackBerry 10 device to be launched will be BlackBerry London - its unique features include an all touch display screen. RIM plans to drop its prominent and impressive physical QWERTY keyboard. According to reports, BlackBerry London will be launched in September despite a lot of speculation surrounding their 4G chipsets.

However, this year, many companies will be launching their flagship devices making it hard for the BlackBerry to regain its market position.

After the launch of London, RIM has lined up a hybrid touch/keyboard device to be launched after one month of London. There are also rumours that the company will launch a Blackberry 10 powered QWERTY slider handset in first quarter of 2013, reports Tech Crunch.

It seems the troubled company is ready to put in every effort to gain prominence in the smartphone market which has huge possibilities, but equally massive competition from Android and Apple devices.
