RIM will start selling smartphones based on its new BlackBerry 10 operating system beginning in February, 2013 according to Bloomberg , the month after it officially unveils them January 30 at an event announced yesterday. That’s according to RIM COO Kristian Tear, who followed up with that information after the company announced BB10′s public launch.
“We want to do it as quickly as possible,” Tear told Bloomberg in an interview, saying that the company hopes to get its first BB10 devices out to consumers within 30 days of the official launch party in “multiple continents.” The company had originally not specified a date, saying only that BB10 hardware would arrive in the first quarter of 2013, and a later report suggested that they might actually not make it to market until March, at the very end of that quarter.
RIM will likely provide more detail about when exactly customers can pick up BB10 smartphones at their January event, and for how much. So far, we know handsets are with carriers around the world for testing, and now RIM has confirmed that it’s not looking for a drawn out wait between the official product launch and retail ship dates. Good for them.
If you’re interested in how BB10 performs, we’ve got an extensive hands-on video from a recent build to check out to satisfy your curiosity.Related Posts:
We are building up to a big shopping season. Along with the happiness of all our loved ones expecting high-tech gifts to enrich their lives, our consumer choices this year will determine the destinies of some of the biggest companies in the electronics industry.
Chief among them is Nokia, who last week reported yet another round of dire sales and revenue numbers and now faces a true make-or-break moment. The company’s financial woes have been an ongoing saga for many months, but its dwindling cash reserves and upcoming release of the all-new Windows Phone 8 range both mark out November 2012 as one of the most crucial months in its history. If consumers buy into the new Lumias, preferably in a literal sense, Nokia can begin to climb…
Canon unveiled a new entry in its DSLR lineup this morning, the full-frame Canon 6D which arrives sometime in December. The camera is priced at $ 2,099 U.S., at or slightly above where its previous generation 5D Mark II is currently sitting at most retailers, and well under the $ 3,500 asking price of the 5D Mark III or the $ 6,800 1DX. It’s an attractive and affordable choice for those looking at at a 7D, which is based around much smaller APS-C sensor tech, and right on par with Nikon’s latest D600 full-frame, which also retails for $ 2,099. The question is, with these kinds of specs in a full-frame body at these prices, is it only a matter of time before APS-C gets retired altogether?
Here’s a detailed look at what the 6D brings to the table: It packs a 20.2MP full-frame sensor, and an 11-point autofocus system with a single cross-type sensor. The native ISO range is 100 to 25,600 (expandable to 50 to 102,400), and Canon claims it’ll focus in lower light situations than any of its previous shooters. It has a Digic 5+ processor, the same as its more expensive brethren, shoots at a maximum of 4.5fps in burst mode, and boasts environmental sealing against dust and splashes. For video folks, it shoots 1080p video at up to 30fps, and 720p at up to 60fps. There’s an SDXC slot for memory, and it uses the existing LP-E6 battery type (which works with 5D Mark II and III, 60D and 7D), and on top of everything else it’s Canon’s first DSLR that incorporates GPS and Wi-Fi radios into the body, rather than requiring the purchase of costly add-on equipment.
There are some things that are disappointing here and things that could really change the way a Canon-owner shoots. The focusing system is maybe the most potentially disappointing feature; the 7D (introduced in 2009) had a 19 point AF system, all of which were cross-type (more accurate), and the burst mode seems slightly sluggish at the top end, especially in comparison to the Nikon D600, which clocks in at a maximum of 5.5fps. There’s also the viewfinder, which provides a look at 97 percent of the image, but not a full field of view. That’s bound to disappoint.
But the 6D also offers a lot more that wouldn’t have been conceivable at the $ 2,000 price point in the past, including full-frame image quality with greater dynamic range and presumably much-improved low light performance vs. APS-C-based cameras. Plus, the built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, while present in a number of compacts from companies including Canon, is relatively rare in DSLRs, and represents a huge total cost-savings vs. buying Canon’s official transmitters and GPS dongles for their other high-end shooters.
But the 6D is still about $ 1,000 more than Canon’s entry-level DSLRs, like the T3i and T3, which are among its most popular sellers. Cutting down that gap without hamstringing a full-frame device even further could be difficult to do. And the sacrifices Canon has made with the 6D have certainly rubbed some the wrong way, according to the long threads of complaints at sites like DPReview, so this could be a case of missing two market segments by trying to appeal to both.
Whatever the 6D isn’t, it is an entry-level full-frame from Canon to match the one recently introduced by Nikon, and both are going to change the shape of the DSLR market. Neither may kill the APS-C, and neither company likely wants to at this point, since so many of their users have invested in lenses that only work on crop sensor bodies. Users forced to upgrade and leave those behind too quickly would get their nose bent out of shape, but with mirrorless designs using Micro Four Thirds and other smaller sensor types catching up to DSLRs in terms of performance, ultimately full-frame is the way to go to keep shoppers looking at and interested in single-lens tech. The Canon 6D, warts and all, is a good bridge device to get users moving towards a full-frame future.Related Posts:

Nokia unveiled its Lumia Windows Phone devices on Wednesday to a packed out crowd at Nokia World 2011 in London.
Opinion of the first two Nokia Windows Phones is heavily split. Nokia introduced two devices on Wednesday that it feels can compete in European markets. The Lumia 800 is Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone and packs a 1.4 GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 8-megapixel camera and 16GB onboard storage. The specifications are somewhat average for what Nokia claims is the “first real Windows Phone.” Nokia’s second Windows Phone, the Lumia 710, also includes a 1.4 GHZ processor, 512MB RAM and a 5-megapixel camera. Nokia has also opted to ship just 8GB of storage on the 710.
Reaction from Nokia World attendees was mixed. Some claimed Nokia was dead whilst others saw the positive points of Nokia’s devices and most agreed that the phones were disappointing or underwhelming. Nokia’s Lumia devices face competition from HTC and Samsung this holiday season, two of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world. Nokia’s Lumia devices lack forward facing cameras and a significant differentiation from other Windows Phone devices. The Finnish handset maker hopes to set its devices apart with some unique app offerings. Nokia’s Drive, Music and Sports apps are all aimed at improving the Windows Phone experience for new users. Nokia’s biggest disadvantage in this area is that the vast majority of potential smartphone adopters this holiday season have never heard of Windows Phone and will be unlikely to filter through to Nokia’s marketing message.
Samsung’s Focus S appears to be the popular choice amongst Windows Phone users this holiday season thanks to its 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen, 8-megapixel camera and forward facing camera support. Nokia’s entry into Windows Phone is a softly softly approach that is designed to create awareness and limited adoption. It’s clear that Nokia plans to expand on its Lumia range of Windows Phones and given its broad support for Symbian, I’d expect the same for Windows Phone devices. The main differentiator this holiday season is Nokia’s incredible build quality and unique coloring of its Windows Phones. The “fashion” approach is likely to resonate with the average consumer and will help to market Windows Phone across its initial markets. Nokia’s lack of U.S. Windows Phones is a clear way of avoiding a crowded market at peak time. Apple’s iPhone 4S and Google’s Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) devices will likely dominate holiday sales in the United States. Nokia hasn’t fared well in the U.S. before so it’s the worst time to enter a market and not execute fully. Nokia’s “Ace” device is still on the horizon and rumors suggest that it will be unveiled in the first quarter of 2012. Nokia’s Windows Phone offerings are just the beginning of what is likely to become an important ecosystem for Microsoft and its partners. Will the Lumia devices win praise this holiday season though?

I’m a die-hard paper fan. I have a few shelves of books in almost every room of the house and I love taking a stack of magazines or newspapers on a plane – this is so ingrained in my psyche that I actually save magazines a few weeks before a long trip so I have something to read. But slowly, ever so slowly, this love of paper is leaving me. First I abandoned print journalism for the bare-knuckle punch-fest that is blogging and then I stopped reading print books and instead took up the Kindle then the iPad. I literally have not cracked a paperback or hardback for a full, long read in more than a year. I’m not writing this to prove my early adopter cred but because the thought amazes me.
I still read the NY Times in dead-tree form and, although for a little while I thought The Daily would be the future of daily news, I think I’ll stick with the paper version for a few more months, at least until I wrap my head around the psychological process of reading general daily news online.
But the one thing I thought I’d never do was abandon my magazine habit. But slowly surely magazines fell off my radar. First it was Wired because all the news in there I had read months before on the Internets. Then it was the Economist because I’d end up with a stack of magazines full of great stuff that I’d never read. I let my subscription to Fortune lapse and haven’t missed it. But if there’s one magazine I can’t get enough of in print form it’s the New Yorker.
I love the magazine. It has great, long pieces and funny marginalia. It has comics that I actually go through and consume before I read the actual articles. It has John Seabrook, whose Deeper turned me on to tech writing, and Anthony Lane. It’s like an effete liberal adult’s Mad Magazine without the harping of Harpers and the boredom of the Atlantic Monthly. The cover was always great, it was slim, and thus a copy of the New Yorker has accompanied me on almost every trip I’ve taken in the past decade.
But I’m about to cancel my print subscription. Why? Because the iPad version is far superior.
The iPad version includes everything that currently exists in the print title – including the full-page ads for Rolex and probably that damn Pokeboat – except in a much cleaner form. Each issue costs $ 4.99 and e-only subscriptions cost $ 59 a year. iPad and print subscriptions cost $ 69. That’s right: Conde Nast puts so little value on the paper that the magazine is printed on that it will give it to you for use as kindling for a mere $ 10 more. Other titles like GQ and Wired will cost $ 1.99 an issue or $ 19.99 a year. I doubt they will sell as well as the New Yorker.
Why? Well, the New Yorker is text heavy. It’s not quite gray in the way some magazines are – the iPad app uses the New Yorker’s classic ACaslon Regular font to reduce the general density of the text – and the stories are long and engaging. There are no graphical tricks, not too many multimedia events and when there are they’re great (one poetry reading by Sherman Alexie in the latest issue was amazing). And even the ads are unobtrusive and, dare I say it, beautiful in full living color. Everything about the iPad version is the same yet strikingly different. This isn’t some rush-job given to a bunch of magazine designers who slap a little video in the corner of a horribly laid-out page. This is a full rethinking of the title and changes entirely how we consume long-form writing.
There is something in our core that loves a book. We love the paper, the smell, the visual cues and dog-eared bookmarking techniques. But I wonder if this is a learned response, handed down to us in a long line that began with Gutenberg and ended with Mom, Pop, and our favorite English teacher. I wonder if my kids will care about books as much as I did – the physical objects, not the stuff inside – and whether their kids will even know books exist. There are generational overlaps that happen all the time. My father’s old records, once wildly important to him in the 1960s and 70s ended up in my hands in the 90s and taught me to love Bob Dylan, the Beatles, and the Stones. But will I ever fire them up again? No. Those records were the last gasp of a discovery engine that stopped when the last mass-market LP was sold in the last Tower Records store. That engine can’t start again, but I suspect my own son will find my old CDs, become curious, and then go off on a journey of his own. I wonder how his son, years from now, will find my son’s discarded bits and reconstitute them into music but that’s a sad and metaphysical thing – the passing of bits from parent to child – that I don’t even want to ponder it.
Talk all you want about how paper isn’t going anywhere and how there are still billions of people who depend on books in distant countries where educational- and news-reading is still stuck in the Paper Age. I think the first wave will break when colleges go iPad-only and those same educated students will teach their children from the iPad. The next wave comes when the children’s book binders start shuttering their plants and the final wave will come when the print newspapers and magazines fall en masse along with publishers. They will exist, but they will have changed.
What does this mean for the magazines that are currently print-only? Well, they have to become more interesting. They have to embrace the flow of news and information and they have to differentiate themselves from us blogger hacks by spending real money on stories. This is hard. They’ve been used to a steady stream of revenue from print subscriptions. They’ve been used to long lead times, plenty of time to prepare, and they’ve been held hostage by the old methods of top down editorial. They claim that advertisers can’t wrap their heads around the Internet. But they can – it’s been proven again and again. A few tech titles, PC Magazine and Laptop come to mind immediately, have already made this leap. Others will follow.
The New Yorker iPad app proves that great writing is great writing, no matter how it’s displayed. It is new wine poured into new wineskins: everything works, nothing is strange, and the product tastes as sweet as it did in the old skins.
