With the end of the month rapidly approaching, and with it the BB10 device and software announcement, early feedback from Rogers Wireless in Canada is encouraging for the embattled company from Waterloo. According to the report from Rogers, reservations began in mid-December for folks interested in purchasing the new Blackberry handset – and the registration numbers appear to be “strong” in Rogers opinion. And more registrations continue daily. Since no specific numbers for these pre-orders were given, it doesn’t mean much. But it should be encouraging to RIM fans.
Early reviews of the new BB10 operating system have been mixed, with some positives and some disappointments. But for my money, I’m pretty intrigued, and would very much like to see if Verizon gets a new BB device. And if I’d consider purchasing one, I’m sure that lots more Blackberry fans would too. January 30th is the scheduled date of the RIM announcement…it can’t get here fast enough!
