While Canadian and US carriers have been confirming that BlackBerry 10 is coming, European carriers haven’t been so giddy about announcing RIM’s new platform. EE one of the first European, and UK specific, carriers to announce that BlackBerry 10 will be launching on their network this year. EE is one of the European carriers that feature 4G LTE and this is great for BlackBerry fans looking to get the most out of their BlackBerry 10 device. We don’t have any concrete details on when the actual launch will be, just that it is happening in the first quarter of this year. Stay tuned to TheBerryFix for all the latest.

We have a leaked roadmap from T-Mobile’s internal channels showing a launch date for BlackBerry 10. And the date is not what anyone was hoping for; however, it’s not concrete and could change. The date is March 27th and it actually falls in line well with what we have heard from T-Mobile representatives. They have stated that T-Mobile will be launching BlackBerry 10 “later this year.” March would qualify well with that statement. Either way, we know T-Monile is getting BlackBerry 10. So, if you’re on that network you’ll get a chance to have the BlackBerry 10 goodness sometime this year.

We know that RIM is revealing BlackBerry 10 on January 30th; however, it’s only a reveal and not a release. The actual release could come anytime after the 30th, be it February 1st or March 31st. We have some new leaked information that shows the launch date may actually be somewhere in the middle of that range. The information shows BlackBerry 10 launching on Bell on February 28th. The leaked image also shows a price for the device, $799. This date and price would line up well with what we’ve been hearing, but we won’t know for sure till January 30th.

This week at CES 2013 in Vegas, RIM didn’t have a booth and there weren’t any major announcements from partners.

There were also big confirmations from the 4 major American carriers regarding BlackBerry 10. Read on past the break for how the confirmation from each carrier came in.

There’s not much more to say about this besides wait until January 30th and we’ll have all the details.

Earlier today we told you about the new BlackBerry Curve 9315 coming to T-Mobile this month. Now we have some information on the Curve 9320 coming to Bell Canada. Some internal documentation shows that Bell has ordered a batch of 9320′s and they will be launching on January 11th. This device has been on sale at various other retailers and now Bell is looking to get in on the action. Rumor has it that the 9320 will be retailing for $199.95. If you’re looking for a low-end BlackBerry device, this would be a great one to get, as RIM won’t be launching any low-end BlackBerry 10 devices for quite some time.

The first BlackBerry 10 full-touchscreen device is coming in February. We haven’t heard any concrete carrier information; however, from leaks we can assume that AT&T and Verizon are both going to be part of the launch. We’ve seen the AT&T model multiple times and the FCC has confirmed that one model of the device will run on AT&T’s LTE. Now we have confirmation that one is coming to Verizon. You can clearly see the Verizon branding on the Z10 on the left in the photo above. This is the Verizon model, the one in the center is an iPhone 4S, and the one on the right is the AT&T model. BlackBerry 10 is coming and Verizon customers can rest assured they will be able to get in on the action.

RIM and T-Mobile have announced today that the all-new BlackBerry Curve 9315 will be launching on January 23rd on T-Mobile. The 9315 is another low-end Curve variant aimed at a small number of BlackBerry customers on the T-Mobile network. Some features of the 9315 include:
- Instant messaging made easy – A dedicated BBM key and full QWERTY keyboard makes real-time chat with friends and family much easier.
- Social networks in real time – Preloaded apps for Facebook and Twitter and the new Social Feeds 2.0 app allow you to update multiple social applications simultaneously, and see feeds/updates from multiple sources in one consolidated view.
- Wi-Fi connectivity and calling - Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity for voice and data allow users to access the information they need when and where they need it and Wi-Fi calling allows for calls and messages over an available Wi-Fi network.
- Integrated camera – A 3.2MP camera with LED flash, digital zoom and support for video recording.
- Built-in FM radio – With an integrated FM radio, listen to your favorite local FM radio stations on the go without using data.
This device will be available for preorder on January 16th and orders begin shipping on the 23rd. The 9315 will also be in T-Mobile retail locations on the 23rd. It’s quite strange that RIM is still releasing BlackBerry OS 7 devices with BlackBerry 10 debuting on January 30th. This almost certainly means that RIM does not have any low-end BlackBerry 10 devices coming, a huge issue when the vast majority of their customers purchase the lower end devices. This could also signal that T-Mobile is not going to be carrying BlackBerry 10 at launch. Check past the break for the full Press Release.

With today being the first day of January 2013, RIM only has 30 days to get their ducks in a row for the debut of BlackBerry 10. Another of those ducks is now in line, as the FCC has approved some BlackBerry 10 devices. The device that has garnered FCC approval runs on AT&T’s LTE and GSM bands. There are also two more BlackBerry 10 devices awaiting approval. We would assume that one of these devices is a Verizon LTE model and the other could be any other combination, or it could be the first full-QWERTY keyboard device getting an early approval.

Some images have hit the internet that feature RIM’s second BlackBerry 10 device and the first to have a full-QWERTY keyboard. The images show the front and back of the phone, which is currently codenamed the BlackBerry X10. Honestly, this device looks exactly like the BlackBerry Bold 9900, but with a bigger screen and body. They also give a good idea of how the BlackBerry 10 OS will be presented on the square screen and how it all lines up above the keyboard. Check out the rest of the images after the break. and let us know what you think. Will this be one of the two phones that help RIM rise from the ashes, or will the flame burn out with this one?

Rumor has hit the internet that the upcoming BlackBerry 10 device, currently codenamed the L-Series, is going to debut as the BlackBerry Z10. This rumored name has shown up in a few places, including inventory screens for wireless carriers and on some leaked RIM spec sheets. People are embracing this as the official name for the device; however, they quickly and firmly embraced the L-Series moniker a few months back, so it’s really all just speculation right now. Check out some more information on the BlackBerry Z10, including specs and OS photos, after the break.

While the BlackBerry L-series has seen it’s fair share of leaks onto the World Wide Web, the QWERTY BlackBerry 10 has been quite shy. Well, that is until now. Today Nerd Berry leaked the first images of the all new QWERTY BlackBerry 10 Device that is now going by the marketing name X10. The X10 features the new BlackBerry 10 OS, a touch screen, as well as BlackBerrys traditional physical keyboard. While there’s only one image now, we’re sure more are to follow.
