RIM has kept a pretty tight lid on the final release details of BlackBerry OS 10 and the first BlackBerry 10 phone, the Z10. Today, BGR has not only learned some details on Z10 pricing, they have also set up a full walkthrough of all the apps, features, and screens that BlackBerry OS 10 has to offer. Pricing of the Z10 is made to be better than competitive. RIM is looking to bring the Z10 to market under the current market standard of $199. The rumor is that a $149 contract price is what you’ll be looking at upon release, possibly lower depending on your carrier.
There is a full walkthrough of all the screens, apps, and features of BlackBerry 10, including setup, BlackBerry Maps, NFC functionality, and even the calculator. The gallery totals 100 images and is available for viewing over at BGR by clicking the link below. With only 9 short days until BlackBerry 10 is fully revealed to the world, these images and details are likely the last bit of information we will be seeing until the full reveal by RIM.

RIM announced a while back that BlackBerry App World, the storefront for apps and games for BlackBerry OS, would be getting an overhaul for BlackBerry 10. The changes include a name change to just BlackBerry World and the addition of music and video content. That transition has started today, with BlackBerry World being the official, one-stop-shop for all apps, games, music, and movies for BlackBerry users.
Until BlackBerry 10 launches, the music and movies portion of BlackBerry World will be unavailable. This new storefront will serve as the place for downloads on your BlackBerry 7 smartphone, BlackBerry PlayBook, and BlackBerry 10 smartphone. You can hit the link below to check out the redesigned BlackBerry World.

With only 11 days until the official unveiling of BlackBerry 10, there’s not much time to leak the surprises that RIM has planned for BlackBerry 10. The latest surprise to leak is a pretty big one, especially with Siri being such a big and helpful feature on iOS. RIM has prepared a completely new voice control feature for BlackBerry 10. To activate voice control, you just hold the play/pause button on the side, which is located between the volume up/down buttons. She will come up asking what she can do for you and then you can perform all sorts of actions just by speaking.
Voice control allows you to do things like send a text, call a phone number, or play a song, all by just pressing a button and speaking. This feature is much like Siri on iOS, with a similar voice and the familiar conversation bubbles that she uses. I’ll let you decide if copying Apple directly is a good or bad plan for RIM and BlackBerry 10. I’ll leave you with this, it certainly is an awesome feature and you should check out the video above to see for yourself. The video also features a walkthrough of some of the native apps like Twitter and Facebook, so that makes it worth a look, too.

We know that Verizon is going to be launching the first BlackBerry 10 phone, the Z10, sometime in the coming months. We also know that it will be launching in both a black and a white model. What we didn’t know, until now, is that Verizon would be launching the Z10 in both black and white. A page on Verizon Wireless’s website, which we assume to be unpublished at the moment, shows that Verizon is not only launching the first BlackBerry 10 device, but also that is is officially called the Z10 and will be available in both black and white. The unveiling is only 12 days away and the launch will be shortly after that, so we don’t have too much longer to wait.

Yesterday we saw the full specs for the first BlackBerry 10 phone, the Z10, leak out. Today we have some more information on that 1,800, mAh battery that will be used to power the device. The Z10 will get the following battery life on the standard battery:
- GSM Talk Time: 8 hrs, GSM Standby Time: 305 hrs
- UMTS Talk Time: 10 hrs, UMTS Standby Time: 285 hrs
- Audio Playback: 60 hrs, Video Playback: 10 hrs
These times are, as usual, best case estimates and you won’t get anywhere near these in real world usage. Keep in mind that these times are for the GSM model of the Z10 only, and that the times are only listed for GSM and UMTS. The times for 4G LTE, which most North American devices will run, should be significantly less than this. We’ll keep you up to date as more information leaks out prior to the official unveiling on January 30th.

RIM is planning to unveil BlackBerry 10 and the first two devices to run it, the Z10 and X10, on January 30th in multiple locations across the globe. Even though these two devices are unannounced and unreleased, we’ve still seen tons of leaked images and videos of them. Now, we have the full specs for the full touchscreen device, the Z10 or L-Series, available.
This device will feature a 4.2″ touch panel display with a resolution of 1280 x 786. The processing power will be provided by a 2 GHz, dual core Snapdragon chip with 2 GB of RAM on board. The rear camera will be 8MP and the front will come in at 2MP. In addition to these specs, we will have WiFi, NFC, 4G LTE, and an 1,800 mAh battery. There will also be a version of the Z10 that does not have LTE, which will be reserved for markets where LTE is not yet available, such as the UK and India.
While the actual specs could possibly be different from this, it’s highly unlikely given the timing and the images this information was sourced from. Check out the rest of the spec images past the break and let us know what you think.

We’ve seen some small leaks of the upcoming BlackBerry X10 QWERTY keyboard device, but now we’re getting an even better look. An Instagram user has posted some shots of the X10. One model is connected to Verizon’s network and the other isn’t showing a carrier connection. This device looks almost identical to the current Bold 9900, but with a much larger touch display. Enjoy these shots, they are likely the last few we will see before RIM officially unveils this device on January 30th.

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.
