RIM has been counting on the BBX, oops we mean the BlackBerry 10, to be a game changer for them in the mobile market. RIM had to earlier rename the BBX platform to BlackBerry 10 owing to legal issues and now the BlackBerry 10 device, reportedly won’t hit store shelves until end of next year. BlackBerry fans waiting to get their hands on the QNX enabled devices would have to wait until 2012, as per reports by Engadget. Mike Lazaridis revealed that the delay is late arrival of a chipset, which is essential for the latest BlackBerry handsets; they won't come until the mid of next year. So, obviously the BlackBerry 10 device would come after a couple of months, hopefully.

BlackBerry 10 smartphone…delayed

Why not another chipset? Reportedly, RIM has no other alternative for the chipset that could strike a balance at prolonged battery life and faster processing. So, it has decided to wait. However, until then RIM plans to offer superior quality with its upcoming line-up of smartphones. The buzz is that BBX was always meant to be BlackBerry 10, ‘BB’ for Blackberry and 10 for the roman number ‘X.’
