NEW YORK, USA: Research in Motion (RIM) renamed itself as BlackBerry and announced its its new BlackBerry 10 software.

BlackBeryy also announced two smartphones that will be running the BlackBerry 10.

The new BB Z10 is a complete touch device with a 4.2-inch capacitive display. The Z10 packs in Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor paired with 2GB RAM. There will also be a 16GB onboard storage along with the expandable memory of up to 32 GB. There is also an 8MP camera that can draw on benefits from the BB10 operating system.

BlackBerry has also announced the Q10 smartphone with a 3.1-inch display with 720×720 resolution. The device will be powered by TI OMAP 1.5GHz dual-core processor along with 2GB RAM. other features include Wi-Fi; Assisted, Autonomous, and Simultaneous GPS; NFC; microUSB; microHDMI-Out and Bluetooth 4.0 are some of the connectivity features onboard.

The back of the Q10 has been crafted of glass-weave material, which the company claims is exclusive to the BB Q10 only. However, the BlackBerry Q10 will only go on sale in April.

The New York Times reports quoting analysts and app developers with advance access to the BlackBerry Z10 and the BlackBerry 10 operating system said they liked the Z10, calling it the company’s first competitive touch-screen phone.

But the BlackBerry 10 arrives long after Apple’s iPhone and phones using Google’s Android operating system have come to dominate the smartphone market, so its success is anything but assured. According to IDC, BlackBerry now holds just 4.6 percent of that market, about pone-tenth of its peak market share.

Analysts are concerned about how long it will take for the phones to go on sale in the United States. BlackBerry said the Z10 would be available in Canada on Feb. 5 and in the United States in March. Verizon Wireless announced that it would sell the Z10 for $200 with a two-year contract. BlackBerry 10 phones will also be carried by AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, but those companies said they would announce prices later.
