    Default Is BlackBerry 10 is the newer version of BOLD or A new different brand?

    Hello All...

    I just want to ask, is the BlackBerry 10 smartphone that'll come out next year is the newer version of BlackBerry BOLD series? or is it another new stand-alone brand with the new updated OS (10 OS)?

    Thank you.

    it will be a mix of all you have said. the Bold series will get an update that runs the new OS. there probably will be a new brand added to the BB stable to replace one of the old guards

    No, it REALLY won't! All current BlackBerry smartphone are not compatible with the new OS.
    There will be (at launch) two new smartphones in the BB10 range, one full touch and one QWERTY/touch.
    What they will be branded as is not generally known at this point. The full touch has a code name of "London", but that may or may not be it's offical launch name.
    The QWERTY BB10 smartphone may, or may not be an extension of the Bold range.
    These questions should all be answered on January 30th 2013 during the launch event.

    Listen to simu31... that's all correct.

    Note, however, that if you visit html5test.com with the latest beta, it reports that you're using a "RIM BlackBerry Touch", for whatever that's worth...
