--BlackBerry 10 will get supported earlier, unsurprisingly as the platform is now the biggest Qt user in the mobile market. RIM said on Monday that it would release smartphones bearing its updated platform in January 2013.
"RIM has done a lot of work to make sure Qt runs smoothly on BlackBerry 10," Knoll said. "BlackBerry 10 has integrated Qt 4.8 support, but they will add 5.0 soon."
Regarding Windows 8, Knoll explained that Qt works well with the classic desktop mode, but Windows RT was a trickier proposition. "We got the first pixels onto the screen a few days ago," he said. "There's not too much working, except that we can draw some pixels."--

RIM Counts on Wave of BlackBerry Government Upgrades
"Research In Motion Ltd. (RIM)’s more than 1 million government customers in North America are set to upgrade to new BlackBerry 10 devices in droves, Chief Executive Officer Thorsten Heins said today. "Follow the breadcrumb trail of RIM's epic comeback with BB10BelieveIt on Twitter at @CrumbsObserver
--Asked how he can turn around the chorus of negative sentiment from stock analysts that has plagued RIM over the past few years, Heins said the company has shown the BlackBerry 10 phone to analysts and carriers in private and they are “excited.”
On the same day that one U.S. analyst made headlines last week by saying the BlackBerry 10 would be “dead on arrival,” two other analysts gave RIM’s stock a buy rating, Heins said. But their comments were largely ignored.
The U.S. media is quick to turn a company from “hero to zero” and vice versa, he said. “It’s more important what the customers are telling me,” he noted, adding “the best proof is to deliver.”
RIM isn’t planning a huge TV ad campaign in the weeks leading up to the BlackBerry 10 release on Jan. 30, Heins said.
Instead, it will use a “below the line” strategy of sending out video clips of the platform’s keyboard, flow and multi-tasking functions to bloggers and on-line reviewers. Ads will be pushed to other smartphone users asking them “can your device do this?” he said.
Only when the BlackBerry 10 is finally released will the “fireworks above the line” be seen in the form of big TV ads, Heins said.--

--In an interview with Reuters on Wednesday, RIM Chief Executive Thorsten Heins admitted that app libraries play a crucial role in the success or failure of smartphones. But he said the game is not just about numbers.
"The tactic we are deploying is by country and by region. We are aiming to have the most important 200 to 400 apps available, because many applications are regional and they really do have a regional flavor," Heins said.
RIM says it aims to offer both the most popular applications in the market, and also those most relevant to Blackberry aficionados - people Heins described as hyper-connected multi-taskers who need to get things done.--
--RIM has already said it plans business focused apps from the likes of Cisco WebEx, Box, SAP and Blackboard, as well as music and movie apps like TuneIn, Nobex and Popcornflix and gaming apps from developers like Gameloft, Halfbrick and Paw Print Games.
Heins has said social networks such as LinkedIn, Foursquare, Twitter and Facebook will all have apps for BB10 at launch. But he declined to name any of the other big name apps that RIM will have on board come launch day.
"Allow me to talk to you about this on January 30, otherwise I'm losing a lot of thunder," he said.--

--In addition to getting this excellent video, the folks at Muy Computer also spoke with a couple different RIM associates at the BlackBerry Jam 2012 for Enterprises event. The event’s purpose was to demonstrate the BB OS 10 and the ease at which developers can both create and port apps.

The more I see and read about BB10, the more I'm convinced it's going to be huge - bigger than what is anticipated, bigger that what we all are anticipating!BB's so-far.... 8300, 8330, 8707v, 8900, 9000, 9105, 9300, 9700, 9780, 9800, 9860, 9900, 9860, 32gb Playbook, Ipad2, another BNIB 9700., and now back to my all-time favourite - the 9105! Whooaa. Scrap that. I have just took the plunge and bought a shiny new white Z10.
I like to throw tin cans at people, twice if they support E*e*er City.

I hear that! My hat goes off to Mr. Heins, who has turned this company around in less then a year, or there abouts. He made a believer out of me. I often wonder IF any of this would have been possible without him, and the other technical geniuses behind him, and everyone associated with this up coming release. Sometimes I will admit I used to be apprehensive on telling my friends what kind of phone I had because of the comments and laughing, Now I am finally going to be the one to laugh at all of the non believers. All of the other platforms are going to have their work cut out for them after this one comes out!! Gonna take a lot to top this one for sure
--“I don’t define myself as I want to be number one in the smartphone segment, we built this platform because I want to be a clear innovation leader in the mobile computing domain.” Heins said. With QNX and the world’s largest private, secure global data network, RIM wants to manage all mobile endpoints. The company wants to be everywhere and in every device. Heins is banking on a three- to 10-year play that the smartphone replaces the laptop computer.--

--Quite a few readers forwarded this latest act of rampant Apple fanboy-ism masquerading as journalism from Gizmodo. It seems like Casey Chan at Gizmodo did not have anything better to do but post this ridiculous article about the Getty Images of RIM’s CEO’s taking a picture with BlackBerry 10 devices. His article has sort of backfired in the Gizmodo comments but I thought we could take it up a notch.

--Time will tell if these are simply too many gestures to pack into one area, but I do think these innovations are something Apple should take note of. I’ve been an iPhone user since the beginning and yet I still find myself tripping over auto-corrections, especially because they require me to take move away from the keyboard to reject them. This means that I have to look away from the keys while typing to see if everything is spelled correctly, or look at the keyboard while I type and risk being auto-corrected in an idiotic way.
I much prefer solutions like the one that RIM presents in Blackberry 10, where the keyboard and auto-correction or prediction are melded into one cohesive unit on-screen.--
