    Continuing with the Lenovo theory...Lenovo uses X-Series, Y-Series, etc. for their naming of laptops. Maybe Lenovo and RIM have had a silent partnership understanding that announcing their partnership at the launch event would prove most beneficial for RIM and thus Lenovo. The partnership would result in RIM outsourcing hardware development to Lenovo, hence the Z and X Series phones, but branded the phone BlackBerry as that brand has a dedicated following within Smartphones. Lenovo will not brand their name on the device, but will be partner is hardware and thus taking a percentage of the sales off the devices.

    It wasn`t a buyout, but RIM WAS in the original press release as a prospective company they were looking into. My guess: the Lenovo couldn`t keep a lid on the partnership and the company`s press had to downplay the rumours.

    Most importantly, notice RIM declined to comment...;-)

    They might just mention that there will be more phones and tablets in the future, that they are not getting out of the tablet business and as proof, they are updating the current PlayBook with the BB 10 OS in the next X day/weeks.
    After that whole 60 days thing with the playbook, I would suspect that they will stay a looooooooooooooooooong way away from any specific promises about dates for playbook updates, they will simply go for a more general point that they are committed to both bb10 as a mobile os and bringing it to the playbook in time.

    Yeah! I always wondered if Mike walked into Jim's office and slapped him on the head after he said "email in 60 days".

    I like how BlackBerry 10 is evolving, but when are they going to fix BlackBerry Link for Mac?

    The fact that it doesn't reliably do what it's supposed to do ... most of the time ... is utterly appalling. The only consistency is the "Music not copied to Z10 message"

    Typical marketing management. They make promises with no concept behind what it involves.

    As someone who's worked in both marketing and R&D, I'm kind of offended by the sweeping generalization. While it does happen for sure, I wouldn't say "typical". I've also been on the other side where promised features don't get delivered, don't work right, get sand-bagged excessively etc.

    Goes both ways.
