    “There’s some platforms out there now that are ubiquitous, there’s a lot of prevalence with them,” Mr. MacLeod said. “There’s just a hunger and a desire for people to see what’s new and innovative and different. ... That’s why we’ve seen a lot of the pre-sales and pre-reg has been from other platforms, they haven’t just been from BlackBerry.”

    But even as RIM rolls out the Z10 across the globe, and the BlackBerry Q10 – which has a physical keyboard – will follow, it is clearly just a beginning for RIM.

    Mr. MacLeod said “there’s a robust roadmap” of devices to come over the next year: They will be aimed at people who want devices in different shapes and sizes, and at the big emerging markets, such as Nigeria and Indonesia, where BlackBerry is still a strong brand.

    “Whether you want a smaller screen, a bigger screen – whether you want a hybrid between a smartphone or a tablet – I think what’s important is we now have a platform that can support all of those different preferences,” he said. “We will listen to the market and given them what they desire and want.”
