    Research In Motion Ltd. unveiled two new BlackBerry phones on Wednesday crucial to the company's turnaround, but the first of the those devices won't be available in the crucial U.S. market until mid-March.

    In an interview ahead of a BlackBerry 10 launch event in New York, RIM Chief Executive Thorsten Heins said the first of two phones—a touch-screen-only device called the Z10—will be available in the U.K. and Canada later this week.

    Since the WSJ got it straight from the horse's mouth that is unlikely.

    Ugh....it seems like each time we get a to a benchmark date, it's just another "coming soon" announcement....coming soon....coming soon....coming soon.
    Well, that confirms the analyst that said in NOVEMBER....that BB10 devices wouldn't hit until March....Son of a #*&%!

    Gotta go with the markets that have been most supportive. Not great for those that have been waiting but by March, there should be quite a buzz as to how much time this device is going to save us. This is really the biggest positive about BB10, it will save time personally and business-wise as well. By the time it gets to the US, I am pretty sure there will be more interest than from the launch today. Sorry to those that have been waiting.

    Do you think the US delay is due to the carriers, or a result of a need to build up a sufficient inventory of devices to get to the carriers?

    I'm sure it's the carriers. Probably negotiated BISTaxes up until the last second without a commitment to buy.

    I think you are right and add in there a little bit of snobbery on the part of the U.S. Carriers and RIMs inability to execute (once again) in the markets it really needs to do well in.
    BGR was right, late March. That stinks.

    Feel good for those that can get them sooner and feel bad for RIM not learning their lessons and stepping in it once again.
    The press is going to serve RIM up RAW!

    Yeah, you could hear the crickets when he said March release for the US. But personally, I am blown away by the presentation and I'll deal with the wait.

    That sucks for Americans, but I think it also comes with the territory. Usually when new phones are released, we in Canada don't see them for 2 - 3 months after release. What could hurt RIM though is losing out on some potential buyers if the S4 is released in April as some rumours suggest.

    Yep. This makes the Superbowl ad a bit pointless IMO.
