We have been waiting patiently for RIM to announce two pieces of information. First of all there is the obvious need to know exactly when the BlackBerry PlayBook will launch. Secondly RIM has been super quiet about what the next lineup of BlackBerry smartphones will look like. It has been ages since the BlackBerry Style launched and the BlackBerry Bold 9780 does not count.
That makes me wonder. Will RIM make any major announcements at CTIA Wireless 2011 in Florida from March 22-24? They definitely need to let out when the PlayBook will launch sooner rather than later so hopefully we hear that before the 22nd. Still it makes me wonder if RIM will announce these new BlackBerry devices we have heard rumored like the Torch 2, BlackBerry Bold Touch, Curve, and others for both CDMA and GSM networks. The question is if RIM will wait until May for their BlackBerry World conference.
Last year RIM did announce the BlackBerry Pearl 9100 and BlackBerry Bold 9650 at WES (which is now called BlackBerry World) but I am really hoping they do not wait that long. Current users are dying to know exactly when they will be getting updates since the BlackBerry lineup on many carriers, especially CDMA carriers, is getting really stale.
What do you think?
