Earlier this week The Star published an interesting article about RIM trying to compare it with Apple’s comeback but it was a bit all over the place. Its saving grace was some solid quotes from RIM executives including Thorsten Heins. Now Thorsten Heins has sat down with The Telegraph for a much longer more cohesive interview that I think is well worth reading. In it Heins discusses how BlackBerry is not “in a trough” and details some other quote-able quotes. He even shares a bit about how his BlackBerry 10 device has never reset on him and other details. Here are some of my favorite:

  • “We don’t have the resources like a Microsoft; we have to place one bet and make it right; we don’t want to go for an intermediate step. It comes out in the first quarter and I think a lot of people are going to be surprised.”
  • He claims that the last major release, the sixth of eight milestones on the way to the final version, was the biggest and the most disruptive. “We were not happy that this had happened. But we were satisfied with the software being built. Am I disappointed? Sure I am but if you build a whole new platform it’s a different size of a task.”

I highly recommend checking out the full interview here at the Telegraph

  1. Ronen, I was wondering what is the BB10 developement process? According to what I read about Apple – they have “16 fanatical developers involved in the development process for the Iphone.” It seems the BB10 phones are more complex, thus causing the BB10 phone delays. Also it is probably due to the complete overall to a completely new operating system.
