Now, Jefferies analyst Peter Misek claimed that RIM will not be releasing any of its BB 10 devices until March.
“We had hoped for a January launch but now see a March launch as more likely […] Also, our checks point to a tough November quarter, with replenishment rates decreasing as channel partners are cautious on holding RIM inventory.
We think the business uncertainty means parties are unlikely to acquire or license from RIM until BB10 launches.”
RIM is pretty much dependent on the BB 10 OS to keep the company afloat. The company is on a steady slide downwards. According to the latest reports, BlackBerry OS has been given some 4.71 percent of the global mobile operating system market, far behind Google Android at 28.01 percent and Apple’s iOS at 24.5 percent. That is quite a lot of downfall when compared to Blackberry being quite popular around a couple of months back.
Until RIM can launch its next-generation smartphone platform, it’s dependent on an aging portfolio of hardware and software headed by the BlackBerry 7 OS.
