Blackberry Colt QNX Phone
BlackBerry Colt goes to the primary smartphone from the Canadian company to be powered by a QNX-based operating system. They’re still figuring out all kinds of kinks, however sales are slumping on current smartphones. Additional specifically, the Blackberry Colt launch has been something however stellar. The numbers are below expected and this might be largely as a result of all the RIM fans would rather wait it out to induce the QNX-based Colt instead.
Blackberry Colt with QNX OS
Research In Motion is said to be rushing its first QNX-powered smartphone to market in light of underwhelming Blackberry Colt devices sales. In a note to investors on Friday, Jefferies & Company analyst Peter Misek suggested demand for RIM’s new smartphones is not meeting expectations. An earlier report indicated that sales to enterprise customers have been solid thus far, while consumer demand may be lacking. Misek’s checks indicate that sales of BackBerry 7 phones to carriers is “just okay,” while sales of older BlackBerry smartphones continues to decline. The analyst believes follow up orders from carriers will also fall short of expectations, and RIM’s quarterly earnings could take a hit as a result.
RIM co-CEO Mike Lazaridis acknowledged back in June that the Blackberry Colt OS needs to be upgraded to “a higher performance platform” in order to remain competitive in the smartphone “features and performance arms race,” according to Between the Lines’ Larry Dignan. That is why RIM is transitioning its phones to the QNX platform: it offers full Flash and HTML 5 for a smooth multimedia experience, multitasking capabilities and an intuitive touch interface. According to BGR‘s anonymous source at RIM, the QNX-powered phone codenamed BlackBerry ‘Colt’ is already undergoing internal testing so at least we know it is coming down the pipe.
Blackberry Colt Release Date
And so the official release date of Blackberry Colt model will depend on how the internak testing goes. Many think that the smartphone will not bring enough market share, but others claim that if RIM will be able to revamp the BlackBerry handset with QNX and thus attract developers, the BlackBerry Colt will help the maker quite a lot in reclaiming its initial success. Blackberry Colt final price for this gadget was not officially announced.
