PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Iain Marlow interviews Thorsten Heins: "While the core technology of BlackBerry 10 is ready to go - outside developers are already working on an array of applications - I decided that the way some features worked together and the related software integration needed more attention and refinement. The goal of BlackBerry 10 is to bring some of the best technologies in the world together in a seamless environment. Simply put, I could still see some of the seams. [...] We decided to delay the launch of BlackBerry 10 to give us ample time to integrate software, test, and polish the final product." While I wonder if RIM can take such a delay, I'm glad Heins understands the importance of polish. since many PlayBook owners appear quite content with their device, I'm very curious to see what BB10 will be like.

I'm very interested in the changes they brought to the UI.

Don't get too hopeful with that. TAT was responsible for the look & feel of SE A100 and A200 platforms (search their names on http://www.mobile-review.com/review-en.shtml - and also G502 for example), and of some other "feature phone" ones from LG or Samsung IIRC.
And while quite decent, they weren't particularly remarkable, here and there even chaotic a bit - so it's hard to tell if their big effort will be great or so-so.
