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.

Posting this with my playbook which I just love! I am also really interested in seeing BB10-devices…. Too bad RIM is taking such a beating at the moment. While I’m not sure delaying it further is a good thing it needs to be better executed than the Playbook launch where many core apps such as calendar and email were missing.
QNX is such a good OS and I would hate to see it sink with RIM…
