Because Alicia Keys wouldn't want to lead a company called RIM

The new Blackberry models are here, well two of them anyways, the fully touchscreen Z10 and the Q10 sporting the familiar keyboard.  Inside the Z10 is a 1.5GHz dual core SnapDragon S4 Plus, similar to the Lumina 920, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage, behind a 4.2-inch LCD at 1280 x 768 which gives it a better pixel density than the iPhone 5.  The Q10 sports the same insides but has a smaller screen to make room for the full keyboard and it has a resolution of 720 x 720.  The OS adds some interesting features and enhancements to BBM, such as video calling and Balance which separates work and personal apps and documents may allow some users with two phones to drop one in favour of the new BlackBerry.  On the other hand why you would need Instagram-like filtres for your pictures or a Storytime mode, but with around 70,000 applications not all can be winners.  You can catch Slashdot's reaction to the launch here.

Who cares?

RIM/BlackBerry died when its CEO appeared in public for years talking about hockey. Who wants to buy a phone from a tech co led by a complete idiot clueless about the challenge from Apple, Google and Microsoft?

Not me. I will never even look at this phone. And if you are smart neither will you. I don't buy phones from hockey fans.

I buy them from tech companies that focus on the task at hand and know exactly what their competition is doing all the time.

This company will be dead in a year or less.
