BlackBerry 10 release confirmed on EE, Orange, T-Mobile Vodafone and O2

Major UK networks will offer RIM's next handsets from launch

BlackBerry 10 is now a little over a month away from its expected UK release date with EE now confirming that a 4G BlackBerry smartphone is coming as well

BlackBerry 10 will, come release date, be available on EE, Orange, T-Mobile, Vodafone and O2 with the five networks confirming that they will be offering BlackBerry 10 smartphones when the new OS is launched at the end of January.

EE has effectively confirmed that BlackBerry will be launching a 4G BlackBerry smartphone running BlackBerry 10 after the UK network revealed it would be offering the smartphones on their superfast 4G network.

It's believed that BlackBerry will launch two handsets codenamed the L and N series with one being an all-touchscreen device while the other will feature the physical keyboard made famous by the Canadian company.

BlackBerry 10 smartphone leaked

Recently a Vietnamese tech website leaked what it believes to be the finalised version of the all-touchscreen device showing it to be thinner than the Dev Alpha handset and sporting the finished version of BlackBerry 10 included a Siri competitor.

This isn't the first time a company has tried to compete with Siri after Samsung launched S-Voice on the Samsung Galaxy S3. Elsewhere there's BlackBerry Hub which is the information hub for the OS letting a person swipe into it at any point.

With RIM about to release its quarterly results analysts are predicting that despite the very low predictions the company could well be performing better than expected.
