Becca Caddy Blackberry Leave a Comment

Today RIM has officially launched its BlackBerry 10 operating system and has renamed itself just 'BlackBerry' at the same time, which makes complete sense as that seems to be what most of those not in the techy sphere refer to the company and its products as a whole anyway.
