RIM to delay analyst meetings until BlackBerry 10 devices launch

Research In Motion holds a presentation for financial analysts each year during its BlackBerry World conference in May, but the company has said that it will delay the meeting this year until after it launches its next-generation smartphones. “We decided to make BlackBerry World more focused on customers, developers and partners,” RIM spokeswoman Tenille Kennedy said to Reuters. “We will hold a separate session targeted at the interests of the investment community later this year, once BlackBerry 10 is launched.” The Waterloo-based company will hand out as many as 2,000 prototype BlackBerry 10 smartphones to developers in early May, although its next-generation smartphones are not slated to be released until late in the third quarter. BGR exclusively reported in January that RIM’s BlackBerry London is on track for a September launch and will be the first BlackBerry 10-powered handset. More →
