New BlackBerry smartphones 'being tested by 50 wireless carriers': RIM.

Washington, Nov 1 ( ANI ): Embattled BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion (RIM) has said that its much-delayed smartphones are now being tested by 50 wireless carriers across the world.

RIM CEO Thorsten Heins called it a 'key step' as it prepares to launch the new BlackBerry 10 software and phones in the first quarter of next year.

"I'm very pleased to confirm that we have passed a critical milestone in the development of our brand new mobile computing platform," CBS News quoted Heins, as saying.

"This process will continue in the coming months as more carriers around the world formally evaluate the devices and our brand new software," he added.

According to the report, the new range of BlackBerry phones are seen as critical to RIM's survival.

The release will come as the company struggles in North America to hold onto customers who are abandoning BlackBerrys for flashier iPhones and Android phones. ( ANI )
