Research in Motion has already promised that they are aiming to launch their first generation BB10 devices in the first quarter of next year.
Online sources are now reporting that the company should be able to launch the first model in March 2013.
This is likely to be a full touchscreen device with no hardware keyboard. Devices with iconic hardware keyboards are only likely to arrive in June.
RIM has bet big on the success of Blackberry 10 platform. They would finally have a mobile platform that can match the capabilities and convenience of Apple iOS and Google Android. However, they face intense competition from not only these two market leaders but also Windows Phone platform which is seeing huge traction in the market today because of the marketing dollars being spent by Microsoft.
