Research in Motion (RIM) – the company behind BlackBerry – has announced that they have acquired Paratech Microwave Inc., a company with expertise in tunable radio frequency (RF) technology.
RIM plan to work with them to integrate adaptive tuning functionality into future BlackBerry phones and products. This move follows their recent strategy of purchasing outside expertise to complement their own technological prowess to provide leading edge improvements and enhancements to their BlackBerry phones and accessories. Late last year RIM also acquired Irish firm NewBay, which provides social networking, photographic and video tools for smartphones.
NewBay has considerable expertise in both storing media and delivering it to internet connected products, including mobile phones and televisions. It is likely that RIM will use NewBays’ online photo, video, address book and other similar services to increase user content offerings to its BlackBerry users. These are considerable investments and are clearly intended to support development of new and enhanced products to increase their share in the mobile, smartphone and tablet markets.
One of the developments that BlackBerry and industry insiders have been talking a lot about recently is the BlackBerry 10. This will be their latest mobile operating system development and advanced performance improvement is promised. However, the release date for this has been repeatedly delayed by RIM. The latest reported comments from RIM on this are that the first BlackBerry 10 handset will be released towards the end of this year and that the technology will also be available for their BlackBerry PlayBook tablets. If you are looking to invest in one of these Blackberry phones with the new technology, there will be a number of great mobile phone deals of different variations available.
This delay is frustrating for BlackBerry users eager to experience the upgraded technology. It is likely, given the issues experienced late last year, that RIM are being particularly stringent in ensuring that this new operating system does not disappoint on any level. Ultimately, this will be good news for BlackBerry users worldwide.
