Wake Up

Research in Motion on Tuesday unveiled prototypes of the new BlackBerry 10 phone and operating system that the company hopes will be its salvation, in a form that looked quite rough around the edges. Among the features missing on the test phones given to software developers was the ability to actually make phone calls or access wireless networks.

If you’re a developer and you’d like to write an app that passes information over the internet, you can’t test it on a device with BlackBerry 10. Via John Moltz, who writes:

You can make your own joke about RIM spending their money on telling iPhone owners to “wake up”. Or you can just wait for it to write itself. That’s what I do.
