RIM to debut BlackBerry 10 OS at Mobile World Congress on just one phone?


Despite a dreadful 2011, RIM is still pushing forward in 2012, trying to keep its last customers in the BlackBerry ecosystem, as well as attract new ones with flashy hardware and software. 

We already know that BlackBerry 10 devices won't be coming until the latter half of 2012, but the company is ready to show off the operating system at MWC (Mobile World Congress) next month. Today, a RIM representative had this to say about RIM's involvement in Barcelona:

"2012 will be the year of BlackBerry 10 so we’ll be showcasing the capabilities of our future operating system as well demonstrating the power of BlackBerry 7, with a particular focus on NFC and BBM connected apps."

According to another report, BlackBerry 10 will launch on just one phone, and that would be the BlackBerry London that we reported on in November. The Milan, as well as the Colt, have been cancelled. While it might sound bad at first, I personally think it's a smart move by RIM, as it gives the company more time to focus on releasing one piece of killer hardware to (hopefully) put them in the smartphone limelight once again.
