BlackBerry 10 is now being tested by over 50 carriers, Research In Motion (RIMM +4.7%) CEO Thorsten Heins disclosed in an e-mailed statement. That puts RIM on track to launch BB10 devices in early Q1 - Jefferies claimed earlier this month the first devices won't arrive until March. Either way, the OS faces an uphill battle in light of Android and iOS' hegemony in developed markets, and it will get tougher if Windows Phone 8 fares well this holiday season.

  • Carrier approval is one step, though carriers could delay devices and launch when they want. Hopefully RIMM does not grant AT&T any exclusives, or it might kill the first round of sales.

  • Blackberry remains the only system (at least compared to Android and Apple) that allows deletion of Email from Handheld but NOT from server. This is a big advantage that is rarely addressed. I assume BB10 will still have that capacity.

  • Short Squeeze is in affect! Rimm continues to deliver positive stories verse the persistent negativity which makes for a great squeeze.
