RIM Promises Seven New BlackBerries This Year

RIM announced at a shareholder’s meeting that they would release seven new models this year including the Bold 9900, the 9860 and 9850. We could also expect a new Curve and a new (shudder) Torch. We can also expect a 4G PlayBook by the fall.

RIM also admitted to failing to sell the PlayBook correctly at retail and admitted that it was their first “retail” product on the shelves and, as such, did not have the might of carriers behind it.

According to IntoMobile, RIM president Jim Balsillie closed the session by saying “If there’s anything I can do to make you sleep better at night, I’ll do it.”

Good on ya, Jim.
