BlackBerry 10 backed by major UK networks

RIM is yet to reveal details of its forthcoming devices, but EE backing appears to confirm that a 4G BlackBerry will be available in Britain in the New Year.

The manufacturer is expected to lift the lid on two new phones, codenamed the L and N series, one being a touch-screen device and the other sporting RIM's trademark physical keyboard.

BlackBerry 10 is considered by many to be the struggling phone maker's last chance to remain profitable after a year of financial turmoil, sharp sales decline and reputation-damaging outages.

The company claims that 50 global carriers have pledged their support to its upcoming devices, and developer backing is said to be extensive.

The first BlackBerry 10 devices will be available in the UK from January 30.
