Last week while announcing its Q1 2013 results, RIM CEO Thorsten Heins talked “briefly” about why there is a delay in BlackBerry 10 launch, and why the phone moved to first quarter 2013. Heins revealed that the first QWERTY BlackBerry 10 phone will arrive in “close proximity” to its touchscreen-only counterpart. Now, BlackBerryOS is posting what appears to be a leaked product roadmap indicating the first BB10 devices in early 2013, Nashville and Naples later in the year. The roadmap further includes:

  • 4G PlayBook – Q4, 2012
  • BlackBerry 10 London/Nevada – Q1, 2013 – Europe launch before N. America
  • BlackBerry 10 Upgrade for PlayBook – Q1/Q2, 2013
  • BlackBerry device codenamed “Nashville” – Q2/Q3, 2013
  • BlackBerry 10 inch PlayBook “Blackforest” – Q3, 2013
  • BlackBerry device codenamed “Naples” – Q3/Q4, 2013
