Research In Motion Ltd. said the BlackBerry 10, the new smartphone lineup intended to revive its fortunes, is about to begin testing at more than 120 U.S. companies, including 64 members of the Fortune 500.
Sprint Nextel Corp. , the third- largest U.S. wireless carrier, will announce it is adding a Kyocera Corp. smartphone to its lineup at an event in New York today, said a person familiar with the companies’ plans.
AT&T Inc. , facing the eventual loss of its U.S. monopoly for the iPhone, debuted a new BlackBerry from Research In Motion Ltd. that will expand the carrier’s lineup of smartphones beyond Apple Inc.’s device.
Nokia Oyj and Microsoft Corp., both looking to increase U.S. sales of smartphones, stand to get a much-needed boost as Samsung Electronics Co. products face a possible ban and handset makers come under pressure to consider alternatives to Google Inc.’s Android software.
Nokia Oyj , the world’s biggest maker of mobile phones, will postpone the first shipments of the E7 smartphone until early next year, after missing an earlier deadline for handsets using the Symbian operating system.
