BlackBerry 10 coming Jan 30th ---- will Cirrus audio be inside???
Audio over-haul: Two microphones are common, but having four with Noise Reduction is just a bonus. The over-haul is the Wideband AMR. Wideband Adaptive Multi-Rate uses a speech compression technique to increase the audio bandwidth to 7 kHz. This would roughly double the speech bandwidth compared to narrow-band AMR without impacting the radio and/or backhaul requirements.
That what I thought, however he said that when picking new customers as far as tablets went, they did good because some didn't sell enough to make it worthwhile. I would have to guess rimm sells plenty of playbooks for $149 and it's pretty good, best bang for buck in the market. Just getting a foot in the door at rimm is a positive that could lead to more.
