RIM is promising that on release, BlackBerry 10 "will offer a large catalog of the leading applications from across the globe and across all categories, including Games, Productivity, Social, Lifestyle and Leisure, Multimedia and Published Content, as well as applications designed for business and enterprise use."

In an important milestone for its traditional government and enterprise customers, RIM announced earlier this month that BlackBerry 10 had been granted FIPS 140-2 security certification, allowing it to be used wherever FIPS is mandated. These markets will be able to buy and use BlackBerry 10 devices, and BlackBerry Enterprise Server 10, as soon as they're released. According to RIM, the first BlackBerry 10 phones are now being tested by over 50 carriers and "many more" are expected to start in the coming weeks.
