As much as the financial markets hate it when products are delayed, they hate companies lying about delays even more.
There’s simply no way that the delay in BlackBerry 10 wasn’t known for months before RIM admitted it wouldn’t launch until 2013. I’ve worked on big software projects and delays aren’t something that just appear out of nowhere, they accumulate over time. So either Heins was lying or he was horribly misinformed by his own people. It doesn’t matter, unfortunately, since the outcome is the same.
