MISSING: The first BlackBerry device running Research In Motion Ltd.'s new operating software, BlackBerry 10, will not have a physical keyboard, only a touch-screen one.

THE SIGNIFICANCE: RIM's attempts in the past to offer touch-only phones have largely flopped. Many corporate users have stuck with the BlackBerry solely because of its physical keyboard.

ONE DAY: RIM says BlackBerry 10 will be offered on devices with physical keyboards in the future, but RIM declined to say when. RIM is expected to start selling BlackBerry 10 touch-screen devices this year.
