RIM has set January 30th, 2013 as the official day they’ll unveil their new BlackBerry 10 OS, plus show off two new BlackBerry 10 smartphones – an all-touch and a Touch/QWERTY. If you’re eager to secure your place in line for the historic all-touch handset you can go forth today and reserve yours via Rogers with their online reservation system. A note was sent to us that stated:
“Rogers was the first carrier in Canada to launch BlackBerry and first in Canada to launch an LTE Network so we’re thrilled to let you know that as of today, Rogers customers can be amongst the first in the world to reserve the BlackBerry 10 all-touch device online at www.rogers.com/reserve. Full details about BlackBerry 10 including, pricing, availability and specifications, will be announced in early 2013. For more information, visit: www.blackberry.com/BlackBerry10.”
RIM has been scarce on the details of the all-touch BlackBerry 10. They’ve shown off some of the features such as the BlackBerry Hub, Peek, Time Shift and the BlackBerry Keyboard. All that’s officially known of the specs are that it’ll be LTE-enabled, have a textured backing, curved corners and that the camera will capture full HD video. In addition, the display will have a resolution of 1280 x 768.
