RIM plans media event to officially launch BlackBerry 10 on January 30th, 2013

Amazing. Simply Amazing. RIM announced today that a press event is scheduled to launch their new BlackBerry 10 OS and two BlackBerry 10 devices on January 30th, 2013.

The release they noted that “This day will mark the official launch of its new platform – BlackBerry 10, as well as the unveiling of the first two BlackBerry 10 smartphones. Details on the smartphones and their availability will be announced at the event.”

It seems that on this Wednesday RIM will show off all features of the new OS, such as the camera, peek, BlackBerry Flow and BlackBerry Hub, and the BlackBerry Keyboard. It’s widely known now that RIM will unveil a full touch device that will have a screen resolution of 1280 x 768, and a QWERTY/touch device that will sport a display resolution of 720 x 720 – but no word on the official release date. However, the devices are currently in carrier testing and you can expect them to hit most Canadian carriers at launch.

Thorsten Heins, President and CEO of RIM, said “In building BlackBerry 10, we set out to create a truly unique mobile computing experience that constantly adapts to your needs. Our team has been working tirelessly to bring our customers innovative features combined with a best in class browser, a rich application ecosystem, and cutting-edge multimedia capabilities.
