Research In Motion has announced that its official BlackBerry 10 launch date will be Wednesday 30th January 2013. This event will see the new BlackBerry 10 platform launched as well as RIM’s first two BlackBerry 10 smartphones, although the availability of these devices won’t be known until the launch.
Thorsten Heins, President and CEO of Research In Motion, 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. All of this will be integrated into a user experience - the BlackBerry Flow - that is unlike any smartphone on the market today. Thanks to our strong partnerships with global carriers and a growing ecosystem of developers, we believe our customers will have the best experience possible with BlackBerry 10. We are looking forward to getting BlackBerry 10 in the hands of our customers around the world.”
Some key features of BlackBerry 10 were revealed in September at the BlackBerry Jam developer conference.
