BlackBerry 10 Launch Event Scheduled for January 30th, 2013

By November 12th, 2012 AT 6:38 PM

Blackberry smartphone maker Research In Motion (RIM) today announced that it plans to hold a BlackBerry 10 launch event on January 30th, 2013.

Thorsten Heins, President and CEO of Research In Motion said “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.”

BlackBerry 10 will offer a large catalog of the leading applications from across the globe and across all categories, including Games, Productivity, Social, Lifestyle and Leisure, Multimedia and Published Content, as well as applications designed for business and enterprise use.

The BlackBerry 10 platform has recently achieved FIPS 140-2 certification, which means that government agencies will be able to deploy BlackBerry 10 smartphones and BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 as soon as it is available. This marks the first time BlackBerry products have been certified ahead of their launch. In addition, RIM recently announced that BlackBerry 10 smartphones have now entered more than 50 carrier labs with many more entries expected in the coming weeks. 

Some key features of the new BlackBerry 10 devices already unveiled / showcased recently include:

BlackBerry Flow and BlackBerry Hub :

BlackBerry Flow is a new user experience that allows seamless navigation across open applications and the BlackBerry® Hub. All messages, notifications, feeds, and calendar events come into the BlackBerry Hub and no matter what the user is doing with the device, with a simple gesture, they can peek into the Hub at any time.

BlackBerry 10 Keyboard :

The BlackBerry Keyboard learns how you write and adapts to how you type so you can write faster and more accurately, giving you the kind of legendary typing experience that only BlackBerry can deliver.

BlackBerry Balance :

BlackBerry Balance offers the most elegant way to satisfy both customer and corporate needs without compromising on either. With BlackBerry Balance, personal apps and information are kept separate from work data, and the customer can switch from their personal to work profile with a simple gesture. The work profile is fully encrypted and secure, enabling organizations to protect their content and applications, while at the same time letting customers get the most out of their smartphone for their personal use.

drkavint : wish it has the best hardware too… there is a huge space between samsung and iphone.. two leaders widely separated each has unique hardware and software,atpresent scenario microsoft is only trying to fill the gaps.. blackberry has potential to do by offering quality stuffs in low rates.. sure to lead as winner in just a year if it does so… blackberry remember the story where two cats fight for cake and monkey eats away saying it is helping them to divide cake equally.. we expect good tab with super amoled screen, quadcore, 2gb ram, sim facility, direct usb… Read more »


I feel that Blackberry will bounce back with BB10… They have put up real hard work in last one year or so. I really appreciate the way in which its new CEO Thorsten Heins has handled the sinking company till the launch of BB10. Lets give them fair chance to survive… looking to the promos, one thing is clear, BB10 seems to be original OS. They might have picked up features but haven’t blindly copied iOS or Androind. As far as hardware is concerned, only apple can be better than Blackberry, no one else…
