BlackBerry 10, the next-generation operating system from Research In Motion (RIM) that has been delayed several times, now has a launch date set in stone: January 30, 2013.
Although availability of the new operating system is not guaranteed on that date, RIM said in a blog post that details of new smartphones would be announced at the launch event, to be held simultaneously in multiple locations around the world.
“In building BlackBerry 10, we set out to create a truly unique mobile computing experience that constantly adapts to your needs,” said Thorsten Heins, President and CEO of RIM, in a press release. “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.”
The OS will include a number of new or improved features:
The Washington Post reports that RIM will announce two smartphones at the launch event. The Wall Street Journal reports that one phone will have a full touchscreen while the other will have a physical keyboard. RIM has been using an all-touchscreen prototype handset, called the Dev Alpha B, to show off BlackBerry 10 features to the public so far. The Wall Street Journal said that when RIM delivered BlackBerry 10 phones to more than 50 carriers for testing, RIM stock went up 10 percent.
