After several delays, many have doubted if Research in Motion will really release their Blackberry 10 platform. But all doubts will finally end after the company announced the launch date of their new platform that aims to regain their pace after being overshadowed by other smartphones and android devices.
In a blog post, RIM announced that they will unveil their first two BB 10 smartphones on January 30 and will give more details about the features of the new platform and the availability of the first two devices in that said event. It is unclear where the event will take place, but RIM said that the launch event will be held in multiple countries simultaneously.
In that said blog post, RIM President and CEO Thorsten Heins 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,” Heins added.
According to previous reports and leaked images, RIM will release two editions of the Blackberry 10-powered devices called the L-Series, which is the all-touch edition of the smartphone, and the QWERTY-based smartphones that will be dubbed as the N-Series.
Verizon recently announced that they are planning to release one of the two new devices from RIM, but it is still unclear if they are talking about the two new devices that will be unveiled on the 30th of January.
