BlackBerry 10 launch event set for January 30th

Time to mark your calendars, folks – RIM has finally set the date for BB10's long overdue launch

RIM has just sent us an email confirming that the long-awaited BlackBerry 10 launch event will take place on January 30th across multiple countries simultaneously.

The date will mark BB10's official launch, as well as the official unveiling of the first two devices to run RIM's new BlackBerry 10 OS. We're expecting two devices on launch day - the all-touchscreen BlackBerry London and a second more traditional keypad/touchscreen hybrid.

We were rather taken with our initial and secondary hands on impressions of the BlackBerry 10 OS and we look forward to some quality time with the official handsets early next year.

Does RIM have what it takes to stand shoulder to shoulder with the might of Apple, Google and Windows Phone 8 in the smartphone arena? Watch this space to find out...
