RIM plans to unveil BlackBerry 10 and two smartphones Jan. 30

John Cox | Nov. 14, 2012
Research in Motion will officially launch its new mobile operating system, BlackBerry 10, on Jan. 30, along with the first two RIM-designed smartphones to run it, the company announced today. The company has bet its future on the platform's success.

In an important milestone for its traditional government and enterprise customers, RIM announced earlier this month that BlackBerry 10 had been granted FIPS 140-2 security certification, allowing it to be used wherever FIPS is mandated. These markets will be able to buy and use BlackBerry 10 devices, and BlackBerry Enterprise Server 10, as soon as they're released. According to RIM, the first BlackBerry 10 phones are now being tested by over 50 carriers and "many more" are expected to start in the coming weeks.
