'Truly unique mobile computing experience' will be unveiled globally after months of setbacks.
RIM has officially announced its much-hyped BlackBerry 10 OS – formerly known as BBX – will be launched in various countries around the globe on Wednesday, January 30th 2013, with demonstrations on two new smartphones.
It seems the firm may also be making a play for its core business audience, announcing BB10 has FIPS 140-2 certification for government agencies to deploy BB10 smartphones and BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 immediately.
The firm also highlighted that enterprise and business-centric apps are in production.
Thorsten Heins, president and CEO of RIM, 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."
