First BlackBerry 10 Phones Set For February 2013 Launch

RIM has said that it plans to release the first BlackBerry 10 smartphones shortly after the operating system's January 30, 2013 launch.

While Research in Motion doesn't expect the handsets to release through various carriers simultaneously, the launches should occur within 30 days of the aforementioned date, so says the firm's Chief Operating Officer Kristian Tear.

The struggling company recently announced the release date for its forthcoming mobile operating system, with January 30 also due to see the unveiling of two BlackBerry 10 smartphones.

While official details have been scarce in regards to the devices powered by the platform, leaks have outed several BlackBerry 10 phones such as "Liverpool" and "London", as well as the high-powered Aristo.

BlackBerry 10 is currently being tested by over 50 carriers around the globe. The U.S. government also approved the OS for secure use in the region.

    Haven't seen a blackberry in quite a while. I wonder how far they've come since their little trackball phones.
