After multiple delays pushed the highly anticipated launch of Research In Motion’s (RIMM) next-generation BlackBerry 10 platform back to 2013, the company on Monday finally set a firm launch date. In a post on the company’s official Inside BlackBerry blog, RIM’s Donny Halliwell announced that RIM will hold a launch event for BlackBerry 10 on January 30th, 2013. The related press conferences will take place in multiple countries simultaneously and specific launch dates for the first round of BlackBerry 10 smartphones will be announced during the event. A statement from RIM CEO Thorsten Heins follows below:

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.
