RIM TO UNVEIL BLACKBERRY 10 IN JANUARY: Research In Motion has announced plans to showcase the first two of its BlackBerry 10 smartphones on January 30, with sales of the devices scheduled to commence in February, Bloomberg has reported. The rollout will finally get the BlackBerry 10 into consumers' hands after multiple product delays put the phones a year behind schedule. "We want to do it as quickly as possible," chief operating officer Kristian Tear said. Though the first phones won't go on sale simultaneously worldwide, RIM is aiming for a release on multiple continents within 30 days of the unveiling, Tear said.

The company, which is 80 percent owned by the state, has been relying on its data business to boost revenue.
