Blackberry 10 Event on January 30th 2013

Today Research In Motion (Now rebranded as Blackberry) took to the stage in New York City to launch their new Operating System.

The first device they announced was the Q10, it looks like a normal Blackberry Device but now with a larger screen to support the touch friendly OS. It has a Standard QWERTY keyboard and a screen with a resolution of 720×720. Blackberry did not announce any pricing or availability yet. In all honesty this device looks like a Blackberry Bold 9900 but with a taller touch screen.

The other device the Blackberry announced was the Z10. It looks exactly like the Dev Alpha units that  developers got at the last Blackberry event, in the past few months. Not much is known about this device either except for the it has a 4.2 inch screen with 356 PPI and the device will ship in Black or White. Pricing or availability was not given yet but there have been reports that it will ship within tih coming weeks.
Thorsten Heins, Blackberry’s President and CEO, took to the stage to tell how they aren’t going to be know as Research In Motion any more an that they are going to be rebranded as Blackberry, just Blackberry along with their new slogan “One Brand, One Promise“.

UPDATE: Blackberry also announced that Blackberry 10 Devices will be available in the U.K tomorrow and in Canada on February 3rd and in the US, sometime in March.
