Research in Motion has finally announced the release date for its new BlackBerry operating system. BlackBerry 10 will launch on January 30th, 2013, and on the same date RIM will unveil the first two phones running on the platform.

“This day will mark the official launch of its new platform – BlackBerry 10, as well as the unveiling of the first two BlackBerry 10 smartphones. Details on the smartphones and their availability will be announced at the event,” RIM said in an official press release.

The platform got the important FIPS 140-2 certification before launch which means that Government agencies, one of RIM’s biggest clients, will be able to use the new devices from day one.

BlackBerry 10 platform comes with BlackBerry Flow and BlackBerry Hub. Flow is the name of the new user interface, and the Hub is the notification aggregator picking up all your texts, emails, social messages, IMs, and so on.
