Research in Motion Ltd. will launch its new BlackBerry 10 operating system and two new devices on Jan. 30, 2013, the company said. RIM said in a release Monday it will launch the new devices and operating system at the same time in “multiple countries around the world.” It said details about the new smartphones and their availability will be announced at that time. "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,” Thorsten Heins, president and CEO of Waterloo, Ont.-based RIM, said in a statement. BB10 will offer a “large catalog” of apps in all categories and provide “seamless navigation across open applications,” the release said. The new BB10 devices will include new features such as the “BlackBerry Hub,” which links to all messages, notifications, feeds, and calendar events and may be accessed at any time “with a simple gesture,” the release said. Another, “BlackBerry Balance,” allows users to separate their access to personal and work apps and information. RIM again ranked No. 1 among Canadian companies' spending on research and development in 2011, according to an analysis by firm Research Infosource. The firm said in October that RIM spent $1.54 billion on research and development in the 2011 fiscal year, a 10.8 per cent rise from 2010, when it spent $1.39 billion and also ranked first. RIM ranked third in global smartphone shipments in the third quarter of 2012, research firm IDC said in October, behind Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co.
