BlackBerry 10 Global Launch Invites Go Out

2012 is nearly over, and its departure will signal the end of RIM’s year of doing… well… nothing much interesting. While we didn’t see any existing new hardware released commercially, RIM’s been busy behind the scenes working to finalize the release of BlackBerry 10 and its associated hardware. Last month, the company revealed plans for a January 30 launch event, and as that date nears, RIM has begun distributing invitations, revealing the global nature of the launch.

The big BlackBerry 10 US launch will take place in New York City on January 30, but that’s only one component of RIM’s plans. Cities all around the world will join in with their own BB10 launch events, including London, Paris, Dubai, Johannesburg, and since this is RIM, after all, Canada makes the cut as well, with a Toronto event.

There’s a ton on the line here, so we’re understandably excited to see how BlackBerry 10 is received, as well as get the details on just when the first hardware will go up for sale.
