Research In Motion will unveil its much anticipated BlackBerry 10 devices on January 30th at a series of worldwide events, including ones in Toronto and New York. But it’s not quite as clear when these devices will actually go on sale. RIM has remained tight-lipped about those details so far. A leaked Best Buy Canada inventory system screenshot now has given us our first clue:

Best Buy inventory system reveals BlackBerry 10 device launch date?

The image suggests that the Bell version of the BlackBerry 10 smartphone will launch on February 28th. Two things are likely: This will be the all-touch device (the BlackBerry Z10?) and other carrier launches will happen at the same time.

Needless to say, RIM had no comment when asked about the dates: “We understand that there is a lot of excitement for BlackBerry 10. We will launch the platform on January 30th and until then we won’t comment on speculation.”

RIM has previously indicated that pricing and availability details will be announced when it unveils its new devices.

More pictures of Research In Motion’s all-touch BlackBerry 10 smartphone have surfaced. The device, which could be known as the BlackBerry Z10, is shown next to an Apple iPhone 4S (for a size comparison). For the first time, we see carrier branding on a BlackBerry 10 device. The device on the lft sports a Verizon logo on the top left.

BusinessInsider‘s source also provided a number of first impressions after testing both AT&T and Verizon variants:

  • The build quality is really nice. The back cover feels rubbery and snaps on sort of like the back cover on Samsung’s Galaxy S III.
  • The screen looks great.
  • The web browser is very quick, just as fast as a desktop browser. It also supports Flash.
  • You can set up separate profiles for work and personal use. This is good for people who want to use one phone for business and play.
  • The new AppWorld store looks a lot like the Google Play store for Android apps.
  • It only takes one minute to boot up.

Research In Motion will unveil BlackBerry 10 and its first BlackBerry 10 devices in less than a month now at a series of worldwide events.

It appears that the upcoming RIM BlackBerry X10, the first BlackBerry 10 device to come with a physical QWERTY keyboard, has lost its aversion to the camera. Its all-touch BlackBerry Z10 sibling is now having to share the limelight more often as more leaked pictures have surfaced. The latest come courtesy of an N4BB anonymous source:

While these latest pictures reveal nothing we have not seen before, they do show the BlackBerry X10 running the upcoming BlackBerry 10 whereas previous pictures have only shown us a black screen. They are also clearer than what we have seen before.

RIM will unveil the BlackBerry X10 and BlackBerry Z10 (assuming that these are the official names) on January 30th, 2013 at a number of worldwide launch events.
