Hold on to your keyboards, BlackBerry fans! Research In Motion announced this morning that they will hold a BlackBerry 10 launch event on Wednesday, January 30th, 2013. The event will take place “simultaneously in multiple countries around the world” according to RIM, though official venues and times were not announced.

The company says they will show off the first two BlackBerry 10 devices at the event, which are likely to be the recently leaked L-series touchscreen and N-series QWERTY devices. Launch information for the new phones will be discussed, though RIM has already stated that BlackBerry 10 will launch in the first quarter of 2013.

RIM will also show off a near-final version of their new BlackBerry 10 operating system at the event, which we already know will feature a new UI, innovative touch keyboard, navigation gestures, a universal Messaging hub, and home screen “live tiles”.
