Press Release: BlackBerry 10 Launch Event Available Via Webcast on January 30th, 2013


You say that, but there is no way to know for sure. Safest bet is to have your lap top with you that day.

Was wondering about this earlier today too. Going to be so close to it happening Live, too bad I couldn't be there.

I know... Just read it and am so excited that they have finally included India & Indonesia, two markets where BB rocks, in the launch. I hope they give out realease dates (which I hope is a not more than day or two) and prices (which aren't sky high) for hese markets are as well.

I had been posing this question all last month and now the answer is finally here. I felt worse for Indonesia since BB is #1 there.
Currently there are no details as to where the event will be. I have a feeling it is going to be more of a closed door corporate event.

I really hope it's not via youtube though, I hope it's done through another type of online streaming service because I'm blocked from youtube at the office

My office blocks youtube too. I was thinking of just bringing in my PlayBook and bridging it to my BlackBerry. But I have a meeting scheduled at 10a.m. I hope those attending the meeting don't mind the PlayBook and earphones :D

The BB Jam Americas steam wasn't done through YouTube and it worked fine. My guess is that it will be the same.

I'm sure RIM will have it recorded also for later viewing or for sending out all over the internet millions of times. ;)

Well, I was going to be sleeping most of the day because I have a night shift that night. Looks like I'll be waking up at 10am :) So excited, can't wait!

There goes my productivity Wednesday morning! (who am I kidding, I wouldn't be productive even if it wasn't webcast -- I would have been glued to CrackBerry)

I'm going to miss it too due to my real question is whether or not to check crackberry during the day when I can or just ignore it completely until I get out to watch the stream if it is recorded.

it is truly global now with the addition of Delhi and Jakarta! I am very glad to see that. Looking forward to seeing the launch.

Woohoo - 7 AM PST time (HAHA I used an app to convert EST to PST.)

I can watch it in full before I have to work. :)

Looks like my 7:30am start time for work will be 7am on Wednesday. Going to fire this up as I get in the office, sit back with a cup of tea and bask in the 10's radiance.

Too bad I have 4 months left before I can upgrade.

Two more sleeps!!

So freaking pumped like most BB fans. I think my brain is going to explode. Well, maybe not. I'm also looking forward to media reaction after the launch event.

Hmm i know rim has business clients on the east coast but this might be a bad thing if the people who wont be up at 7 pacific time will only hear about this event through the media reports and the web. Most of them might just bring up rims downside ie skype instagram whatsapp possibly being absent. Since rims target is ios and android clients they should have maybe taken some focus away from the business clientele.

I put in a vacation day for the 30th,can't wait!!!!!!!! And I will be buying two,hope they go on sale on the same day.

Here's our time to shine folks! Send the link out to all your friends , FaceBook, Twitter, email, blogs etc. We will shake up the landscape Wed! Woot Woot

Will be watching for excited :) I called Rogers today to see if they had the BB10 in stock to upgrade but they didn't have any info yet....seems strange or they haven't got them yet.....

Kevin!!!....Please record the launch or link it to somewhere where us poor unfortunates who can't watch it live can watch it later?!?!?!. This launch is just too big a deal and all of us that want to see it should be able to

GOD I'm so pumped I'm ready to jump out of my skin!!!


Who needs sleep?! 7am Wednesday morning I'll be sitting with a fully charged PlayBook with headphones tuned in to the rebirth of RIM. NOW, to really ice the cake that day would be to hear that all major US carriers, including Sprint, will have the two new phones, Z10 and X10, available that day. Because if going by the leaked Vodafone doc and responses from various carrier reps. The western United States would have BB10 units available as of 10am. But that's just how it would play out in my perfect world. Lol!

Proud member of the BlackBerry community. 9670 Style and PlayBook owner.

I WILL be watching!!!!!!!!!!
The culmination of 18 months of watching and waiting and listening and hoping and praying!
After I pick up my Zed10 I'm gonna have my best nights sleep in years (probably in my recliner as I pass out with my Zed clutched in my hand )!


Any idea WHERE we can buy the BB10? Like my die hard Apple friends, I am ready to stand in line at 12:01am to get my new BB!!!

I will say, this is the LAST SHOT I will give RIM. If this is junk, I am done with them and T-Mobile. My first BB was the 7105t as I remember, I have always stayed true to BB. But the ridicule of still be a BB fan is almost to much!!! :)

Keep me believing RIM!!! :)

1 day, 12 hours, 43 minutes... and counting down... the wait is agonizing... more so because India will not get to see them in retails stores soon... What a damper.

If you're referring to Sunil Dutt's announcement that BB10 d devices will be available 2-3 weeks post launch, get ready to be surprised tomorrow night (IST).

i have wednesday off so this will be a great morning to watch the live broadcast. A friend of mine is joing me...yup totally Geeky i know! Just gotta figure out the best way to stream it to my tv so i can enjoy it from the comfort of my sofa..i'm guessing apple tv.

may i know what is the exact time for viewer in Malaysia ? the time zone is GMT +8 if i'm not mistaken and i have no idea what is ET LOL.

So pumped! Must see tv for sure. I put in for vacation on this day a while ago; can't believe its here - should have been declared a national holiday in Canada, eh? =) Have a great launch everybody =D

Going to be glued to my desktop at work. Currently making appointments into my calendar so that I do not get disturbed. Especially excited that my work place is going to move forward with BB10!

I was invited to the event that's being held in Dubai but I couldn't attend due to final exams. Thank god there is a webcast for the launch!

i actually cleared my schedule and am reporting to work late so i watch at home! gonna hdmi it out to the big screen from my playbook ... seems fitting!

Just to let the people in Washington State and Vancouver know we do not need an app to tell us your 3 hours behind. We are on the same continent as you. But good to see the new toys coming out.

I'm not sure if I'll be able to even watch it, or go to the event pending it's free AND also.. not too packed. MOney is low for the months ending and I haven't even got work yet! :(
This is driving me nuts, NUTS!! >:O
