After having a year filled with constant delays and poor earnings, RIM has finally made good on its promise that BlackBerry 10, its next-generation mobile operating system, will be launching in 2013.

In fact, it’s towards the very beginning of the new year, as RIM’s BB10 launch event will be held on January 30, 2013. In addition to the new OS will be two brand-new BlackBerry handsets.

Along with a self-praising quote from CEO Thorsten Heins, RIM writes in its press release that BlackBerry 10 will “offer a large catalog of the leading applications from across the globe and across all categories,” not to mention that it has “achieved FIPS 140-2 certification,” meaning that government agencies can use the OS right away without having to worry about or wait for security.

Come January 30, RIM hopes to once again be in the smartphone game – this time, with an operating system that is worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. If the flailing company can achieve that, however, is yet to be seen – and it’s got only a couple more months to do so.
