RIM launches BlackBerry 10 OS and Z10

After many months of waiting and delays, today was finally the day. At a live event in New York and with satellite events around the world, Research in Motion today launched its new OS, BlackBerry 10, and the first handset that will run it, the BlackBerry Z10.
