RIM's BlackBerry 10 launch event (live blog)
Coverage of the launch of BlackBerry 10.
1/30/2013 3:14:53 PM
So they've brought up a guy who refused to cut his hair until BlackBerry 10 launches. The guy says he's starting to like his long hair.
1/30/2013 3:15:07 PM
Ok, this hair thing with Crackberry Kevin is a little...odd.
1/30/2013 3:15:09 PM
Oh, they've brought out scissors -- I guess he's getting a little hair cut in front of everyone.
1/30/2013 3:15:23 PM
Ouch...that's a rough hair cut. But it generates a lot of applause.
1/30/2013 3:15:37 PM
Man, they are seriously running in circles here. Let the show begin!
1/30/2013 3:15:37 PM
Yes, there is hair cutting happening.
1/30/2013 3:15:45 PM
The announcer is wearing thin...ugh.
1/30/2013 3:15:50 PM
Okay, the wait is over. Woohoo!
1/30/2013 3:16:07 PM
CEO Thorsten Heins takes the stage to big applause.

The press, of course, is silent.

1/30/2013 3:16:30 PM
Anyone murmuring "Qualcomm" yet?
1/30/2013 3:16:31 PM
Good morning, good afternoon, good night, wherever you're celebrating the launch of BB10.
1/30/2013 3:16:41 PM
The man himself has taken the stage. Let the fun begin!
1/30/2013 3:16:45 PM
Yes, there are BB events everywhere, but you know the show is going to be based in NYC.
1/30/2013 3:17:31 PM
Heins: It's easily been the most challenging year in my career to date, but it's been, by far, the most exciting.
1/30/2013 3:17:32 PM
It feels like BlackBerry New Year's Eve.
1/30/2013 3:17:44 PM
Heins: Innovation is at the heart of RIM.

The opportunity he saw was BB10. Heins: Finally, here we are!
1/30/2013 3:18:00 PM
1/30/2013 3:18:26 PM
So many people have played a role to getting us to this date, he says. Thanks developers, carrier and retail partners, communities where we live and work. Most of all, it's been our employees.
1/30/2013 3:18:39 PM
Waiting for the confetti and ball to drop.
1/30/2013 3:18:45 PM
The people have been at their most committed, engaged, and creative. Heins wants to thank them for their accomplishments.
1/30/2013 3:18:57 PM
"BlackBerry 10 is here." Not quite yet.
1/30/2013 3:19:06 PM
Says this isn't the finishing line, it's the starting line. Yep.
1/30/2013 3:19:28 PM
BB10 users are hyper-connected, want to get things done, and are multi-taskers.
1/30/2013 3:20:06 PM
This is for people who consider multitasking a must-have, he says.
1/30/2013 3:20:07 PM
Oh don't say that Thorsten, makes me nervous about more delays.
1/30/2013 3:20:14 PM
BB10 will keep them moving, he says.
1/30/2013 3:20:16 PM

1/30/2013 3:20:29 PM
We intend to lead the move from mobile communications to true mobile computing.
1/30/2013 3:20:38 PM
Ugh, Apple and Google would argue they're already there.
1/30/2013 3:20:56 PM
Says you will be constantly connected to all info in real time.
1/30/2013 3:21:07 PM
With secure network, we will be a leader in connecting you to the Internet of things, he says.
