BlackBerry 10 is likely to become the most sought after smartphone in the initial part of 2013.

“In building BlackBerry 10, we set out to create a truly unique mobile computing experience that constantly adapts to your needs. Our team has been working tirelessly to bring our customers innovative features combined with a best in class browser, a rich application ecosystem, and cutting-edge multimedia capabilities. All of this will be integrated into a user experience – the BlackBerry Flow – that is unlike any smartphone on the market today,” said Thorsten Heins, president and CEO of Research In Motion.

BlackBerry 10 will offer a large catalog of applications from across the globe and across all categories, including Games, Productivity, Social, Lifestyle and Leisure, Multimedia and Published Content, as well as applications designed for business and enterprise use.

Recently, the BlackBerry 10 platform has achieved FIPS 140-2 certification. Government agencies will be able to deploy BlackBerry 10 smartphones and BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10. This marks the first time BlackBerry products have been certified ahead of their launch.

RIM also recently announced that BlackBerry 10 smartphones have now entered more than 50 carrier labs with many more entries expected in the coming weeks.
