RIM starts glitzy BlackBerry 10 launch parties
NEW YORK Jan 29 (Reuters) - Research In Motion Ltd on Wednesday kicked off a string of global launch parties for a long-delayed line of smartphones it says will put it on the comeback trail in a market it once dominated.
The new BlackBerry 10 phones will compete with Apple's iPhone and devices using Google's Android technology, both of which have soared above the BlackBerry in a competitive market.
They boast fast browsers, new features, smart cameras and, unlike previous BlackBerry models, enter the market primed with a large app library.
