Newest BlackBerry to be out in February

TORONTO — Research In Motion Ltd. plans to showcase the first two of its BlackBerry 10 smartphones on Jan. 30 and start selling the devices in February, moving forward with a critical step in its comeback bid.

‘‘We want to do it as quickly as possible,’’ chief operating officer Kristian Tear said in an interview following RIM’s announcement of the Jan. 30 date earlier in the day. Though the first phones won’t go on sale simultaneously worldwide, RIM is aiming for a release on multiple continents within 30 days of the unveiling, Tear said.
