Research In Motion said Monday that it will hold an official introduction event for its new BlackBerry 10 smartphones on Jan. 30. The new phones are seen as critical to RIM's survival.

The Waterloo, Ontario-based company said Monday details on the much-delayed smartphones and their availability will be announced at the event. The company is struggling in North America to hold onto customers who are abandoning BlackBerrys for flashier iPhones and Android phones.

RIM is hanging its hopes on the BlackBerry 10 software. It is thoroughly redesigned for the touchscreen, Internet browsing and apps experience that customers expect.
