Research In Motion CEO Thorsten Heins lobbied for the new BlackBerry 10 operating system in press interviews after RIM announced it would unveil BB 10 on Jan. 30. Heins touted the lack of a need for a "home" button on the new phones -- which will reportedly go on sale in February -- because of software that will not require users to switch between applications. Heins also said he expects the new devices to be wildly popular among governmental agencies. The new BB 10 platform will enable users to talk freely among each other via integrated Wi-Fi technology.
