RIM faces its day of reckoning with BlackBerry 10 launch

The innovative line of BlackBerry smartphones that Research In Motion will formally unveil later today has already succeeded on one crucial count - getting BlackBerry smartphones back in the conversation. 

The new BlackBerry 10 has created a buzz among technology watchers and financial analysts, thanks to nifty features that may set it apart in an overcrowded smartphone market. 

Reviewers like the browser speed and the intuitive keyboard on BlackBerry's new touchscreen. 

A feature called BlackBerry Balance, which keeps corporate and personal data separate, could help BlackBerry rebuild its traditional base of big business customers.
