Twitter index: Blackberry 10 release dates announced, Lakers hire D’Antoni

RIM has just announced that the release date for its Blackberry 10 handsets, and Blackberry 10 platform, will take place on January 30, 2013. The event, which will occur simultaneously in several countries around the world, will feature two new Blackberry 10 smartphones as well as the new Blackberry 10 operating system. Currently further details of the event, including the specific countries, are not known.

Also causing a stir on Twitter Monday is the decision by basketball team LA Lakers to hire former New York Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni  on a four-year deal rumored to be worth around $12 million. The hiring of D'Antoni was seen as a surprise move by many professional commentators on the sport as the majority expected the Lakers to re-sign Phil Jackson who won five NBA titles with the Lakers from 2000-2010.
