RIM has unveiled its new BlackBerry Z10 smartphone and BlackBerry 10 mobile operating system at a launch event held simultaneously across four continents; New York, Toronto, London, Paris, Dubai, Johannesburg, Jakarta and Delhi – and we’ve got some of the first photos to prove it.

The look and shape of the device matches up with all of the leaked images and videos that have preceded the device’s launch, with a black, two-tone design on the front similar to the iPhone and a textured back with that all-important RIM logo. It also has the rumored 4.2-inch display at 356PPI (pixels per inch).

You can read more details about the device in our dedicated breakdown of both the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10.
