New BlackBerry set for launch today

News comes just hours after RIM confirms it's laying off 2,000 staff.

RIM appears set to release an all-new BlackBerry today, using its official Facebook page to talk up a phone that’s “social all over” and promising to unveil the details imminently.

In a somewhat cloying update, posted late last night, the BlackBerry maker said, “Hey Team BlackBerry, what's shiny, new and social all over? We want to tell you all about it. Can you guess what it might be? Tune in tomorrow for details!”

The chances are this will be the BlackBerry Torch 2, or the much-touted BlackBerry Touch. The company’s joint CEOs have both said previously that exciting new phones would be outed over the summer.

Whatever the phone is, it’ll have to be very special to save RIM. The company has only just laid off 2,000 staff and posted appalling results for the previous quarter. What do you think this new BlackBerry will be? Tell us now over on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
