RIM’s CEO Thorsten Heins is on stage now at BlackBerry World giving a demo of its upcoming operating system, BlackBerry 10.RIM is making a big bet that it’s new operating system, which is pretty much a smaller version of its PlayBook tablet’s software, will help turn the company around.

Developers attending this week’s conference will get an iPhone-like prototype running the latest software to help them build apps in time for the platforms official launch in a few months.

RIM gave a few publications the prototype. You can see it on TechCrunch, Engadget, and The Verge.
