BlackBerry 10 screens leak showing off the new UI
We still have a relatively long time to wait before the new BlackBerry 10 devices hit the market, but that doesn't mean we can't have a treat of some leaked images of the new OS right now. The images come from CrackBerry which received a document leaked from an external ad agency partner of RIM's. The document apparently is an overview of BlackBerry 10 with suggestions on how to create marketing campaigns, and of course the images.
The images show various BB10 screens running on what appear to be BlackBerry Torch 9810 and 9860 phones. The homescreen looks fairly nice with the relatively standard set of 4x4 icons, as well as a folder which is designed much like an iOS folder with small previews of the apps inside. More interesting is the first look at BlackBerry's version of widgets, which appear to be vertically-oriented rectangles that all follow a similar design pattern with simple bits of info. We're pretty interested to see these widgets in a video (or in person of course).
Lastly, there are images of the Universal Inbox, although unlike the current BB combined inbox, it doesn't look as though this one includes SMS, just e-mail and BBM messages. There is also a nice call screen with a solid visual style to it.
We're looking forward to seeing more, but overall BlackBerry 10 isn't looking like anything revolutionary so far. It looks to be doing a fair job at catching up to the competition, but of course we can't pass judgement until we have the devices in our hands.
