BlackBerry CEO John Chen has already said that most new BlackBerry phones will feature a QWERTY keyboard. And that brings us to a couple of leaked photographs showing us both sides of a QWERTY equipped BlackBerry handset. The odd looking device has brought forth some rumors. One is that the device pictured is nothing more than an early prototype of the BlackBerry Q5.
Another possibility is that this is a developer model for an upcoming high-end BlackBerry 10 device, possibly the Windermere. That model is supposedly one of the two high-end models we spoke about last December. Even if it is the Windermere, it almost certainly does not look like a final design.

UPDATE: We have some more information on the BlackBerry Windemere, which is apparently the device pictured. The keys can be pressed on, but numbers and other keys would be accessed using a swipe gesture. Because it is so wide, BlackBerry is thinking about allowing two apps to run side-by-side at the same time.
