New leaked pictures of BlackBerry 10 N-Series surface
We have seen enough pictures of the Z10, and have been chomping at the bit to see and learn more about the QWERTY-equipped BlackBerry expected sometime next year. We have seen renderings, and we also saw a separate image of the hardware keyboard. Just a couple days ago, we were teased with a picture of the back of a device which was purportedly the N-Series. Now, we also get to see not only a close-up of the N-Series, but we also see it posing with another QWERTY-equipped BlackBerry device which we know nothing about. That white BlackBerry's keyboard is also straight, but has a key arrangement reminiscent of the Curve line-up. It is possible that it is also the Dev Alpha C development device, which was given to about 1,500 developers. It looks pretty nice for a development device though.
The main image of the N-Series is not too blurry, there is a bit of washout from the white lab glove cradling the device, but what can be clearly seen is the familiar BlackBerry keyboard layout, though it is oriented with straight rows of sculpted keys rather than the semi-ergonomic curved design seen on the Bold 9900 series. If you look closely, there is still a bezel around the edge so the keys are not flush to the side of the device. The screen is dark but seems to be living up to the 720x720 resolution that has been discussed before.

I really like the design of this phone for some strange reason.....I can't explain it....I just....like it.....I'm strange...-_-

I like the design too. The black color blending into the keyboard gives it a high-end look, plus the silver lines :)

I'm gonna have to see it in real life before judging it, but so far I'm pretty excited about Blackberry's N-series!

correct if i'm wrong but doesn't nokia already have an N-series why make names so similar

I doubt these will be the actual names, they're probably just 'code names'. Besides, nokia basically killed off the N-series

A 3.5'' screen with that qwerty would be perfect

Pheonix rises from the ashes!!! Countdown to BB 10!!! Im so ready for something other than iOS and Android. I think the only challenge will be the spec numbers. Android phones have rediculous specs(quad this and that). BB at least needs to come out with a dual core processor and 2Gs of ram. Throw in a good battery and SD slot and let the games begin!!!
