Pictures of the new BlackBerry X10, with a physical QWERTY, appear
Earlier Saturday, we showed you some pictures of what is by now widely believed to be the BlackBerry Z10. That model is an all-touch device that will rely on a virtual QWERTY keyboard. But there are many who would never give up the feeling of typing on a BlackBerry physical QWERTY and for them, the BlackBerry N-Series was devised. Well, at least it was called the N-Series. New information on Saturday shows that the BlackBerry 10 models with a physical QWERTY will be known as the BlackBerry X10. And we have three new pictures of the 'Berry X10. to show you tonight.

We can see that the lock screen on the phone has a link to the camera, and shows you the number of received messages as well as the number of upcoming events. The screen can show up to 8 applications at a time with the bottom of the panel becoming a launcher for the phone, search and camera. We've seen the same app icons before on photos of the BlackBerry Z10 device, so there aren't really any surprises.

The BlackBerry X10 is expected to launch after the BlackBerry Z10 is rolled out in the first quarter of 2013. While the latter is expected to have a 768 x 1280 resolution touchscreen, the resolution on the BlackBerry X10 is rumored to be 720 x 720 with an OLED display. Looking at the QWERTY itself, you can see it has the "frets" used on the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and BlackBerry Bold 9930. On the new handset, they run edge-to-edge. Earlier this month, an institutional brokerage house called Detwiler Fenton predicted a March launch for the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 models, and a June release for the BlackBerry X10 handsets.

I really hope it turns out to be a unique experience. It is time we consumers finally get a change from the usual android and iOS dominion.

Doesn't this look a lot like Android/iOS then? Still icon grids and most probably inconsistent app design.

I'm so excited about the blackberry 10 devices coming up. This is no exception. The front is so beautiful, but sadly the backside looks like a downgrade from their previous bold 9900. Left a bitter first impression on me, but we'll see if this design grows on me throughout time.

Fret not my dude as I bet that back is not the final design. It looks like a case! Look around the camera lens area.

BB10 FTW

Ironically, the keyboard is one of the few remaining strengths of BBs. Yet RIM decides to release a keyboard BB10 phone at the end of 2Q2013. There must be something in the water they are drinking at RIM headquarters.

Well I do hope "good things comes to those who wait" will ring true for RIM, if not well see them sold in pieces to the highest bidder. (I.E. Kodak)

I can't wait! I have a Pre 3 and will keep it and get this too. It's the closest operating system to webOS

I am hopeful for BB10, but you may want to wait to see it in action before you heap such high praise on it. Had HP not choked on a chicken bone, I never would have left WebOS either. I loved that OS. But I do not see a huge WebOS influence here. This seems to be a nice attempt to bring BB07, mate it to Android, and take the Live Tile idea of WP and give it some new functions. I like the looks of it and hope it performs well, but the true multi-tasking, fun UI of WebOS? Nah, not seeing that here.

I wonder how it would look in glossy white with a rubberized keyboard and back panel. Looks future-proof though.

Too much bezel on top. Use that for a bigger screen or cut it off. Its gonna be 2013. I want thin, little bezel, and big battery for any top notch phone.

These last few years have been a complete and utter mess for RIM, and I'm glad to see that they are finally getting on the same page as Android, iOS, and WP8. I just hope that this isn't their blaze of glory.
