BlackBerry 10 boot up screen leaked

BlackBerry 10 boot up screen leaked
We've seen tidbits of BlackBerry 10 here and there, enough to know that the OS will be different in many ways than say BlackBerry 7. But merely being different from the current BlackBerry OS is not going to cut it this time. BlackBerry 10 is going to have to have a few features that make you say, "Wow!" involuntarily. Merely matching Android will not do the trick for RIM. Not this time, not with so much at stake.

This is allegedly the boot up screen for BlackBerry 10

This is allegedly the boot up screen for BlackBerry 10

We happen to have a picture that allegedly shows the first "L" series model of BlackBerry 10 getting booted up. As you can tell by the percentage indicator on the screen, this is going to be a much different look than what you see booting up your BlackBerry 7 device. Not that you would want to see the boot up screen that often.

RIM is still on track to launch BlackBerry 10 in the first quarter of 2013. And everything needs to go smoothly without a repeat of the BlackBerry Storm 9530 launch debacle that saw huge number of Verizon customers buy the device thinking that it would approach the Apple iPhone in quality and functionality. Instead, the OS was half-baked out of the box, the accelerometer was balky and the browser was slow. The device did not support Wi-Fi and the SurePress QWERTY, which was designed to make the user feel that he was typing on real keyboard buttons, was a flop. But that was under the old regime. Thorsten Heins and crew knows that this is RIM's last shot at turning things around and remaining a relevant name in the smartphone world.

Let's just hope it doesn't take three hours for the OS to boot up.

if it does take 3 hours to boot up lets hope the phone has rediculouse battery life (rediculouse meaning good) or when the power is low it doesn't turn off fully but power down non esential operations such as 3g/4g antenna lite sencers basically only allowing you to use the phone as a phone.

RIM should just throw in the towel at this point. They've delayed BB10 too many times. They've lost a ton of market share.

I think this may be the first time I'm actually forced to agree with you.. RIM should be working on a revolutionary UI - not just something that resembles Android\iOS.

It doesn't matter what they do, it's not android so it'll fail no matter what.

lost yes...but never throw a towel!! have you seen the latest shipment 13 2012? RIM is the 3rd manufacturer next to apple and samsung is number 1... nokia cant be found on top 5! even im a nokia fan too! BB10 will be awesome and deal with it!! if you dont care about them, why bother comment? and it will have what people wanted and needed... apps are counting!! since BB10 is also the Playbook OS, apps wont be a problem...especially that android devs find developing apps for BB10 is easy! voice assistant is rumored as well, dual mode too, you can have both your work phone and personal phone in one! an there's more coming! if you dont have something good to say, better shut up!!!

BB10 looks promising but they have to get the basics right. Not only that butt app support and ecosystem integration with a full OS like Windows, Mac, etc will also play a key role.... and enough with the teasers, I hope it doesn't beome a case of too much hype about just release it already before people have spent their money on an android flagship, iphone or the newly launched WP models

I have come to relise that new comers are not favoured in this OS race. Google is making it hard for them to catch up. Android is so feature rich it makes other OSs efforts appear normal. The platform has been widely adapted,i believe soon pcs will start ranning on

actually no... BB10 is also feature-rich! its actually par to android's ecosystem coz of its ability to run android apps! so if people could just realize that, BB10 will be next to android! and devs dont need to re-write their apps for BB10, they just need to copy and paste it! and submit it to app world! just be positive and everything will be ok!

ikr?! yeah... even though a lot of people keep on saying that BB10 is "yay or nay" but i have faith in the platform! its very comparable to all OS right now! and people need choices! a very capable platform! very good answer to the need of people even though people keep on saying that "BlackBerry is DEAD" but i have faith! and positive thoughts that BB10 is incredible (even on alpha stage) thats why im really looking forward for this OS! and the hardware RIM's going to use!
