BlackBerry 10 screens leak showing off the new UI

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.

Looking good RIM. Roll this out before the summer. Fall will be too late for you.

That is the problem for RIM - Fall, 2012 will be too late. ICS will be out in force for the holiday shopping season. There probably will be another version of iOS as well.

Looks like a cross between iOS and WP7. Just if they would upgrade their hardware, screen size/resolution, processor, and RAM then they might be able to make some kind of comeback.

Looks pretty good. Now if they could stop taking a step forward and then stepping back in to what they're comfortable with... I love BlackBerry but I wish they would be innovative and give people what they WILL want instead of giving them what they want at the moment and putting it out too late!

Hard to get super excited by just a couple screen shots, but the potential is there. RIM has been pointing to this for two years, pushing three by the time it gets here. It has to be their best shot.

Hey, it's looking better... but I still think it's going to take more than that to compete with iOS and Android.

Finally something worth looking for from bb now how about that AT&T logo without 4g lte logo next to it. I know it's just a demo phone but if it's only hspa+ kiss ur business goodbye

omg stfu with the "too late" comments already, you people have been b*tching about that for the past year. even if it comes out very late this year, the os will be able to compete very well with the competition. Companies don't just make dumb decisions, they know what they're doing.

"Companies don't just make dumb decisions, they know what they're doing." Perhaps you should go long on RIM stock if you really believe what you are posting? What was the saying about a sucker born every minute and two to take him?

Looking forward to blackberry's comeback, but I hope they don't get rid of their famous keyboards for good. Touchscreen is nice, but at least keep the awesome physical keypads on some of their devices.

I thought OS 10 was only going to work on new hardware? This looks like the 9850 though.... I guess it's just a mock up of the design. I don't know how this would be formated for smaller screens, but whatever RIM does I support them.
