BlackBerry A10 renders reveal  removable back cover and side-loaded SIM slot
"Help" diagrams for the BlackBerry A10 Aristo have been leaked and the renders reveal that the left side of the device will feature a side-loaded SIM slot as well as hosting both the micro USB port and the HDMI-out port. Another diagram shows a removable back cover for the BlackBerry A10.That might not seem like a big deal, but many of today's flagship models seal in the cell. Even models that you would consider mid-range, like the Motorola DROID series, don't let you see the battery without using a special key to open the back.

Just because there is a removable battery door doesn't necessarily mean that the battery itself can be swapped. Especially since the 2800 mAh battery rumored to be powering the 5 inch 'Berry is supposedly going to be non-removable.

We've seen a series of leaks showing the back of the phone, the front of the phone and a video showing the device in action. As responsive as the UI looks, the A10 does not offer flagship-type specs. The resolution on the 5 inch screen is expected to be offer a resolution of 720 x 1280 with a dual-core processor and an 8MP rear-facing camera. The latest buzz around the water cooler is that the Canadian OEM is having problems squeezing enough battery life out of an FHD resolution.
