BlackBerry R10 leaks out in red

The BlackBerry R10 is a yet unannounced device that is expected to become the third member of the BlackBerry 10 family, coming after the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10. The device has already leaked out in images, but it’s the first time we actually get to see a red R10 and it looks gorgeous.

"Scheduled Q3, but it's a mid tier... Plastic and all.. Nice though" was the leakster’s comment on the BlackBerry R10.

This definitely seems like a device BlackBerry will launch to widen its outreach to a maximum number of people, especially those who cannot afford the high-end Q10 and still want that BlackBerry full QWERTY experience.

Also in the background to the picture, you can once again see the white R10. Not looking bad, are they?

it dont look ugly at all!! i love it but of course what can you espect for a mid ranger? s4 look like a mid ranger with all that plastic built! if its going to be a flagship, they should at least dress it with premiumness like other manufacturers do (sony, htc, apple and nokia their flagships looks and a worthy flagship by just looking at it) s4 look like a midranger coz its looks and built quality are similar to those chinese devices!

Yes, the R10 is ugly, plastic all around. But this is a low-end phone! So, you want a low-end phone with unibody design? (sigh) =_=' This is for the peoples who can't afford a Q10 and needs a low price QWERTY keyboard phone! REMEMBER, THIS IS A LOW-END PHONE!

I'm still kind of blown away that more companies haven't just taken AOSP Android and built upon it with a different UI. It would have brought along an easier App porting experience, and instant relevancy. Right now if they had made a Blackberry 10 OS built on AOSP they would at least be a viable option because you could side load any APKs that aren't available on the BlackBerry App market. Same with Open webOS, they should have just thrown away the underlying OS and concentrated on making a UI built on Android. Then HP could have still gone after Android phones and tablets, but still appealed to the die hard webOS fanboys. Imagine BlackBerry 10, or webOS with the Play Store...AWESOME.

The word you are looking for is "their.'' Maybe you should educate yourself first before worrying about others.

It kinda has a Nokia look to it. As long as the build quality and performance is better than previous Curves (it's spiritual ancestor) and the price is right, this phone ought to do very well, especially in Europe.
