Concept design for BlackBerry 10 model shows Bold-esque QWERTY keyboard
Earlier this year, we showed you a concept design for the first BlackBerry 10 handset. The device, which is expected to launch before the end of the year, is the subject of another design concept, this one in white. Some of the features that we can see is a Bold-esque physical QWERTY keyboard which makes sense since the keyboard on the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 is universally considered one of the best QWERTY keyboards to be attached to a smartphone.

The bottom of the phone is tapered in a little to make the device easier to hold and the handset is thin keeping with the recent trend toward skinny smartphones. The designer of the phone, John Anastasiadis, says that the concept is realistic in that it could be released right now. The latest speculation has the first BlackBerry 10 model being the BlackBerry Colt 2. While a BB10 model with a physical QWERTY is being developed, according to RIM CEO Thurston Heins, the first model is expected to feature only a virtual QWERTY keyboard.source: Crackberry
