qwerty looks very much like the Bold 9900 how i hope they will change that the touch screen looks good ho i hope they will be using some premium materials to that! way to go BB we'll see i guess i have to wait for bb10 devices before getting a note II or Lumia 920 haha! too bad it feels like a lifetime before it came out Lol! haha

These leaks do nothing for your customers. RIM's loyal customers are leaving daily. What they need to leak is a release date.

RIM had a growth of 2 million subscribers the previous quarter, so how is RIM's base going down? Besides BB10 looks good.

The cutomer base you mention comes from Africa and South-east asian countries where RIM is still perceived as ahigh-end corporate device but even that's on the decline and that won't last for long if they can't get thier act together and release a date for their new device...better yet release a good device and fast!

RIM is done in the USA. Most consumers don't care about Blackberry 10. People who use blackberry for work are leaving for iphones by the thousands daily. Yahoo recently told there employees they could not use blackberries as there work phone. The corporate market in the USA has shifted to android and Apple. Those are facts.

He might be right. The last company I worked for, decommissioned their BB server, and my current one only accepts Android of iPhone!!!

I might get a BB10 device, looks like a great OS to try, the others are pretty boring + I loved my BB Playbook.

Those look like renderings rather than photos. Clearly device in the hand is not a real photo.

hmm... the large touchscreen one looks really generic, and the qwerty one it's plain ugly, too big and too squared screen... no, I don't like it.... but I'm sure a lot of people (specially crackberries) will love them.

I come from south africa, and here rim is quite a popular. Butt their app world only have like 50k apps against android and iphone that have over 500k. Its fastly getting boring for everybody, the only reason its so popular is because all the rim devices have unlimited data plans. So its free google all day long. But with almost no apps to download it doesn't have any use.

In an era of cyber hacking its good to know the BlackBerry O/S I use is still the most secure. Very impressed with what I've seen of new QNX/BB10 O/S system from BlackBerry conference which included developers. Also impressed with the look of the handsets though I would have liked to see one with a slide out Qwerty keyboard. Either way,seen enough to be more than convinced RIM is back as a credible force in its field. Can't. Wait. To see the specs on new BB10 handsets. Well done RIM.

im so looking forward with BB10 devices.. really love this looks of these devices!

but i got one concern, i really dont understand why RIM decided to make 1:1 ratio for BB10 QWERTY's.. isnt it odd to have it box? i think they should go for 4:3

but anyway it looks good!

I agree with 1:1 ratio, but they are gorgeous, my hands are itching to get qwerty one :)

I believe that the next range of devices and software released by RIM will be the best they have ever put out on the Market. They have to be as their CEO realises,hence the delayed release date. When they are released,I am convinced all those who have made these nasty,pathetic,bitchy comments will eat their words and even say how brilliant RIM are.
