Image of BlackBerry 10 leaked
Avid BlackBerry fans out there have probably been keeping their eyes on rumors surrounding the potential upcoming London device and BlackBerry 10. We’ve previously reported that this release is expected to occur sometime in September 2012.

CrackBerry has gotten their hands on a presentation slide that references ‘London’ with a list of features and most interestingly, a photo of a device running BlackBerry 10. The most notable aspect of this picture is that the phone depicted is very different looking than the previously leaked photo of the London.

The photo of the first prototype had angled edges and silver accents reminiscent of the BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981, whereas this device looks like the offspring of a PlayBook and a Droid X.

We’ll have to wait until we get a little closer to release to be sure about what RIM is cooking up with BlackBerry 10, but it is interesting to see the direction it is headed in for what some are predicting will be its last hurrah.

This reminds me of the Kindle Fire for some reason. This phone and the OS better be good or they are boned.

From a UI and OS standpoint.....we only see a music player app. So that really doesn't say much.

The design of the phone itself looks too narrow.

Coming from an Android and iOS guy, this is one attractive device and I hope they don't screw this up. Also I'm curious what Google will think of the ICS 4.0 like vibe of the OS as far as the music player goes from the image render of the device. I'm also looking forward for a third major OS weather it be Blackberry, Windows 7 or Open source Web OS. :)

I'd love to see BlackBerry succeed, but they need something drastic to restore faith in those lost BlackBerry lovers. If they can win those people back and get the word of mouth out that BlackBerry is improved...I think they could survive. Let's just hope that drastic change is in the works :)

Speaking as a strictly Android guy... That is one sweeeeeeeeet looking device! If the OS and engine under the hood are as Sexy and elegant as this bad boy looks, then RIM may be on to something. Btw... To all the BB haters, You guys have short memories. BB was on top once, and with those two knuckle heads out of the way, they have a great chance of being on top, or close to it again. Say what you will, BB is still the third Ecosystem in North America. Fourth worldwide.

Totally agree with you on these points. BB is definitely the 3rd ecosystem in the US and the fourth world wide, even though many choose not to admit it. Their respective places in the US and world wide is theirs to lose, and I don't see that happening. By the way, really sweet looking device!

Looks like the Optimus 3D/Thrill 4G from the front to me, instead of the 4 android keys, there's a blackberry logo.

I have a BB Bold 9700 and this is still the best phone as far as signal reception, voice quality and email management, not to mention almost absence of dropped calls. Then for the fun I have an iPod touch, basically the best of both worlds for an average user.
I don't mean to denigrate any other phone iOS or Android powered, they're fantastic devices but this is just my personal experience. For example when I've been next to other friends and colleagues phones with the same carrier my BB always had more bars and so a more stable communication, especially in places with not so good signal. Everybody values features in a different way based on its own needs and to me a phone has to work primarily as a phone, then everything else.
I hope that, if BB evolves in a modern fashionable phone, it'll always have available something like a Bold 9700 or 9900 for who prefers substance vs power or status symbol.

My question revolves around the difference of the two phones in the picture. The model laying on it's side looks like normal phone with regard to it's proportions, and the standing phone looks like a runway model (in a bad way), too tall and too skinny. The standing up phone looks like there is about an inch of dead space on top and bottom of the screen.

Agree with everyone here. Wonderful looking phone. Looking excitedly to see what it can do.

I have seen a picture of a slide out qwerty keyboard version that is due out about this time 2013. Hope it comes out earlier as my plan finishes October 2012. Tried the N9 for evaluation and have to say there is no way an onscreen keyboard is a patch on a physical qwerty keyboard. A stylus would be nice as its useful and makes for a more interactive experience. Must have 4G which is compulsory.

I'm waiting in anticipation for the next delay of this unicorn operating system.

Very sexy phone I think.. I'm just not sure how much mass appeal it will have being full touch screen. Maybe if it runs Andriod apps.

For me it's that when I think of Blackberry, I think of their awesome keyboards. I can't imagine a full touch BB in the corporate world, but then I suppose as the adoption of iPhones in companies it can work.

I'd love to see their implementation of the new OS on a BB with their keyboard.. for a corporate user that would be awesome!

Reading each line I was starting to buy into this being the catalyst for Blackberry's rise until I read "Quality Apps".

I was a Blackberry fanboy, and had they released this before I got my hands on iOS, then WP, and now Android, I would rock it.

Not now though. Not ever.
