L-Series BlackBerry 10 smiles for the camera again

L-Series BlackBerry 10 smiles for the camera again
BlackBerry 10 is finally ready to land with a big announcement at the end of January, and the first two BlackBerry 10 devices are coming in February 2013, but you don’t have to wait until then to see one of them.

The BlackBerry 10 L-series phone is probably the worst kept secret in the industry leaking so many times it’s almost embarrassing if it was not intentional. The L series is an all-touch device, as opposed to the other ‘Berry that RIM is releasing with a full physical QWERTY keyboard.

In this latest appearance, the L series phone is pictured next to a Bold, and you get to see the new BlackBerry Hub incorporating all your social messaging, texts and just about all exchanges in a single center. You can also get a peek at the new lockscreen. Check it all out right below, and let us know: do you think BlackBerry 10 stands a chance against iOS, Android and the rest?

I was thinking a stretched iP5 with the all black treatment. Anyhows, I hope RIM has a winner, although missing out on the 2012 holiday shopping season can't be helping them.

I think they need to change the design. Agreed with your statement mate. I think they should learn something from HTC, Sony, Oppo and Sammy for the design. BB bring end to end display :)

BB equals qwerty hardware.... BB10 nothing new, plain old boring design

This phone is beautiful, BUT the top and bottom bezels, and maybe the side bezels too, seems to large. Although they may be using a hard case to hide the actual phone design until it is public announced. I like the overall design.

I like Blackberry but this phone in particular looks too big for the screen, so much space wasted there. I have the feeling it won't be a big hit.

BB is really shooting themselves in the foot by delaying this phone, I wish them well. My first smart phone was a BB and I enjoyed it with exception to internet browsing and the such. It was or has been the toughest phone I ever owned. If this phone is ready in which it just may not be why wait guys bring it to the table now please.

That.....bezel....is huge. I am going to assume this is not the final hardware, but from these shots, the phone itself looks ugly and is carrying a huge bezel.

24. MC1123

yeah... i find it not that likable too! but it looks good! the bezel is needed coz of gestures on BB10!

I'm hopeful this is not the final hardware. It looks a lot like the other shots of BB10 test devices that have floated around. Big bezel, looks a bit thick but not overly so. That one shot showing what looks to be a lock screen sure looks an awful lot like Android, but I'll reserve judgment until the devices are actually released. Hey it has to be better than the Storm at least.

It looks like a really nice phone and operating system, but so did WebOS.

Willing to look at BB10. I always seem drawn to the under dog. Still cheering for them. I think they have a very strong chance to keep most of their 60 million or so active subscribers.

its quit annoying that it has a large body but has a 3.5-4 inch display.

28. MC1123

its not large body...and definitely not 3.5" inch... its actually 4.2-4.3" as this will be the standard to RIM's new phones! coz this is the size of the dev alphas! but i would love to see at least 3.5-3.7" in low end market! coz this is actually the real standerds of our hands! :)
