Landing page for first Verizon BlackBerry 10 device leaks out, reveals silvery back model

Landing page for first Verizon BlackBerry 10 device leaks out, reveals silvery back model
BlackBerry 10, the new mobile operating system by Research In Motion, is set to launch at the end of January and the first devices are expected to launch in February, and while we are already buried in rumors about the upcoming devices, here is something new - the landing page for the first Verizon BlackBerry 10 device.

What’s interestingis that the device has a silvery back plate, a color version we’ve never seen before.

The actual screenshot - courtesy of @evleaks - is very low-res so it’s hard to tell much more about the actual device. However we are seeing that carriers are getting ready for the big BB10 launch, and that’s good for RIM.

The Canadian company has placed all its bets on the new operating system, delayed it and we’ve waited months on end until it is finally ready to ship. What are your expectations?

I so want blackberry to make a come back. This would push all others to pick up their game. I want iOS to come up with something better than what they currently have. Windows to keep adding apps. Enough of all this "my OS is better than yours". The mobile world would be better with more competition. Come on RIM. Don't disappoint.

100% agree. I've been using Windows Phone 7.5, but look forward to the great options when it is time to upgrade. Lumia 920 was always tempting (especially if they get it on Verizon), but these new Blackberry 10 devices and demos are making me excited as well. I'd love to have the dilemma of there being too many good options!

they surely wont disappoint us! just love that RIM take the whole year to make BB10 feature-proof! - siri/google now-like voice assistant/command? CHECK -AWESOME keyboard? CHECK -hardware? CHECK and a lot more! while WP? sad to say that microsoft lags behind them, they dont even have that personal assistant! and too many restrictions for manufacturers! but indeed iOS needs to come up with something awesome with iOS7! that will let us have this "WOOOOWWW"!! iOS lags on its UI! very very old! very very 2007, from the fiirst iPhone to the iPod touch and the iPad!! need to have new UI!! and hope they will include home screen now!!

Hope they didn't wait too long for that come back. Want them do do well (get 10% market share or more) just so we consumers can have REAL viable options.

Although I'm skeptical whether BB10 will be a success or not, it's good for consumers. More competition in the market always benefits the consumers. If Windows OS and BB had stayed dead, we would've been stuck in the status quo of iOS and Android for years.

All good things are worth waiting for, unlike half finish Iphones, Blackberry doesnt ship unfinished phones

I am looking forward to seeing what RIM has to offer but the phone design looks (too) similar to the iPhone. Apple legal will probably be all over this...
