Leaked screenshots show BlackBerry 10 OS photographed for posterity
An Italian BlackBerry site is displaying some pictures of the BlackBerry 10 OS. The site, BlackBerryItalia, admits that the screenshot to the right was Photoshopped, but only for privacy purposes. Serial numbers and bar codes were removed and the site says that the OS looks exactly as you see it in the photo. As for the AT&T apps on the screen, they came on the BlackBerry PlayBook beta as well. The only questionable app on the screen would be the Skype app which could be the Android app icon.

RIM CEO Thorsten Heins has already let loose the news that the  BlackBerry 10 devices will have a removable battery. A video shows that the cell is an 1800mAh capacity battery and will be used on the first two BB10 models which are currently code named BlackBerry London and BlackBerry Liverpool. 

Heins has mentioned that there will be a total of 6 BlackBerry 10 models with 3 full touchscreen devices and three with a physical QWERTY keyboard. According to the sourcelink, the six devices include the R044 BlackBerry Nevada, similar to the BlackBerry Bold 9900 with a physical QWERTY; R061 BlackBerry Colt, which is the BB10 Dev Alpha device; R064 BlackBerry Wynton; R072 BlackBerry London, a 2G/3G model with a full touchscreen; R084 BlackBerry Nashville; R085 BlackBerry Naples; R086 BlackBerry Liverpool with 2G/3G/4G connectivity.

why? what would apple get from rim? rim can barely support itself and would probably file for bankruptcy... which is likely to happen anyways so why would apple pay to make it happen a little quicker…

Actually, RIM has little to worry about from Apple as they do not need to use any of their designs. RIM has had a large flux of design patents for some time now and its success is not dependent on copying from others namely Apple.

I can't see BB10 succeeding at all. it's too late for the release. It can't compete with three massive ecosystems. there's room for fourth 1st- Android - flagships Nexus/Note 2nd- IOS 3rd Windows phone 4th- BB10

It's never too late if you have an awesome product! Look where Symbian and Windoes Mobile were a few years ago and now their are dead. Nothing is meant to last for ever. Time is not standing still.

Windows Phone is still currently not that much of a massive ecosystem, with Android being somewhere around +55% of the Global Smartphone Market and iOS being +28-30%, Windows Phone is still quite low, still somewhere below 10%.... Maybe Windows Phone 8 will change that, but they're not yet massive by any means. Yet I do agree BB10 is a long shot from becoming a big player with competitors like that.

This is good. Choices are good for everyone. I hope they succeed and pull their company out of the hole. Personally I'd like this for a secondary device. I don't care for WP and I despise anything IOS. Now we have another option. Bravo RIM and good luck!

Well you can't deny that Wp is a great alternative to Android and IOS. no doubt about that. as well as BB10

RIM is wasting too much money on BB10 with no Apps is no sale. RIM must switch to Android or WP OS in order to survive.

Hopefully they have a plan for this phone (Releaseing it on all major cariors in the us and europe canada etc. giving it a nice amount of apps not just links to pages, making it both user friendly for buisness customers and the average consumer.) they don't need a to jump ship to android or wp not yet at least they just need to get there os right this time. And yes if it is realeased before the company goes bankrupt i will be buying the device(s) there new os is running on.
