RIM Blackberry Z10 press images leak out, looks like the real thing

RIM Blackberry Z10 press images leak out, looks like the real thing
RIM is about to launch its BlackBerry 10 mobile operating system in just about a couple of days at a huge event and next month the first actual BlackBerries running on the new platform should arrive.

The BlackBerry Z10, the very first one, has already leaked out countless times in images and video, but this time it seems we have something special as @evleaks has gotten hold of what it claims is the official press image. And judging by all we’ve seen so far we have no reason to doubt its veracity.

The BlackBerry Z10, an all-touch device with no physical QWERTY keyboard, looks slightly conservatively designed, nothing outworldly, it’s a bit plain, but that simplicity and lack of radical decisions might actually help it get the sympathy of a wide range of people.

We ourselves are not enamored by the design, but what seems more important is what materials would RIM pick for the final device and what would be the feel because nothing feels worse than cheap plastic. With so many month in development, though, we have no reason to doubt RIM would at least pull the BlackBerry Z10 from a design perspective. Take a look at the leaked images right below.

This phone looks impressive. I don't think that it's a boring design.

They said the same thing about the BB Storm but look how it turned out.

I dont think BB dropped down in market share based on phone design...or the Storm is considered a bad phone because of design. It was a lil more to it than that.

RIM bought the company that created Meego like 2 years ago, so I hope they would use some of the stuff in Meego :) androidcentral [dot] com | rim-buys-astonishing-tribe

CLEARLY a rip off of Apple's IP (rectangular glass front with rounded corners!)

I hope they won't too. But if Samsung can get sued for their GS2/GS3 designs, then I don't see how RIM won't get sued for this Z10. My impression when I first saw the pictures of the Z10 was "Damn, I think they will get sued by Apple".

That silly patent protects an innovative design.

All RIM produces is garbage. They need to shut there doors and sell there crap. I don't understand why someone would go into a store and get a blackberry. I am not impressed at all. It's all garbage

Honestly, I believe the nay sayers will be bitter as BB takes off better then some other recently launched OSs have shown.

Don't care for the look of the phone. But, I really hope that there BB10 os is successful. Need to keep as many player in the mobile market as we can. Will only mean better products coming out for us.
