The latest BlackBerry Z10 pictures make you wish it were already 2013

The excitement and anticipation over BlackBerry 10 has overshadowed RIM 's most recent earnings report which revealed for the first time, a drop in the number of BlackBerry subscribers. What has analysts concerned is the new business model that has RIM getting a reduced amount of cash flow from carriers as fewer BlackBerry users require RIM's security measures with BlackBerry 10.
The latest speculation has the BlackBerry Z10 offering a 4.2 inch screen with resolution of 768 x 1280 with a high pixel density of 356ppi, well above the Retina display on the Apple iPhone 5. A dual-core 1.5GHz processor will be doing the heavy lifting and the U.S.models are expected to have the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 under the hood. 2GB of RAM is on board while there is 16GB of native storage that can be expanded using a hot swappable microSD slot. The 8MP camera on back captures video in 1080p while there is a 2MP front-facing shooter. An 1800mAh cell powers the device. The phone will have LTE connectivity and supports NFC.
The countdown to January 30th has begun!

I don't see anything super innovative in this phone.

well nothing about this phone or its specs make me wish it was 2013 already. By the time this comes out this will be a mid-ranger facing tough competition from Android manufactirers who have a pattern of launching flagships in the year beginning like HTC, Huawei, LG, etc.

Flagships are highend devices, comparing a flagship device to a mid range device is pointless. I like the phone's looks and the OS, I'll pay close attention to the reviews and Black berry world post launch. This phone is my best bet for a smartphone i like android but they don't have what i want. BB10 is my last hope at getting something i truly want. The only thing i'm worried about really is the pricing i know rim has a history of applying premium prices to their mid range and high end phones, If that's going to be way too high i'll either wait until later or settle for an android device.

Which is why RIM's share price is taking a hit - they are depending on volume sales of a boring phone. That won't hit the market until when? March, 2013?

Shows how misinformed you are. Their stock hit an all time low back in September of this year. The value of the stock is nearly double what it was then, in what 3 months? Its still entirely possible BB10 will be a fail, but do you have any explanation other than the market is legitimately still interested in it and expect it to be the #3 player, not WP8? I dont think the stock would have responded the way it has if the market thought BB10 was dead in the water.

Talking about design looks pretty good except display is a little to small (at last for me). Talking about operating system I say thanks but no.

considering that 2013 will probably see the rise of 1080p phones than this probably be a pass for most consumers because most business companies will most likely invest heavily on this because they invested on blackberry in the past the only issue is basically it cannot suck on any level. the resolution is good the size of the display could of been bigger considering the average size for displays are 4.5 or 4.6 but expandable microsd is good thing, 2gb of ram another plus, camera is a plus, LTE good, the battery can be bigger, so the only question is the OS BB10. because BB10 has been in the air for quite sometime and has been delayed a good amount of time. the question is how will it fair, what has RIM done in that time to make BB a contender in the future that is the question. starting in jan through the year we will have an answer cause all the big names are coming out with phones next year Samsung Galaxy S IV, Maybe a new Note, probably an iphone 5s, Windows Phone 8 series, and etc,and most likely be 1080p powerhouse smartphones with hopefully blasting hardware. we will all need to see how to pans house cause if this doesn't work that pretty much RIM is doomed and have no choice but to close doors or get bought out. all i can say BB10 better be good for RIMS sake
