Two BB10 smartphones get an early reveal via leaked slides

Although RIM currently appears to be bleeding out after many self-inflicted knife wounds, new leaked slides show that the company is still hard at work on fresh hardware to headline its BlackBerry 10 operating system. The slides shows two devices, the L-Series (London) full-touch screen device and its N-Series (Nevada) QWERTY keyboard-equipped sibling.
Although not much is known about the hardware inside the phones, the L-Series is said to feature a 768x1280 OLED display (356 PPI) and is 2.16" wide. The L-Series looks similar to the dev hardware that was shown off at the official unveil of BlackBerry 10.

The N-Series' screen size is obviously compromised by its physical keyboard and is limited to a 720x720 screen resolution (330 PPI). The N-Series is slightly narrower at 2.08".
For comparison, the iPhone 4S and Galaxy S III weigh in at 326 PPI and 306 PPI respectively.
According to N4BB, the L-Series could make its way to the market in September, while those looking for some physical keyboard action with the N-Series will have to wait until the first quarter of 2013.

They have hardware that will match other products from earlier this year and an OS that will (hopefully) match Android 4 and IOS6... This will help raise RIM's sale value when they sell it all off.

the blackberry os is/will be worth nothing. the os is tied to their hardware which is completely obsolete - it is in the same situation that win mobile 6.5 was circa 2007-8. barely alive but everyone knows it going to be extinct very soon.

the quicker they can disentangle BES (the only thing that makes any money from RIM) from the blackberry os and port it to windows mobile/ios/android the more they will get when they have to asset strip RIM

Is this some sort of a comeback response? Lets see here, everything I said would happen is happening. Everything you said would happen is not happening... So your comeback to this is to sarcastically call me "Thorsten" when I talk about what is happening? I dont get the logic. Like I said, it doesnt take a psychic to see what is going on at RIM. It takes either a blind, or a delusional person to not see it. Clearly you are the latter Pirks.

You know the pending RIM sale date and price and what not and you do NOT know the specs of their new phones? This is a lame excuse Thorsten. Very lame.
