Two BB10 smartphones get an early reveal via leaked slides
Although RIM currently appears to be
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 (
) full-touch screen device and its N-Series (
) 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.

Your post was just nuts, that's why. It's like you actually expect "top end" models should have full keyboards. It's crazy.

[s] Yeah, I guess you can call me crazy for expecting a top end model cell phone to come with top end hardware. I am one crazy guy. [/s]
Like I said in my original post though it looks like BB may very well bring out a top model cell phone with a QWERTY keyboard and if they do I will be first in line to pick one up.

"Yeah, I guess you can call me crazy for expecting a top end model cell phone to come with top end hardware."
That's the point we are trying to make to you... A qwerty kb is no longer a feature of a top end phone.
"like I said in my original post though it looks like BB may very well bring out a top model cell phone with a QWERTY keyboard"
It says right in the artivle above that hte qwerty model will come out 6 months later. That, by default makes our point.
I dont disagree, it would be nice for alot of people if that option were around on top end phones, I just dont see it happening any more.
