One of two new BB10 smartphones gets leaked

RIM has a lot riding on its next generation smartphones and BlackBerry 10 (BB10) operating system. Most consumers, businesses, and government agencies have left RIM for dead, so the company definitely needs a winner to stay relevant in a market that is dominated by iOS- and Android-based devices.
For those that are still firmly in the RIM camp, a slew of new high-resolution pictures of the BlackBerry L-Series smartphone were leaked this evening. When it comes to new product leaks, we're used to being hit with the "blurry cam" treatment. But surprisingly, these images are high resolution and capture the L-Series from nearly every angle.

The shots give us a glimpse at the display, front-facing camera, rear camera with flash, microUSB connector, HDMI connector, microSD slot, and 1800 mAh battery. The black slab is quite minimalist in design, but it sure does have the commenters over at CrackBerry bringing out their pacemakers:
Glad I'm not the only one who has to change their underwear.
Dat glASS...
I think I did something in my pants, and my wife wasn't behind it!
Well, we can definitely see that the BlackBerry crowd is fired up, but are regular consumers and businesses going to come crawling back to RIM?

Will it make a difference

As a Blackberry user it is nice to see them catch up. But, it is only catch-up not a revolution. In all honesty it is a big deal to change platforms so the lost users aren't coming back. That means zero impact on market share. The small market remaining will be the ones to purchase.

It may gain users if it does things better than the competition. Hopefully the battery life will be good, the OS is stable and has healthy app development while being able to use Android apps. Aside from the original Storm, BB phones were quite reliable.

You read very knowledgeable, If their catching up, but not revolutionizing. Lets overlook the new OS for a moment. What could RIM do to make you think its a "revolution" forgetting for a moment their a phone first and foremost, texting, and Camera, next. Please help me to buy a new revolutionizing phone. Lets forget the reason I bought it for in the first place, a phone.
