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?

this does obviously not have an edge to edge display, it merely has a piece of glass over the display that covers the surrounding bezel. this looks like a mix of iphone 5 and sony xperia designs. how is this something to get excited over??

The one with the keyboard does have an edge to edge display though, 4.3 inches with a physical keyboard. That one is more exciting. But I'm not convinced yet, and I'm not sure it's worth upgrading our BES infrastructure for. I think the biggest news is that it supports ActiveSync, so that's a huge plus. It's about f'in time is all I have to say on that one.

"the biggest news is that it supports ActiveSync, so that's a huge plus. It's about f'in time is all I have to say on that one."

4-5 years ago was about f'ing time for that. Now its just too late. We are draining our BB users as their contracts expire. As soon as the last one is gone in Q2 next year we will power the wretched Blackberry server off permanently.

I am not seeing anything great about this phone. At least it has Micro SD, HDMI and Mini-USB, with a big screen so it already beats the pants off the iPhone, but I dont see anyone switching back without a compelling feature that you cant get elsewhere... This is just catching up to where we already are.

You're absolutely correct on ActiveSync. I was trying to find some sort of positive. Rim will likely end up as a MDM company as Fusion will support all the major platforms. I won't lie though, I did enjoy the money made from everyone thinking BB10 will be a hit. Did wonders for the stock price. I'll dump it soon. The business community really wants rim to succeed so may as well take advantage.

I think it kind of looks like the Droid X now that I look at it a bit more.
