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?

It looks and functions just like an Iphone with BBM added in and it even has the same "minimalist design" just in RIM black. BB10 uses the same and tired icon grid layout that android copied years ago, at least Microsoft tried a different layout with Windows Phone. I was waiting to see what new and fresh OS design/layout RIM would come up with for business seeing how not that long ago they were the business standard. I never thought I would see the day RIM would lose its way and can only play catch up to the competition. I find it incredible that it took them 3 years to come up with this lackluster solution. When it is time to finally retire the old BlackBerry Pearl, I'll be choosing between the next Iphone or Galaxy Note. Microsoft still has a little more to prove to me with WP8 before I'd use it.
- Longtime BB user. Thanks for nothing RIM. -

I am testing an iPhone for our move away from Blackberry and I wouldn't go there. iPhone may be accepted as a defacto standard but it isn't an enterprise device. Uses excessive data with no compression, requires expensive third party management solution, consumer level warranty
