One of two new BB10 smartphones gets leaked
RIM has a lot riding on its next generation smartphones and
(BB10) operating system. Most consumers, businesses, and
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
bringing out their pacemakers:
Glad I'm not the only one who has to change their underwear.
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?

You misunderstood my comment I think. This wasn't a comment on if RIM could successfully implement a software keyboard, at this point that shouldn't be terribly difficult to do because of how many have done it successfully. The comment was related to the people who are still die hard blackberry users. We have 13 people internally who use Blackberry. Almost everyone has moved to iPhone or Android. These people have not moved because they prefer the hardware keyboard and the fluff features don't matter to them. The CEO and COO are two of them. These diehard BB users aren't BB users because they are love RIM or BB. They are diehard users because of the physical keyboard.
Several of them would have switched to Android or iPhone if they had a device with a non-slide out keyboard like the BB Bold. So I'm not sure who this device is supposed to appeal to. People who have already switched to another platform? Because it's unlikely going to appeal to people who are BB users currently, the device they'll want is the 4.3" with the physical keyboard. And to me that looks like the more interesting of the two device anyway. I'm quite good with the soft keyboard at this point, despite thinking I'd never like them, but I won't lie and say I don't miss the physical keyboard.
I'm also not predicting success or failure for BB10. I really don't know how well it will do. I just think that if it's successful, it won't be this phone. It will be the other.

I should have noted, they have tried to move to other platforms, or most of them have, and went back to BB. So it's not like they didn't give it a chance. But when email is the most important thing your phone does, it's hard to beat that physical keyboard.
