Upcoming February/March launch will be key test of RIM's remaining draw

While there's still a hearty helping of gloom and doom surrounding embattled Canadian smartphone-maker Research in Motion, Ltd. (TSE:RIM), there's also been recent signs that could raise the hope that the company could survive the rocky and delay-filled BlackBerry 10 launch.  Lower than expected defections and better than expected financials have raised some cautious optimism among beleaguered investors.

The latest leak from the BlackBerry space is the leak of a single image of the full-QWERTY N-Series model, which is likely to be named the BlackBerry X10.  For those who aren't BlackBerry veterans, RIM's keyboards are widely regarded as the best in the industry, making tapping out a quick email much less tedious (and less autocorrect-filled) than using a touch screen.

The new device, though, tweaks the traditional formula a bit, straightening out the curved keyboard into straight lines.  It was clear not all readers on the enthusiast site CrackBerry were fans of the change, with some going as far as to say they hoped the images were fake.

As with any device image leak, the authenticity is open for debate, but CrackBerry tends to have a relatively impressive record leaking past devices.  What do BlackBerry fans think?  Is this the keyboard you're looking for, or has RIM gone too far?

Sounds like those were the years of no innovation and probably why you left BB as others have innovated.
