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. (
), 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
better than expected financials
have raised some cautious optimism among beleaguered investors.

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
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
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?

as a BB dev...

as a mobile applications developer, if they want apps to be built for their platform they're going to have to make it easier for us to develop, when i do projects for fun i never do BB because BB isn't fun.
under the hood it's a pile of garbage, i don't know if they can turn that around, but given that they built a pile of garbage once and didn't look back, i think they'll build one again.
in fact, i can't wait till they go out of business.
