Shots aren't as detailed as the L-Series leak, but give us the best glimpse yet at RIM's QWERTY BlackBerry 10 device

Just last week, we got a "blurrycam" shot of the QWERTY-keyboard packin' BlackBerry X10 smartphone from RIM. While the shot wasn’t exactly high resolution, it did give us a glimpse of what to expect when the actual headset -- along with its full touchscreen-equipped sibling -- launches next month.
 
This weekend, however, we've got some more X10 pictures from a person using something more than a 2MP dumbphone camera. The pictures clearly show the X10's relatively tiny (in today's world of 4" and 5" displays) display and QWERTY keyboard that extends from edge-to-edge.
 
The back of the display also shows the camera lens and flash. Given that this is likely a prototype unit, we can excuse the rather cheap looking finish of this X10 pictured. Hopefully the production models will have better graining than what's currently shown.

it's an ok-looking device. i think it's a bit too small though, after all the point of this is to facilitate typing on a real keyboard. so a slightly wider device with an accompanying bigger screen might have made sense here. then again, i'll reserve final judgment until i've held it in my own paws...

the hardware is of course going to be similar to what other phonemakers have, so it will all come down to software. you can look at BB10 presentations on youtube, and while it does look nice, there's nothing really useful or revolutionary in there that you can't get on android. this is really going to be an uphill battle for RIM.
