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.

Rocking a 1:1 aspect screen may make for a good instagram picture experience but I can't imagine trying to take normal 4:3 or 16:9 video with giant black borders. I agree with another commenter, the phone looks tiny(!) unless the pictured thumb is huge...

I have a samsung ace your regular size phone. If I put my thumb tip where his is my phone goes to the crease of the palm and thumb. The hand looks Photoshopped and the other picture looks like he cropped out the thumb.

I think RIM has a different target audience than others, at least with this model.

Someone did a little bit of trickery with the photos. The thumb is being held away from the phone making the phone look smaller. Comparing it to the fingers and I'd say it's roughly the size of a Galaxy II.
