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.

They are planning BOTH versions. They are known for their physical keyboards so it would be stupid not to offer a physical version for those in their existing user base that prefer them.

With that said it would take a stupid amount of convincing to get me to consider using BB10. Even ignoring everything else I don't think QNX is the right platform to build on.
