When BlackBerry 10 finally hits the streets next year, the handsets will fall into two camps, namely L Series for all touchscreen devices, and N Series for those with a traditional BlackBerry keyboard.
We’ve heard plenty about the all touchscreen stuff, with the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha and – more recently – the Dev Alpha B kicking around. Now it’s time for a look at some QWERTY.
The video leak – detailing both the L and N Series – was originally reported by CrackBerry, and provides the first look at the latter, in all its QWERTY glory.
Or should I say provided the first look, as the video has since disappeared. Bah. There’s still a bunch of stills over at the Crack den, however.
It appears to have been an early internal marketing video, perhaps a first edit, complete with some quite obvious Photoshopping type stuff. The Crackers suggest it was leaked by Rob Jury, the very man who edited the video. Oops.
In any case, the first of the N Series looks not unlike the BlackBerry Bold Touch, which is definitely a good thing, for our money.
BlackBerry 10 is expected to land in January 2013AD. In the meantime, check out this hands-on thingy from earlier in the week.
