New photos reveal BlackBerry 10 L-Series design in full detail

New photos reveal BlackBerry 10 L-Series design in full detailYesterday RIM teased us with a glimpse of the BlackBerry L-Series device it'll be unveiling as part of BlackBerry 10's official unveiling on January 30 – an image, it turns out, that's actually present in full in the BlackBerry Dev Alpha code released this week.

But never mind that, because a leak-happy chappy over in Vietnam has snapped some high-quality pics of the so-called “London” BB10 phone in the flesh, giving us the clearest sense yet of just what RIM is cooking up.

The images surfaced on Vietnamese enthusiast site Tihn Te, and there's plenty of them too, with the the next-generation BlackBerry's front, back and even its innards laid bare for us all to see.

It's moderately attractive too, from the looks of it. The full touch interface means the front face is kept neat and tidy, a look that works well with the mesh-like rear surface we saw in close detail in RIM's own teaser image.

With the removable back cover off, we can see a slot for a (removable) 1,800mAh battery, along with micro-SIM and microSD slots, while we can see a volume rocker with a play/pause button down one side, and micro-USB and micro-HDMI slots down the other.

In all, then, it's a well equipped handset that delivers subtly pleasing aesthetics without drawing too much attention to itself. And there's nothing much wrong with that.

What's the rumoured screensize by the by?

More than 4" possibly 4.5 or 4.7" from the looks of it in this clip comparing it to an iphone 5

4.3" I think, doesn't look half an inch bigger than the iphone.

Yeah could be. Looking at it reminds me of an HD2 :)

Looks quite generic to me.
Is this the look they're going for?

I think its pretty awesome looking. Any word if the software will back up the hardware? Or is it gonna be below par again?

Smecky,
I agree - I think, at leaat on these photos, it looks nice. Buttonless front etc Quite stylish.
I hope they chose good materials - but hey, the 9900 was one of the best-made devices I used in the past 2 years.
The software is said to feature some interesting stuff.
We'll see. They'll have a hard time to convince the Android- loving 'blogosphere', though.

Looks alright, but it's a Blackberry......hope it's better made than their other phones......Blackberrys of old go faulty too much......they are the make of phone that gets repaired or replaced the most........and the software is too complicated for most users of the phone, when something goes wrong it's a pain trying to solve the problem...........

The main flaw in the past was the trackball... thing of the past.
Difficult OS? If people can't get to grips with universal search which makes BB OS one of the easiest around, than they should indeed stay away :p
