BlackBerry N-Series images surface


Posted Image

Remember this little guy? It was Christmas Eve when Mr. Blurrycam gave us a look at this keyboard-equipped BB10 prototype. Skip to the present, and N4BB has apparently come across news images of it, minus the fuzz. Aside from being clearer, the phone's screen is notably powered on in this round images -- essentially proving it's more than a dummy. While we've known the unit is likely part of RIM's N-Series, the site notes that its actual model number may officially be presented as the X10 (not to be confused with Sony Ericsson, Klipsch and Fujifilm offerings of the same moniker). Things will certainly become even clearer on January 30th, that's for sure

Is the resolution and colour depth of that screen still ridiculously low?

Just looks like an old blackberry running android. Both of which are awful.

I feel so sorry for RIM. They have a bunch of 70 yr olds running the R&D department. That looks horribly dated. I mean what is up with chrome lines in between the rows.

It's for people who like physical keys, who are usually people resistant to change. It's just right for that.

If you like Blackberrys then im sure you'll like this. I feel like most will hate it.

I actually like the new design/approach.
I am a big fan of BB keyboards and their phones' ergonomics, so naturally, I am digging this new design.

Hopefully, the screen will be hi-res

Ergonomics are great, I just can't imagine being stuck with a square tiny screen again after using full touch screen phones for years.
