While we have seen render images of what appears to be the first QWERTY keyboard-based BlackBerry 10 device released on the Internet before, there haven't really been any clear images of an actual production model. That may have changed this weekend. The BlackBerry fan site N4BB.com claims to have gotten a hold of some sharp images of that upcoming smartphone from Research in Motion.
The images on the site also show that it is actually running the BlackBerry 10 OS, unlike some earlier leaked images from the same site that showed blurry images of the smartphone. N4BB also claims that the final production name of this device, which has been referred to in the past as the N-Series, will be the BlackBerry X10.
So far, the only offical image that RIM has released of its BlackBerry 10 hardware lineup is a teaser image that shows part of the back of one of its two smartphones. RIM will be holding its official launch event for BlackBerry 10 in New York City and other parts of the world on January 30th. The touch screen exclusive model will likely be released first, with the QWERTY keyboard model to be released later in the year.
