They will drop the keypad to make another touch screen phone? That is not smart at all. They can not compete with Apple on applications neither with Samsung for the price. What do they expect? They are making another "Storm" May be OS10 will be good but if the phone hardware lack behind competition they screwed.
on second inspection I can safely say this is fake. lol
1. look at the second pic. bottom left corner, under the call icon. the edge of the screen is lower then the rest on the bottom of the screen. like if the photoshop was done a lil bit too low. this same icon also pours too far to the left.
2. the top right corner, just under the signal bars. you can see where the screen was pasted over the original image.
3. and this is the big one. look at the top of the 1st two pics. look at the order and placement of the battery meter, signal bar, bluetooth icon and carrier name. now look at the last pic. the battery meter has moved to the opposite side of the screen, the carrier name has also moved, as well as the bluetooth icon. also look as the wifi icon, note the at first it has 3 rings but in the last pic it has about 5.
Looks like they copied the Windows homescreen, the android menu and the Nokia belle function layout lol. Good work blackberry, there's hope 4 u yet. At this rate they will be back to being a power house, especially since Nokia has turned their back on Symbian and Meamo, without them there won't be any other OS as function. But then again it looks like iOS may actually be improving lol
Like MS Windows OS, I get the feeling that BB's OS 10 will be the same 5 min boot-up, freezing, not-user friendly system wrapped in a shiny new package.
RIM's own apps cause issues on their own phones and their are thousands of useless apps to download that only turn my phone into an ice cube. BB's App World is so horribly designed I wonder if anyone at RIM even try's to use it themselves.... I know I gave up on it. I have a Storm w/OS 5 and I tried using an OS 7 Torch at my carriers local store.... it froze just navigating through the OS and then a rep had to come and do a battery pull on it for me; after waiting for at least 7 minutes for it to turn back on I gave up and turned my back on BB at about 3/4 progress on the boot up bar.
My wife got an iPhone about 6 months ago with not one... not one issue ever; I had to replace my original BB phone four times in the first 6 months before I got one that didn't freeze on it's own every 1/2 hour. The only good thing about BB phones is BBM.
for every one how thing it looks like nokia "belle" thats because they both support Qt and this is the QML ux shapes
Edited or not its still a step forward for RIM..but a couple of steps behind everyone else still.
Will the current devices like BB 9900 be able to get this as an Upgrade?
Someguy, 14 Feb 2012These images are fake, my grandma can do that in Photoshop...it's a lousy work, look at the ed... moreYou have a point. The pictures might be edited but the thing is everyone is doing it. I mean whenever there's a new product, OS or whatever, the company needs to market it so that people, loyal or not to the maker, will be excited with it. In addition, it makes consumers elicits excitement and maintains enthusiasm about these new and still upcoming products, like the BlackBerry 10 OS. To cut it short, IT'S A MARKETING STRATEGY. You would want to save money with this marketing technique. Besides, CrackBerry.com is a trusted source in anything and everything about BlackBerry products and services and it says in this article that the pictures came from an email from RIM itself. Would you question their credibility? I don't think you should.

bob, 14 Feb 2012RIM better have some good lawyers... Or the Launch of this will be the end of BBYeah Bob, seems like they cannot invent their own and instead are copying the rest.
Rip, 14 Feb 2012Oh, boy... it has icons, and a touchscreen... I smell an apple lawsuit on the way! LOLI think there will be MS lawsuit not apple and Nokia might join MS in this lol
These images are fake, my grandma can do that in Photoshop...it's a lousy work, look at the edges of the device and the edge of the screen where the phone icon is !!!!
