The video was spotted by Crackberry, a Blackberry news site. Sadly, the video has been quickly removed by the poster. This, however, has not stopped the site from grabbing photos, which resemble previous leaks.
The two phones will be the first out of six rumoured to run RIM’s next generation OS Blackberry 10, which will be launched in 2013. The handset sporting a touchscreen is likely to be the London, which is rumoured to sport a display with a resolution of 768×1,280 pixels. The handset sporting a physical QWERTY keyboard is likely to be the Nevada, which is set to be the successor of handsets such as the Bold Touch 9900 or the Bold 9790. Handsets launched after the London will sport displays with a resolution of 720×1,280 pixels for touchscreen devices and 720×720 pixels for QWERTY handsets. This is said to make it easier for developers to make apps for the platform.
BB10 offers new features like gestures, which is a classy new virtual keyboard and camera enhancements. Sadly, it has suffered delay after delay. It has now been rescheduled to launch in early 2013.
Thorsten Heins, Research In Motion’s CEO, is convinced that BB10 will help the ailing Canadian phone manufacturer to get back in the game, after losing ground to the likes of Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS. Of course, this remains to be seen.
