We’ve already seen plenty of leaked shots of RIM‘s upcoming BlackBerry Z10 handset, but this is the first time that we’re seeing what look to be official press images of the device. There’s not a lot of new information here, but we finally get to see RIM’s new device in proper lighting, even if the images are only renders.
The leak comes from the EVLeaks Twitter account, who posted the leaked press shots yesterday. While we’ll still keep a skeptical mind (as with any rumor and leak), these press photos look like the real deal, and EVLeaks has been quite reputable in the past with leaked shots, so we’re pretty certain these will be the ones hitting the front pages of carrier websites.
What’s even more revealing about these “official” press photos is that this is most likely what the final product will look like when RIM officially unveils the new phone come January 30. In the past, we’ve certainly seen our fair share of leaked photos, and while those may have just been prototypes, these press shots reveal the final product.
Overall, we definitely like the design. It’s nothing too special by any means, but it’s sleek and stealthy, and it definitely has that BlackBerry feel to it. Since BlackBerry 10 seems to be a competent platform, we can’t see a reason why the Z10 wouldn’t be a success for RIM, but we’ll ultimately have to wait and see later this month.
