First shots of RIM BB10 N-series with keyboad leak

BlackBerry 10 N-series handset appears in publicity shots

The first press shots of a RIM BlackBerry 10 N-series handset with a physical keyboard have appeared in a leaked video (since pulled). However, CrackBerry managed to capture some screen shots for posterity showing a much more contemporary looking take on RIM's traditional handset style. The N-series will sit alongside the all touch screen L-series of handsets that RIM hopes to start shipping in Q1 2013.

The new N-series device features a larger multi-touch screen display, and the largest we have yet seen on a BlackBerry device with a physical keyboard. The first of the shots embedded below also shows how the new N-series handset will display multiple windows at the same time, again, a significant step forward in its design. While it could be argued this approach is long overdue, it could be enough to help stop RIM's seeming inexorable slide into oblivion.

After experiencing a period of seemingly interminable bad news, RIM shares jumped 14 percent yesterday after the Canadian handset maker posted better than expected results for the second quarter. Although it posted a loss of $235 million, it grossed $2.9 billion in sales, which was actually a $100 million increase on the previous quarter, marking a small but significant turn around in fortunes. Its subscriber base also increased over the quarter by 2 million, up to 80 million active users.
