BlackBerry 10 Qwerty phone captured in blurry leaked photo

We might be waiting patiently for the official announcement of BlackBerry 10 on 30 January, but that doesn’t stop us from enjoying more leaks from Research In Motion, this time a blurry picture of the rumoured Qwerty keyboard model.

If the image is correct, the new phone - which RIM has previously officially confirmed to be launching in the first half of 2013 - looks like the current BlackBerry Bold, but with a straight keyboard and square touchscreen display. It also appears to have lost the hard shortcut keys above the keyboard.

The picture will give hope to BB users keen not to lose their keyboard and show that RIM is serious about servicing their needs.

RIM has said it will be launching BlackBerry 10, its new operating system, on 30 January in a number of events around the globe. Pocket-lint will be at the London event covering all the news as it happens.

We will keep you posted.
