World gets a glimpse of Black­Berry 10

Hindustan Times (Patna) - - FRONT PAGE - HT Cor­re­spon­dent

NEW DELHI: Less than a cou­ple of months be­fore an of­fi­cial re­lease in the com­pet­i­tive phone mar­ket, im­ages of Black­Berry 10 hand­sets have been leaked on­line.

The smart­phones are expected to re­vive the strug­gling com­pany, which has been hit by the ad­vent of An­droid-based smart­phones and the Ap­ple iPhone.

The pic­tures show both the full-touch­screen de­vices — the Black­Berry 10 L se­ries and N se­ries. They also show a long-awaited Black­Berry 10 phone with a full qwerty key­board, the UK-based Tele­graph re­ports.

This comes at a time when Canada-based Re­search In Mo­tion — the par­ent com­pany — reg­is­tered a net loss of $235 mil­lion for the sec­ond quar­ter this year.

How­ever, its sales in In­dia have surged.

Black­Berry phones be­came pop­u­lar among high-fly­ing ex­ec­u­tives due to the push email ser­vice, which al­lows them to ac­cess emails just like an SMS.

The com­pany hopes its lat­est of­fer­ing — the video of which was posted on video shar­ing web­site Vimeo and im­ages on crack­berry.com — will help it re­gain for­mer glory.
