World gets a glimpse of BlackBerry 10
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.
