BlackBerry 10 devices leak, keyboard making a comeback

The first BB10 handsets make an appearance on the interwebs, along with RIM's fabled physical QWERTY keyboard to boot

RIM appears to be making good on its promise to release BlackBerry 10 devices with physical QWERTY keyboards, at least if the latest online device leaks are are to be believed.

N4BB claims that RIM has a pair of BlackBerry 10 phones in the works – the touchscreen L-series and the keypad-toting N-series.

The L-series looks to be very similar to the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device which we got our hands on last month, and will reportedly sport a 1280×768 OLED display, with an impressive iPhone 4S-beating 356ppi.

The N-series’ screen is smaller with a 720×720 resolution, but it’ll be packing the physical QWERTY keyboards that CrackBerry addicts have been hooked on for years.

The L-series is expected to be released in September, with the N-series expected to make an appearance sometime in the first three months of 2013.

Only time will tell if these latest leaks prove to be true, but after spending some time with the BlackBerry 10 OS, RIM appears to be on the right track.
