Could This Be RIMs New BB10 Device “Blackberry Blade”

BlackBerry Blade - A BlackBerry 10 concept[click above for larger image]

Wow wow WOW! Just wrapping up the day and this came across the old CrackBerry Tip line. The image above came from Toronto Design Firm Pixelcarve and totally made my day. Seen here is the BlackBerry Blade – their idea of what the first BlackBerry 10 device could look like. Though with a trackpad and BlackBerry menu and back keys this feels more like it should be a next generation BlackBerry 7 (or 8) Smartphone than one running on the QNX-based OS. I’m don’t think we’ll be seeing these buttons on BlackBerry 10 phones (like the PlayBook, BB10 phones will likely be more focused on the swipe experience and touch UI).

Regardless, as far as concept sliders go it’s totally hot. The concept features an amazing 4.5 inch AMOLED display, quad-core 1.5GHz processor, Gorilla Glass and a 12MP camera. While the latest rumors are that the first BlackBerry 10 device won’t have a keyboard, this slider is still pretty awesome.

What do you think – should the BlackBerry Blade be RIM’s first BlackBerry 10 device? Or do you want something else like the BlackBerry London? Sound off in the comments!

blackberry-9320-2_2This device may not be revolutionary based on the specs, but one of the coolest new addition to it is the dedicated BBM button. RIM did away with some of the side convenience keys and now they are adding one back, a BBM button. BBM has been a huge success for RIM and now they are making it even easier to use with a dedicated button. This looks to be the first device to sports it.  The device is going to support OS 7.1, with a 512MB of RAM. An EDOF Camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and according to some leaked slides from before the device should be out in the next month or so in emerging markets.
