BB10 smartphone images make their way to the Web

RIM's first phone to arrive running the new BlackBerry 10 operating system has been spied in new leaked photos, showing off a large touchscreen and a curvy design.

Codenamed BlackBerry London, the new pictures of this upcoming mobile come from Italian site BlackBerryItalia, via Pocketnow, and tell us something of what we can expect from RIM's last-gasp attempt to win back the smartphone crown.

The image lends credibility to another BlackBerry London image that leaked way back in February, suggesting that RIM has had this phone's design up its suit sleeve for a long time. The London will have an impressively high 768x1,280-pixel resolution, but subsequent touchscreen-only BB10 phones will all have 720x1,280-pixel screens, to help app developers.

BlackBerry 10 is the next BlackBerry operating system and it introduces new features including gestures, a swanky on-screen keyboard and some intriguing camera features. Unfortunately, the software is now well behind schedule following several delays, and is currently due to launch early next year.
