Purportedly leaked specs of Research in Motion's new BlackBerry 10 line show a new all-touch smartphone that has a higher resolution screen than the Retina Display on the iPhone 4S, according to BlackBerry news site

The specs include details of both the BackBerry 10 L-series, an all-touch-screen device, and the N-series, which features the traditional physical QWERTY keyboard.

The L-series has a 768x1,280-pixel screen resolution and has a screen that is 55mm wide; the N-series is 720x720-pixel resolution, with a 52mm to 53mm wide screen, according to an internal document that also shows images of the phones' layouts.

RIM has had a spate of bad news lately. In the latest blow, a Morgan Stanley analyst expects a delay in the fall debut of the BlackBerry 10 line due to fiscal problems and said the company may have to shed 90 percent of its workforce to survive.
