BlackBerry London leaks in 5-minute video

You can see the London -- and BB10 -- in action in this 5-minute clip.

Here's another look at RIM's next generation of mobiles.

A RIM employee was spotted demoing the L-series London BlackBerry 10 device in Mexico, Wired reports. This is the mobile that first leaked last year, but now we've got a good long look at it in action, along with its BB10 operating system.

The phone itself looks pretty much as expected, following the previous leaks. It's got the angled top and bottom we've come to know and love, along with the same squared-off icons we've seen before.

So what do we get from the video? You have to wait about a minute before the mobile makes an appearance, and then we get to the meat of it. Whoever was behind the camera seemed to be having some focusing issues as well. But the OS looks pretty slick, sliding between home screens with ease.

We see the mobile connect to BlackBerry App World, though a big sign comes up on the screen reading: Connected For Demonstration Purposes Only, so it's not a finished version.

The camera is shown off too, focusing on someone's face. And there's a pretty cool shot selection mode, where you run your finger round a circle to find the best snap of a batch. It'll work for group shots as well, so you can select a snap where everyone looks their best. We heard about this a few months ago, so it's encouraging to see it in action.

The BlackBerry London specs leaked a couple of weeks ago, and they sound pretty good. It's said to have a 4.2-inch display, with a resolution of 768x1,280 pixels. On the back sits an 8-megapixel camera, and there's a 2-megapixel front-facer, too.

RIM has a lot riding on BB10. What do you think of it from what you've seen? Let me know in the comments, or on our Facebook page.
