There is a Difference betwee the Two... (N-Series)
People are freaking out over the look of the back of the recent leak from N4BB (Source)
Take a look very closely.... the leak that came out last week from NerdBerry (Source) is different from the recent leak from N4BB:
The BB logos are in different positions and the most recent leak on the right has a very plastic look to it, not really RIMs style. While the one on the left seems to have a more textured look to it. So lets not freak out yet, keep the calm, BlackBerry is coming. Almost T-minus 30 days until launch.Concept Corner: C004104CASamsung SPH A540 ▶ Motorola V551 ▶ Samsung SCH A645 ▶ HTC Touch P3050 ▶ BB Curve 8330 ▶ BB Bold 9000 ▶ Huawei U8100 ▶ Apple iPhone 3GS ▶ Motorola Spice ▶ BB Curve 3G 9300 ▶ Apple iPhone 4S ▶ BB Bold 9900 ▶ BB Q10 ▶ (Current Device) iPhone 6 Plus ▶ (Next Device) BB Priv

Time will surely tell I hope it's Dev C honestly, maybe just a different backplate.

The rabbit hole just keeps going deeper, racking my brain over these devices, lol. January 30th can't come soon enough!Concept Corner: C004104CASamsung SPH A540 ▶ Motorola V551 ▶ Samsung SCH A645 ▶ HTC Touch P3050 ▶ BB Curve 8330 ▶ BB Bold 9000 ▶ Huawei U8100 ▶ Apple iPhone 3GS ▶ Motorola Spice ▶ BB Curve 3G 9300 ▶ Apple iPhone 4S ▶ BB Bold 9900 ▶ BB Q10 ▶ (Current Device) iPhone 6 Plus ▶ (Next Device) BB Priv

Nice catch! I only noticed a difference in the texturing of the device between both pictures. The back in the new photo looks even worse than it did on the older one. The material looks cheap, that camera opening seems awkward, that silver stripe looks out of place and in general the whole image looks like that thing is an el-cheapo device. Of course we all can only judge when we see the "real", finalized thing.

I'm openly torn between the Z10 and the QWERTY version, whatever it will be.
The way the Z10 works is very intriguing to me. The problem I have, however, is that I love my QWERTY. The QWERTY version has to achieve a number of things for me to not jump to the Z10. Namely, I need it to achieve the same flow as the Z10. I want it to be a BB10 phone - not a new 9900. To do this, it must have a large enough physical screen to allow for the proper jesturing. There is no way my 9900 can do the same jesturing as the Z10.
I know there are people who are stuck on the trackpad. I am not. The trackpad is useful where touchscreen is not accurate enough or where you don't have enough physical real estate to touch the screen in the appropriate way. The screen also needs to be large enough to read content well enough. Webpages, images, e-mails, etc. should fit enough on the screen so that's the text (or image) isn't too small.
It's an interesting problem to resolve. The reason everyone seem to enjoy designs such as the TK Victory is because it looks to achieve those goals. It achieves a beautiful aesthetic while maximizing the practical screen size for a QWERTY device.
These devices aren't final. They're obviously test or dev devices.
I have no option but to wait to see the REAL QWERTY version in action before I can decide between the Z10 and the X10.@jr4941

In the 9 months that I've had my 9900, I think I've spent 0:08 seconds total looking at the back of it. I don't see what the big deal is...

I think that the back shown in the first leak is likely to be the final one, if you look closely at it you will see a similar sort of weave pattern as you have on the battery cover of the 9900.
In both cases, I doubt that either of them are the dev alpha c, it is more likely that the later pictures have simply come from beta rather than final hardware.

Hey now wait a minute! I said in the Dev Alpha C or Real N series thread....the different placement of the logos. I was the First to catch that!
