Anyway, there will most likely be 2 or 3 strong phones and then 3 weaker, entry level phones.

Its not much longer to see what RIM will be rolling out and I am a BB Bold 9930 owner and love it. I may go to the new no keyboard version, time will tell. All I know is im staying with BB and excited about BB10!

OP you really believe the leaking N pictures are final? They are Dev Cs. Like A and B before it. Don't even worry, back material will be different.
Also I like the the look of the Dev front, but damn this is dope.
Screen ratio is wrong though, needs to be square [hence i added one]

Folks don't we know that the screen will be square. The only way to get more screen space is to make the device wider. So the looks of the device is irrelevant. What is relevant is the size of the square screen. Device should be as thin as the Z10 and be at least 71 mm wide.

Those who think that what we are seeing is the Dev C and that the real device will be much bigger are probably wrong. Why would you issue a Dev device with a different screen size than the future device? If you are happy with the current BB9900 you will probably like the X10 ... but why wait, buy the BB9900 at a lower price point ( after Jan 30th) .

RIM Developers Still Waiting for BB10 Keyboard Prototypes - Businessweek
The post says they dont even have the prototype yet. You say it is the real device? I dont know what we are seeing but the post is wrong then as I said before.

It is still not clear to me that the bottom area of the screen that contains the camera button the phone button and the virtual track pad is part of the usable browser space. If not, then the usable screen size is the same as the current 9900. At any rate I would expect even a sharper image and faster browser speeds , a front camera and a better rear camera and a longer battery life.
Battery life in a business phone is a key feature, so it had better last all day for the busy user.
I guess I will have to try out both the X10 and the Z10 to see if I value the keyboard over screen space.
The X10 could have been wider. The Z10 will be 129mm X 66mm , the Samsung S3 is 137mm x 71mm and the current 9900 is 115 mm X 66mm . I would prefer the X10 to be 120mm x 71 mm. I agree not much bigger but when the screen is small vs the competition you have to try harder. Anyway, I presume that RIM thinks 66 mm is the sweet spot for smartphone width.
