    Default L series back found - textured black

    Didn't see a thread discussing the new photo of the back displayed on CrackBerry homepage
    Get a closer look at that BlackBerry 10 device with the textured back! | CrackBerry.com
    Is this back faux leather? Or is it plastic? I can't tell.
    Plastic would feel really cheap/non-premium. I hope it's not plastic.

    EDIT: More pictures leaked! whoa, a whole bunch of them leaked. http://crackberry.com/blackberry-10-...ous-new-images
    I am somewhat underwhelmed by the textured back. For some reason, it doesn't look 'premium' to me! Could just be the pictures.

    Dear BlackBerry,
    UPGRADE existing users to BB 10. Don't want to price devices too low? Start a 'trade-up' program. Let existing BB users exchange their old (even non-working) devices for new BB10. Eg: Old BlackBerry + $250 = Z10 This way, you won't have to officially lower your MSRP.

    Looks great, almost like a carbon fiber back.

    I actually think it looks terrible. It looks pretty plasticy and cheap. Even if it isn't plastic, I don't like it. Maybe it is something that looks ehh in picture but looks amazing in person (Torch 9850/9860). Rubberized backing should be RIM's thing. Don't put a cheap plastic thing on it.
    My goal here is to help out and provide knowledge! Feel free to shoot me a PM

    Rim should sue for anyone else using rubbery backs

    There are many kinds of plastics....even ones that feel like leather. I suspect it will be plastic, but a premium one like on the Playbook

    Yeah, I can't tell if it's plastic or faux leather or rubberized material. But yeah, it doesn't look very premium in the picture. Hope RIM takes care of that. We need premium look and feel!
    Also, as I mentioned in other thread, I want this thing in REDcolor too!

    Actually RIM put a teaser of this on their new site for BB10 news and updates. you can find a link on the Crackberry homepage.

    Yeah I know that.The official tease only showed a corner and alot of the picture was blacked out.This just look straight photoshop and its claimed by one person BB sites have not jumped on this for it to be credible.I cant take this but a photoshop job based on original leak.Until we get better clarification from more/better sources I cant take this as real.Actually makes no sense for 2 leaks in what 2 days from seperate sources RIMS better than that.

    Until otherwise this a photoshop job for me.

    I live in Waterloo and many RIM workers have the device. I have used it and the back is textured but playbook material-like.

    I don't think it will be plastic. I hope it's some kind of rubberized plastic like the back edge of the black 9900. I have a white 9900 too and they used plastic, probably because white rubberized plastic would get visibly dirty. But in the case of the L-Series, I think a hard rubberized plastic with that texture would feel great.

    Default L series back found - textured black

    Hey its about how the plastic is used, I don't mind plastic, I just want it HIGH QUALITY. That's all

    Even your Ferrari has plastic. What sets the boundaries between normal car makers and Ferrari is the quality of materials.

    So we should be ok with plastic, let's just hope, no slipping and no falling, maybe rubber
