Nice, but are people afraid to peel that darned protective plastic sheet off the screen? I think I've seen only one or two sets of pics where someone actually took it off.
I suppose the slight blurring is intentional? Everyone seems to be doing it.___________________

perhaps the 8 sec boot time mentioned is just turning it off. not a full battery pull. On current BB, if you turn on the phone holding the end call button, or the icon to turn off, the boot time is almost nothing. it just comes on. lol.
As mentioned above, i'm more inclined to believe a 40 secs fresh boot time.

I hope the London has an LCD and not AMOLED. I had a bad experience with burn-in in the past after heavily using a phone for only 4 months. AMOLED really does not feel very BlackBerryish to me. I don't want to feel like I have to avoid using my phone to prevent damage.
I know early leaks suggested that London would be LCD, are there any hands on reports confirming?

It's gonna be a long, cold winter while we stare longingly at these pics... I wish Santa would come into my house, knock my unconscious and I wake up on 29th January 2013, just in time for the launch. Then to be whacked into a coma while celebrating the launch and waking up one day before my carrier has the phone on sale...Curve 8300 -> Curve 8320 -> Bold 9780 -> Torch 9860 -> Bold 9900 -> Z10
iPad 1 -> iPad 2 -> Playbook 64gb

Hardware is good, what about apps?
BlackBerry L series looks good. I think the final product will be a different and more refined from the blurry one. Probably will have a lot more "premium" or "expensive" look & feel. That said, what about apps guys? I have heard 100,000 apps available at launch.
I think Skype, NetFlix, Kindle are kind of must-have apps. BBM Voice is pretty cool but it's not Skype. Skype supports calling to regular phones, cellphones, it supports Skype-In number and so on. That's a must-have app.
I am afraid that RIM will succumb to pressure from cell-phone carriers and disable apps like Skype (that have potential to eat into carrier's voice-minute revenue). Android and iPhone are able to get away with offering whatever apps they want but RIM is not. RIM, in the past, has prioritized carrier's demands/wishlist more than end-consumer's demand/wishlist. Maybe they see carriers as their ultimate customer? That thinking has gotten them where they are now. Hope they are now prioritizing end-customer's demand/wishlist over carrier's!
