New BB10 Device - Codename "Berlin" (Is this real? Have we seen this?)
Just read a tweet... "first sketch of a new BB10 device - codename Berlin #BlackBerry #BB10 #RIM"
This person only has 2 tweets, Just wondering if people think there is any legitimacy to this, or if you think the person just drew it up themselves.
Not sure if this image has been seen before. Kinda reminds me of that wrap-around screen concept from awhile back.
Anyhooo... Looks like it'd be a nice device, although not sure how the "TouchBars" would work in reality.

Usb port appears to be mini usb not micro in picture. No hdmi. Microphone never needs that many holes. Clearly home made by the tweeter using basic cad or ms paint skills.Phones:

My god I hope it's true and similar to the wrap around screen. That (concept) was the winner for me touch wise hands down. I think if RIM announced the 'Berlin' along with the 'Blade' model they could really capture the younger (18-35) wow factor on hardware alone.

I actually don't like this since it reminds me of the Nokia Lumia devices which I'm not a huge fan of.... but of course these are just sketches anyways...
Can you try to track down pics of the N-series by any chance?!--- Smartphone ---

RIM should patent this idea if it is truly theirs.
The left side bar could have little rectangles that light up when there's a new BBM/EMail/SMS etc. The right side could be a scroll bar for the browser so you're not covering the content while browsing.

Mic being so close to speaker = feedback? The measurements in inches are a nice touch, but mm is more precise and Canada uses the metric system, so I'm suspicious.Z10 running 10.1 on Virgin Mobile Canada, PlayBook 64 GB
Also own and have lots of experience with:
iPod Touch 4, iPad 3, Asus Transformer Infinity, Dell Streak 7, Samsung Nexus S, Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, Asus Nexus 7, Dell Venue Pro (WP7.5).
Have used Android and iOS phone as main phone for months at a time, but always return to BB.

Its the little details that will call out a fake first also, if this is real and RIM actually build their phones to tolerances LESS than +/- 0.002in than we would not be receiving these high quality devices... you can actually tell with your naked eye a discrepency of 0.001in (say its a gap between screen and boarder, you could tell one end of the gap is bigger)Previous device(s):_______Current device(s):_____Future BB device(s):

9800 Torch (Black)________BB Playbook 32GB
9780 Bold (Black)_________iPod touch 4th Gen

The drawing makes it out to be Lumia 900 which I'm holding in my hand. It's the exact thing down to the smallest details. The other thing is there is no HDMI port. The HDMI port seems to be standard on BB10. However the Lumia 900 has no HDMI port. I'm having a hard time believing this is real.Through the Years :2001 Ericsson T29s> Sony Z5> Sony Z7> SE Z600>Moto A760> RAZR V3>Razr V3i>BB 8800>BB 9500 >BB 9800>Bold 9900..RIM Returns with a bang
Life was much simpler when Apple and Blackberry were just fruits
