BlackBerry 10 & its First NBA Night with RIM CEO. Final Devices Grabs some Action!
No way is that a look at the new BlackBerry10 devices. Hiens will unveil Jan 30 2013 and not a day sooner. With that being said those dev alphas are still sweet looking imo. Maybe they were using the camera to catch a perfect picture I like everyone else can't freaking wait to get BlackBerry10 in my hands

As for the OP, that's quite the publicity pose from Thor & co. there. Doesn't look like a finished product, more likely an Alpha device. Still seems to have garnered some attention though.

I see .....Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong > national health information network > Vodafone > RIM
Thor recently made mention in an interview in regards to BB10 / QNX / NFC in a hospital/medical scenario, interesting indeed. Could RIM be involved in Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong's ambitious plan, time will tell.

These are the phones they showed off to the media. They aren't a dev alpha and they aren't the L-Series london. They are simply personal phones for staff and used to show the media that BlackBerry 10 is well on its way. The final phones will be more polished of course:
As for Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, he's probably a shareholder of RIM these days
"Soon-Shiong on Wednesday outlined his testbed for a new model of medical care: a system that lashes together genomic processing, supercomputing, high-speed data networks and the same mobile devices that people use to make dinner reservations. All of this technology will put the best information available in the hands of doctors instantly, he said at a Washington, D.C., conference put on by the Bipartisan Policy Center and a nonprofit called Doctors Helping Doctors."
The future is #RIM

Of even further interest, in the background of this photo notice the subtle yet smug smile on Andrew Bocking's face. Think he knows something we don't?
Andrew is RIM's Senior Vice President of Software Product Management.
This is by far the more interesting picture. That's Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong with Heins. Dr. Soon-Shiong is a professor at UCLA and he's a guy very interested in the future of tech, especially stuff like very low power semiconductors and oddly, augmented intelligence. He also has enough cash to buy RIM, and have some left over.
EDIT: Forgot to mention, Dr. Soon-Shiong also owns a piece of the Lakers, which he bought from Magic Johnson.
