Summary of interesting rumours on BB10 from @BlackBerryScoop
A twitter user, BlackBerryScoop, appears to access to internal information at RIM. I would suggest following him for some interesting rumours about what is coming with BB10. I made a summary of the most interesting tweets.

Is @BlackBerryScoop part of the 90% controlled leak or 10% "other" leak. I also saw a post about BlackBerry Infinity. I'm most surprised about the G+ confirmation as Google has been doing a full pull out on BlackBerry OS for some time now.

the majority of info there is public knoweldge anyway (BBM video collaboration was in the sneak peek given at BB World back in may).
We also already had heard of BB Link, also the black forest (10" PB), aristo, the new qnx car was blogged by qnx themselves, and the social apps have most all been seen in videos of demos if you look closely, and timeshift is a feature of BB10 - not the L series, and we all know BB10 is coming to the PlayBook.
If we`re honest we knew it was RIM leakin all that L series stuff too.
the `news` here is the new retail locations, the rest is repeated from others tbh.

i can tell you right now in the last portathon the average apps submitted per hour was 113. I can even prove it, this twitter account kinda cant till launch.
as for BBM10 Money, isnt that a logical step? BBM Money, and they want to leverage BBM to make money? is a little common sense.
BB10 PlayBook UI is different to phones. err, thats something which people (developers) who know where to look can find relatively easily, i`ll say no more than that but i spotted it straight away.
but yes, im still reading, and dont take any of these points negatively (or personally, unless its your account lol ). Im just not the person that believes everything someone says with out getting a little proof first.
there is a well known phrase on the internets, `pics or it never happened`. nuff said.

Don't take too seriously in case these are false.
Better to have low expectations than high expectations. Because then you'll always be happy when the release exceeds your expectations.
Heard from a friend at RIM that the leaked pictures of the BB10 is in fact the final hardware. Internals might be different, but the externals are pretty much all leaked out.

Any mention of playbook in that list of tweets seems dubious to me, other than smaller cheap android tablets there isn't really any proof that there actually is a tablet market rather than an ipad market so the idea that they would be spending resources on a product that probably wouldn't contribute huge sales seems laughable at this stage of bb10, it is something that would come quite a bit later when the focus has moved beyond launching bb10 onto consolidating and updating it.

Example: <-- How many people do you think even know that. Yet, it could be a key reason for people to buy full touch over the QWERTY version. We've never seen images of it but there it is right there in the developer documentation showing it. Yes, it's a very mild example but I'm sure you get my point. If not well, I point you to the Evernote integration that was shown off.. it was there in the developer documents the whole time yet, it took the right set of eyes to look at and say "Holy crap! This is something that is newsworthy" essentially.
Think of apps.
Think of what were once conceptual ideas from long ago.
Think of those BBM enhancements Thorsten mentioned.
Think of OS integration.
Think of mobile computing.
Or better yet -- don't think about them -- it's more fun that way.

He tweeted recently "Someone told me surely these leaks are accidents. Have you ever wondered why leaked screen shots never seem to have much 3rd party apps?" That is actually a very cool thing and I can not believe I never realized it before. If all of these leaks are coming from carrier testers and employees why are there never any apps on them other thank the core native ones. I know if I was an employee I would be enjoying thse 117 000 apps such as Skype which QuIcKsIlV3r has said will be here and he has seen it on his friend's(rim employee) dev alpha. Hmmmm

More interesting tidbits over the past day or so:
- the sides of the released phone have recently been "refined" and are not like the leaks
- the voice control function may be more similar to Google Now than to plain Siri
- Bla1ze may be dead on with his comments in this thread
For some reason I think there may be a connection between @BlackBerryScoop and S180 on this forum. No actual evidence of that.
