    What version of BlackBerry 10 is that phone running? It looks absolutely nothing like any version of bb10 I have ever seen. It also looks absolutely ridiculous. Almost like Chen is holding a classic behind a samsung device. It's so crazy big.

    It's probably not running BB10. If the major components come from Samsung then it's probably running something else. That's probably why there's no close-up photo.

    How is it different from BlackBerry 10? I also have 3 icons on my z10.

    My thoughts exactly. That looks like an android app drawer (or card) as opposed to the bb10 homescreen and the stylized icons are reminiscent of touch wiz.

    I have a friend who used to work at BlackBerry and he got laid off when the big lay off happened, but still has many buddies there and goes to focus groups ect. He said that supposedly there's a android passport in circulation at BlackBerry. And says BlackBerry is going to start to release android OS on some BlackBerry devices. He said there will still be bb10 devices as well. So this phone having say an android os wouldn't surprise me

    I see phone, search and an unknown icon. My home screen is similar. What OS has phone icon on the home screen?

    Perhaps, that's 10.4 BlackBerry OS

    It might not be a fully functional prototype or it might be running Android for testing.

    It may not be a real OS at all. When PlayBook was announced, it was shown running something that looked like an OS but wasn't really anything.

    Who knows how far along this device is.

    Would it surprise me if BlackBerry releases an Android phone? Nope.


    This pic is just so bad that you can't do anything but speculate.

    It's running windows vista but you can't see any of it, it's just a full screen photo app showing a photoshopped screenshot of a Z30 app screen

    Who cares . It's not a production unit, it's probably running some kind of demo/dev branch/fork of BB10?
    UI is not the question here. Ui can be adjusted to absolutely anything...

    What I am really curious about is how the curved edges will be used, how the sliding mechanism will really work.
    If those buttons (call,..) are hardware buttons or just software and we can't just see the difference on the bad pictures

    Looks more like this pic. It has tool belt like in classic.
    It is definitely not BlackBerry OS10.3.1 as you know the icons in BlackBerry OS10.3.1 has decreased and are very tiny but in the pic it looks very big. It maybe the next BlackBerry OS or more of android +bb OS combined.
    Really waiting to get hands on it...

    Probably early 10.4. Just the header gives it away as a BB10 build. No Android skin I know has such a clean layout; battery at left, time in the middle, connectivity on the right.

    Maybe the surprise is that it is part samsung and part blackberry hardware. Running Android.

    The bottom buttons are a little strange, though I'm drawing no conclusions. The rest is likely BB10.3.2. You can clearly see the top left icon is the "BllackBerry Hub" icon, second row on the right is the "Assistant" icon, second row left is "Text Messages", and there are a bunch of folders on the bottom.

    The Z30 running 10.3 has 6 rows of icons. There's nothing really strange about this OS.

    If I'm not wrong the curved screen will be used for this!
