    Michael Clewly, on his BBM channel, posted a picture describing a new gesture in the 10.1 MR. However, you'll notice the screen shot would be too big to be taken from the Z10. I don't know if any information can be gained from it but I've attached it below.


    Edit: I could find a way to save the screen shot directly from his BBM channel so I had to take a screen shot on my Z10.

    well, after doing some analysis using the 10.1 MR on a Z10, I think you're right. And, once again, I have hope that they haven't gone with a 720 x 1280 resolution.

    i set my font size to 5 (smallest I could) and tried to reproduce the pic. I can get a max of about 7 line items on my 1280 screen. Michael seems to have room for about 10. Strangely, it doesn't really seem wider though, or maybe it's a spacing thing.Screen shot from Z30 hub-img_00000040.jpg

    Doing the simple math, it looks like it could be 1920 lines vertical (1880 if looking at my inexact 7:10 ratio).

    looking at it again, it does seem wider. The icons on the bottom bar seem "smaller" on Michael's pic, but they're likely the same size pixel-wise, so, yes, wider resolution too.

    Stop over analyzing things guys, easiest giveaway : the status bar on his hub.

    Blue for LED screens and Black for LCDs.

    we're not discussing whether or not it's an A-series (at least I'm not), we're discussing the resolution on the screenshot.

    Then, my bad. Hope it is 1080p.
    Difficult to tell from the low res screenshot, nice work, guys.

    You cannot tell because they can change elements to be smaller as it is going to be on a big screen. The best way to use a big screen at the same resolution or smaller as a smaller screen is to shrink elements

    There are rumors 2 or 3 A10 variations are being tested right now. Differences between the variations include screen resolution so no one really knows what will be shipped.

    from the images i've seen and the fact that BB set their icon size for BB10 before at if i recall 114x114 pixels which isn't including the bubbles around just the image then the leaked images and videos show a screen resolution that is larger then the 720p that folks think and the nay sayers can say an app can't be made bigger but they can suck **** because its been done many times before and is is done on desktops all the time.

    someone once argued about how the Q10 may have different sizing but from what i can tell between my Z10 and my dads Q10 its just the spacing that was messed around with

    I doubt this. If it is coming early fall then they won't have time to do such thing

    who said early fall, they said for the holiday season, could be late fall for all we know

    The differences will be radio related.

    Needs to be released by September to allow for America's only-country-on-planet-earth insane 2+ month carrier testing.

    This needs to be in stores, on American shelves by "Black Friday" (day after Thanksgiving) since that is the biggest buying weekend for Christmas presents in the states.

    This means it needs to be launched within the first week of fall to be tested and on store shelves by November 29th (Black Friday) .

    This is true. We won't know what we get until we see it

    They won't have time based on what exactly?

    I've heard there were multiple versions as well.

    Based on the process of testing, carrier testing, field testing and whatever else. Why would they do that for 3 versions of a phone? Wasteful much?

    I hope that these different types of A10s rumoured some with 4 rows some with 5 means that the A10 will indeed come in 1080p. This screen shot does seem to point to some hope.

    I don't think there will be multiple versions. I think the difference is the software. Meaning only now are we seeing how the 5 inch real estate is really used. Initially what we saw (with the 4 rows of icons) was a pre tweaked a10.

    I'm on the fence right now when it comes to getting an A10 based on the current leaked specs. If it comes out with a 1080P screen and Quad core processor I'll be all over it. Just wish it came with 32GB of internal storage plus expandable memory. Games really chew up the free space and it seems like 16GB internal just isn't enough any more.

    Anyways really hope a 1080p display is in the works for the A10, I think it would really help in the sales of the device.

    icon sizes haven't changed still the same pixel size its always been as far as i can see. if 10.2 made the icons smaller just for the A10 things on the Q10 and Z10 would be more cluttered and harder to press with your thumb.

    while the A10 may be a higher resolution which would make the icons aprear smaller the screen is also larger stretching out the area a bit more to make it easier.

    The A10 might not be done(engineering). They have three or more variations since they are still testing quadcore, dualcore and octacore processors in the A10 and 4.65 and 5 inch versions of the phone.
