Images have started to show up online of a new BlackBerry 10 prototype phone. These images shown are unlike any BlackBerry we've seen recently. The images show a squashed physical keyboard with three rows of keys and square screen.
Rumors flow in all different directions of what the phone's actual purpose is. Some say it is the actual Windermere Q30 phone, some say it's a Dev Alpha D phone for developers, others say it's a prototype for a "large partner" but it will only see the light of day if the unmentioned partner goes ahead with the idea.
I have a difficult time believing that this is an unaltered image other than the obvious blacked out parts. This image has to be altered for size as well. I can't see BlackBerry changing their classic keyboard, especially since they're in a court battle with Typo that deals with keyboard style infringement.
Let us know what you think about these images in the comments below. And what you think it really is and what BlackBerry is thinking.
