If there's one company that's perfected the art of ruining surprises, it's BlackBerry. We've known for quite a while that RIM is all set to showcase its new range of BlackBerry 10 smartphones at an event in New York on January 30. One of the smartphones that the company is expected to unveil is the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 smartphone.
In the past couple of months, we've already seen plenty of leaked images and videos of BlackBerry Z10. The latest one piling on to the list of countless leaks comes in the form of a 7-minute hands-on video posted on Austrian publication Telekom-Presse.
The video features a complete lo down on the device's hardware with the narrator listing out the various specs of the BlackBerry Z10 including a 4.2-inch HD display, 8-megapixel rear and 1.9-megapixel front cameras, a dual-core 1.5GHz ARM Cortex A9 processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
According to the video, the Z10 weighs about 125 grams and is running on the new BB10 OS that seems to offer a smooth user experience as demonstrated by the user while making swipe gestures to reveal the BlackBerry Hub.
The site has also posted a second video shot at night highlighting the Z10's video recording capabilities along with images that seem to have been taken with the smartphone's camera highlighting the difference in image quality when compared to the iPhone 5. Other images include screenshots of the device's software such as the BlackBerry Hub, home screen and more.
The rumours began way back in September last year with RIM deciding launch 6 BlackBerry 10 devices featuring the company's new OS. Then came pictures and a video of the device followed by reports in December that the BlackBerry Z10 will be unveiled as the first BlackBerry 10 smartphone.
More recently, images posted by Rapidberry, allegedly show retail shots of the forthcoming BlackBerry Z10 smartphone in both black and white colour options. Interestingly, one screenshot also reveals that the BlackBerry Z10 will be available for 799 Canadian dollars.
