We recently told you that the very first Blackberry OS 10 running device is most likely to be an entire touch slab and ditch the famous qwerty form factor that we have come to associate with the Blackberry manufactured smart phones. However the folks at Crackberry who are usually spot on with their information have designed or rendered the images using the information and very calculative guesses how the first BB 10 device sporting a qwerty keyboard look like. This is what they believe would be the device:
The image above has been rendered by John Anastasiadis who explains his creation here:
“Above is my vision for the next full keyboard BB10 phone. In white just for you, Kevin!
I designed around the 9900 keyboard and kept to the most likely scenario regarding height, width and depth of the device. BlackBerry’s have traditionally been organic with soft edges but I believe the new BB10 devices will be more angular with crisp surface transitions. This will allow RIM to break from the past and reinvent the brand with a new aesthetic. Think P’9981 crossed with 9900.
You will notice that the front and side profiles are slightly tapered toward the bottom. This allows the keyboard area to be a comfortable gripping size while maximizing screen size. Also, the black rubberized sides help the user hold and grip the device securely. The reflection of the side view on the back of the device shows how thin it really is.
It’s important to note that this concept is an attempt to capture what the next phone will most likely be. A realistic approach in the sense that it could be introduced today.”
What are your views on the device and BB10 in general? Do let us know.
