Latest BlackBerry 10 Pics Show New Icon Designs

Advertisement

Yesterday we got a look at the hardware keyboard that should grace RIM’s upcoming N-series BlackBerry 10 handset. We’re still waiting for the opportunity to see a fully-assembled N-series phone, but in the meantime we have some new pics of the platform running on RIM’s L-series hardware, showing off some changes to BlackBerry icon design.

RIM announced the changes to its icon design standards on the BlackBerry developer blog a little under two weeks ago. It decided to move from 150 x 150 icons to the more petite 114 x 114 you see here, offering a slightly less cluttered look.

Though the original Twitter posts containing these images have since been removed, supposedly the poster had included claims that the handset could cold boot in just about eight seconds, a pretty impressive figure if accurate.

It may still be too early to get excited, but we’ve been getting the sense lately that the BlackBerry 10 launch may not be the underwhelming death throes we were fearing just a few months ago. We’ll have to wait until early 2013 to pass judgment, but so far, at least, what we’ve seen doesn’t look half bad.
