Latest BlackBerry Dev Alpha Update Contains Hardware Pics, Demo Videos


As RIM gets itself ready for its big BlackBerry 10 launch event (less than two months to go), it continues to fine-tune the software its developer community has been running on their Dev Alpha devices. The latest update to arrive contains a few resources that give us some nice new looks at RIM’s upcoming BlackBerry 10 hardware.

BlackBerry enthusiast Mujib Azizi has been posting his finds to Twitter all day, and he’s stumbled across some nice pics and video. We get a very high-resolution image of an unknown BB10 handset, featuring a textured rear surface. This looks like the same phone featured in a teaser image RIM released a few days back, only at the time the hardware was mostly obscured by shadows.

There are also some short demo videos that Azizi dug up, featuring RIM’s hardware renders and showing a little of how we’ll interact with the BB10 UI. He’s already shared one on YouTube, embedded below.

We know, none of this speaks to whether or not RIM’s big BB10 venture will see the success the company needs it to, but we’ll take any excuse to check out some unreleased smartphone hardware.
