BlackBerry 10 L-Series May Launch As BlackBerry Z10


When it comes to upcoming BlackBerry hardware, we’ve heard a lot of names thrown around. Besides codenames for individual devices, we’ve seen these models referred to by type, mainly as the L-series with its full-touch design, and the N-series with hardware keyboards. As January 30 looms just over the horizon, a new leak suggets that the first L-series model will arrive as the BlackBerry Z10.

Sourced from some RIM marketing materials, and provided by very reliable tipster evleaks, this leak shows both a white and black version of the Z10, though even the white version isn’t without a black bezel. It all sure looks legit, with that white-text-on-black-rectangle design mirroring the invitations RIM recently distributed.

We also get some info about how the first N-series model could launch, possibly arriving as the BlackBerry X10. For now though, that tidbit arrives with much less certainty than the Z10 news, and without the corresponding graphic to back it up.

What do you think? Is a new naming strategy a smart move for RIM with the BlackBerry 10 launch, or are you still a fan of the old arrangement? Though, to be fair, after releasing 9900-series models, RIM had to either add a new digit or think up something new.
