RIM has had its fair share of struggles lately without a doubt, but that hasn't seemed to quell the production of the Blackberry L-series. The handset resurfaced again, as new photos were unveiled showing off what will be one of the first handsets to run on RIM's new operating system BlackBerry 10.
In a previous statement, RIM announced that one of the phones it is working on will have a 1280 x 768 resolution -- it would appear that this BlackBerry handset, which goes by the codename "London", is that device.
Unfortunately this new leak has not revealed a great depth of information. Still, the photo does show evidence that the device will come with a detachable back-plate, which would suggest a fully removable battery. It is also important to note that the handset still has a serial number on it, indicating the device is likely a test unit, and thus subject to future change.
The upcoming launch of RIM's new operating system, BlackBerry 10, will be vital for the company's survival. A successful launch of the OS could help re-establish the company within the industry and make it relevant once again. As one of the first smartphones to adopt the new OS, the launch of the London is equally important. While a hard date has yet to be set, consumers can expect the handset to hit shelves sometime early 2013.
