Officially, Research In Motion(s rimm) isn't taking the wraps off of any new BlackBerry smartphones until next month. Unofficially, and somewhat typically these days, you can get an early look at the reported new BlackBerry L-series phone and operating system. A hands-on video from a Vietnamese site appeared Wednesday on YouTube(s goog), showing off a thin phone that takes design cues from Apple's iPhone(s aapl).
Research in Motion has kept their newest operating system and hardware support - collectively known as BB10 - under tight wraps. But the leaks have finally started happening, and from what we can see so far, everything looks very sleek and modern - on the hardware side, at least. It'll be interesting to keep tabs on how RIM fares in the future, with increased competition from Apple, Android, and Windows Phone.
