BlackBerry Balance BlackBerry Z10 leak

It's been a little over a week since our last BlackBerry 10 leak, and while that may not sound like much, it could be considered a bit of a drought considering how frequently RIM's new OS and hardware have been showing up as of late. Luckily for BlackBerry fans, that drought is one that's ending today. Rapid Berry has posted what appear to be promotional images meant to highlight new features of BlackBerry 10, including the new keyboard and BlackBerry Hub. The shots also offer several views of the full-touch BlackBerry Z10 in both black and white.

While the promo images don't really offer up any new information on either the Z10 or BlackBerry 10 itself, they do offer a nice refresher of the features that are coming in BB10 and what the first smartphone running the OS will look like. CrackBerry notes that these images use an older BlackBerry 10 icon set and likely aren't very recent, adding that they were probably just quickly thrown together to give an idea of how the phones and software will look. Still, we'll take whatever peeks at BlackBerry 10 that we can get, and these images will help to sustain many folks until BlackBerry 10's big launch event on Jan. 30. Several more images can be found at the Rapid Berry link at the bottom of this post.

UPDATE: Rapid Berry has shared another BlackBerry 10 leak, and this time we're getting a very brief peek at what the OS's BBM video chat functionality might look like in action. The video is said to have come from the latest version of the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha OS that was recently pushed to developers. The clip is available below.
