Leaked video shows RIM's new BlackBerry 10 handset in action

RIM logoThe January 30 launch date of the new BlackBerry 10 operating system is quickly approaching, and there's no shortage of leaks to help ramp up the hype. Earlier this week, Vietnamese technology blog Tinhte.vn published high-quality images of the BlackBerry 10 L-series, and now the blog has published a video of the new handset in action.

In the video, the device is shown with a revamped user interface and multitasking capabilities. The L-series smartphone—previously referred to by its codename "London"—looks somewhat similar to the iPhone 5 with its rounded corners, shiny bezel, and matte back. It also features a removable 1,800mAh battery, which seems rather small for a dual-core Snapdragon S4 based on the battery life of Android phones with similar specifications.

РSpy shots of the L-series handset laid side-by-side next to a white iPhone 5 had surfaced earlier last month. The photo was posted by India-based BlackBerry fan site BBin and showed it with the same 4.2-inch, 1280x768 resolution display. It was also rumored to feature 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD expansion slot, NFC, and an LED flash on the back.
