Only a few days after its touchscreen sibling made a couple of appearances, RIM's BlackBerry N-Series smartphone emerged in a duo of live photos. The soon to be revealed BlackBerry 10 smartphone packs a hardware QWERTY keyboard in addition to its capacitive touchscreen.
As you can see in the photos above, the BlackBerry N-Series looks a lot like the currently offered Bold 9900, save for the lack of navigation and menu buttons, which have given way to a larger screen. The QWERTY appears to be unsurprisingly well-made and comfortable, so the BlackBerry purists should have a good reason to look forward to the device.
The BlackBerry N-Series is all but certain to launch alongside the BlackBerry Z10 on January 30 in New York City. We will update you should we hear more about the upcoming device.
