These have been published on the technology news website TechSuplex, from a source on Twitter and before the Tweets were deleted.
The website states: “Someone off the twitterverse posted some images of the soon to be released L-series probably undergoing carrier testing in Nigeria and now we bring them to you.”
“He does mention a few new details along with the pictures, like a boot time of 8 seconds (Wow right? We have our doubts too) and also the included VPN feature”, added the site.
Mobile phone online news title Pocket Now noted – “RIM announced the changes to its icon design standards on the BlackBerry developer blog a little under two weeks ago. It decided to move from 150 x 150 icons to the more petite 114 x 114 you see here, offering a slightly less cluttered look.”
At the start of the month, Omio caught up with RIM at a press event in London for the latest airing of the upcoming BlackBerry 10 OS, which features on the handset in these photos.
We have now published a hands-on review of the platform, with a thorough set of pictures that support these leaked shots.
