Leaked images from the new keyboard Blackberry looks promising with reservations.

As the January 30th reveal of the new Blackberry 10 devices reaches closer, expect a lot of leaks and rumors of the hotly anticipated devices. One of the most concrete ones we’ve had lately is this pretty clear set of images from the upcoming QWERTY device apparently titled the X10.

N4BB.com has hold of these exclusive images, which pretty much show a near-final product in full view. The product will be launched alongside their full touch Z10 device, and the X10 here looks promising but there are some things that could be refined. For example, they keyboard could be closer to the Blackberry 9900 keyboard for best results.

I like the fact that the buttons have been done away with for more real estate, but the icons are needlessly big which leads to only 8 of them on screen at a time which is quite low. Hopefully that’s something that can be customized.

The back cover is a little bit disappointing considering the Z10 back looks absolutely amazing, but keep in mind that this is not the final device and any of these things could drastically change in the retail version that will be unveiled.

Which Blackberry will you opt for? The full touch Z10 or this keyboard X10?

    Not bad looking, but what is it about this device that’s going to revive RIM?
