BlackBerry L picture leaked, shows BB10 app launcher

Research In Motion (RIM) may still be some way off releasing its new BlackBerry 10 phones and tablets but behind closed doors it is showing off its new wears, and inevitably this has lead to some pictures leaking out.

The latest shows what appears to be a full touchscreen device, similar in design to the ‘London’ that was first leaked way back in November last year. Crucially, though, is shows what the app launcher of BB10 may look like.

The image clearly shows apps for all the usual phone stuff, like contacts and calendar, as well as StoryMaker (apparently to do with video editing) and DocsToGo. The style isn’t exactly revolutionary but it looks clean and smart enough.

RIM has confirmed that the first launch device will be from the ‘L’ series so this is the closest glimpse yet of what the new BlackBerry will look like.

We’ve already seen some of the key features of BlackBerry 10, such as the keyboard and email client, which you can read more about in our BlackBerry 10 hands on. Beyond that, we’re hoping to see more at its BlackBerry Jam event later this month.
