BlackBerry 10 L Series Handsets Caught on Camera, Differences Between London and Laguna Models Spotted

And then there’s a comparison with the iPhone 5, that reminds me of a Motorola Droid RAZR compared to the Apple handset, for some reason. I wonder what the level of brightness on the BB phone was, since the iPhone seems much brighter… Anyway, it’s nice to see international and US versions of the first BB 10 OS devices being prepared for debut, that will go down at the end of January 2013.
This will usher us into a new era, an era where Android and iOS aren’t the only players anymore and where Windows Phone has a reason to be afraid of losing third spot. Does BB 10 OS convince you? It did convince us and the designs of the new BlackBerries aren’t that bad, either. Now let’s see the prices…
