Official specs for the BlackBerry 10 L-Series have leaked, courtesy of TechRadar, who took a peek at RIM presentation slides meant to inform sales representatives about the capabilities of the device. Also known as the BlackBerry Z10, the all-touch L-Series will reportedly feature a 4.2-inch screen with a 1280x768 display, 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, and an 1,800mAh battery, a 2MP front camera, an 8MP back camera, single LED flash with auto focus, and 1080p digital recording with 5x digital zoom. The new report almost exactly mirrors rumored specs, aside from a minor difference in the amount of onboard RAM.
The L-Series will launch alongside the X10 and N-Series, which carry a traditional keypad, on January 30th. Notably, "The BlackBerry London will be the only non-4G variant with support for 21Mbps HSPA+, while the BlackBerry Laguna, BlackBerry Lisbon and BlackBerry Liverpool will all feature LTE technology," according to the TechRadar
The BlackBerry 10 will be backed by Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile as Research in Motion makes its last stand against Samsung and Apple. RIM is making a significant push on the app front and Enterprise business as well, as CMO Frank promises 70,000 apps, including most of the top apps around, available to BlackBerry 10 users when the gadget ships, according to Fierce Wireless.
Company spokesman Rich Manning told the Los Angeles Times, "We think the [1000 company] registrations are an interesting barometer of broader interest in BlackBerry 10 in the enterprise sector,"
