BlackBerry 10 Lock Screen

Photos of RIM's first handset that will run BlackBerry 10 -- the company's next operating system, which is scheduled for release in early 2013 -- landed on a Vietnamese forum this week. If the 18 photos of the device on tinhte.vn are to be believed, the L-Series, codenamed BlackBerry London, looks quite similar to Apple's iPhone 5.

The BlackBerry-branded device in the photos has a rectangular touchscreen with a black bezel along the top and bottom of it, a la the iPhone 5. Watch the video above to learn more. In the photos, the device is powered off, so we don't get a peek at the OS, but you can see BlackBerry 10 running on a different touchscreen device, in the slideshow below.
