Purported Photo Of New BlackBerry Phone With QWERTY Keyboard Leaks

Posted: Updated:

YAHOO.COM - Research In Motion (RIMM) CEO Thorsten Heins recently said during the company's Q3 earnings call that BlackBerry 7 is still a "strong success" in the Asian-Pacific markets. Despite the company putting most of its weight behind BlackBerry 10 and the Z10 and X10, Heins said RIM will continue supporting BB7 and consumers "might expect us to even build one of the other new products" based on it.

Heins suggested on the earnings call new BB7 phones will target entry-level markets with lower price points over its BB10 devices; now, MobileSyrup has posted a photo of a mystery BlackBerry phone sitting next to the BB10-powered Z10 and X10. Could this HTC (2498) Status/ChaCha look-alike be a new BB7 smartphone? It could be, but then again, it could also be a prototype that will never be released or another new BB10-powered QWERTY phone.
