It seems that Research In Motion aims to get back its share of the market, and it may come in the release of a new BlackBerry device that will be dubbed as the BlackBerry R10.

Images of the upcoming device were leaked recently into the net, and this device may be a low-priced version of the BlackBerry Q10. The images initially emerged on DGtle, a China-based website. It showed the familiar keyboard of a BlackBerry device. However, it does not feature the premium design of the BlackBerry Q10.

The images appear to show a device made of plastic instead of the fiber glass-plastic material used on the BlackBerry Q10.

The BlackBerry R10 features a back plate that appears to be glossy and has a more pronounced rectangular design. Reports have also indicated that the upcoming device will use the new BlackBerry 10 software, which means that it may not be a huge downgrade for the upcoming device.  The chiseled typing surfaces of the QWERTY keys of the BlackBerry Q10 may be step up from the rather shallow design of the previous Blackberry devices.

The launch of the reported BlackBerry R10 remains to unconfirmed although some reports have hinted at the possibility that it may be unveiled during the BlackBerry Live event. Some industry watchers are anticipating the release of new tablet devices by RIM. However the statements of Thorsten Heins, the CEO of the company, have pre-empted such expectations.

It may be possible for the company to have some partnerships with app developers or some Android apps may be ported into the BlackBerry 10 OS. However, the BlackBerry Live event may also see the launch of the reported BlackBerry R10.
