For all you BlackBerry fans who love the classic QWERTY smartphone RIM knows how to build very well, will be happy to see some more images of the upcoming BlackBerry X10. The pictures show off the device and also confirm that the device is headed to Verizon.

RIM is holding their BlackBerry 10 media event on Jan. 30 and will officially unveil the shipping version of BlackBerry 10 OS and new smartphones. It is widely believed that RIM will announce two smartphones at the event, the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 and the touchscreen, QWERTY-equipped BlackBerry X10. RIM is expected to initially launch the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 smartphone and follow up by releasing the QWERTY BlackBerry X10 about 4 to 6 weeks later.

Most BlackBerry enthusiasts were hoping both devices would be launched at the same time since the iconic, four-row QWERTY keyboard is what RIM is known for. However, this decision might not have been made by RIM; it could be carriers wanting to see what the initial demand is for BlackBerry 10 OS and the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone before they commit themselves in offering another BlackBerry 10 smartphone - the BlackBerry X10. But RIM could also surprise everyone and announce on Jan. 30 that both devices will launch simultaneously. If that's not the case, a 4 to 6 week isn't too long of a wait to get your fingers on that QWERTY-equipped BlackBerry 10 smartphone.

The leaked pictures show off the new BlackBerry 10 home screen and BlackBerry 10 app launcher. They also reveal that this device is running on Verizon's network, so it's pretty safe to assume Verizon will be offering both the BlackBerry Z10 and the BlackBerry X10. We'll know all the concrete details when RIM takes the stage on Jan. 30. We'll be covering the launch as it happens.
