When I first saw the leaked image of the supposed BlackBerry 10 device, the L-Series (the touchscreen model, with no physical keyboard), I said to myself, damn, that looks familiar. After a few seconds, it hit me, the BB10 device, codenamed London or the L-Series, looks just like a device made by Motorola last year, the DROID X2, minus the physical buttons for the Android OS.
I quickly did a Google image search and I found a front shot of the DROID X2 and compared it to the BlackBerry 10 L-Series (above). Look closely and you too will see more than just a mere coincdence. RIM’s design even uses the different colored or “matte plastic” pieces on the top and bottom, like the DROID X and X2. I’m honestly very surprised that no one has called RIM out on this egregious error.
This has to be the worst case of device coping that I’ve since Samsung “borrowed” the idea of the Galaxy S from the iPhone 3G. With many “techies” giving Apple hell over their maps app and slamming Nokia for its faked Lumia 920 ad, I’m really surprised that many of them haven’t already jumped on the RIM bashing wagon and called them out on this picture.
What do you think? Is the L-Series BB10 look just like the DROID X2? Let us know in the poll below.
