RIM's BlackBerry 10 'L-Series' and 'N-Series' Smartphones

Research In Motion's (RIM) first BlackBerry 10 smartphones won't be available until early 2013, but if you seek a cutting-edge device with a full QWERTY "hardware" keyboard or you just want something brand new and different, one—or both--of the BlackBerry devices could be just right for you. RIM plans to release an all-touch "L-Series" smartphone first, followed shortly behind by a full QWERTY "N-Series" handset. (Read more about the first two BlackBerry 10 devices.)

Availability: No pricing details; Q1 2013 is the expected release date for the first two devices.

Notable Features iPhone 5 Lacks: Brand new software; removable batteries; and, on select devices, a "physical" BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard.
