More and more info are being leaked about RIM’s forthcoming products. Blackberry 10 QWERTY N series pictures were leaked, following BB Z10 leaks. Both will come with great features

BlackBerry 10 rumors and leaks are making great impact over the Research in Motion stocks weeks before its launch in the market. Ontario, Canada based RIM is preparing to unveil its upgraded BB10 OS in the market on 30th January and expectations of a revival in company’s fortunes are very high.

Company’s stocks touched as high as $15, its highest in more than six months. The way it is on an upswing seems to indicate a good turnaround in the smart-phone manufacturer’s fortunes. Every leak is leading to new surge in its stock and most of the market analysts have said that RIM stocks are positive in both short and long term.

On the other hand, Apple seems to be passing through one of the worst days in years as its stock value is falling rapidly. It is down around 23 percent since its highest point reached mid September last year immediately after the launch of iPhone 5. But as iPhone 5’s demand failed to keep up with the expectations and iPad 4 too failed to impress both the users and manufacturers. Its stock on Tuesday slumped to its lowest point in around a year to $485.

Meanwhile a new BlackBerry handset running on BB10 OS has been leaked to the media. Reports suggest that BlackBerry X10, a QWERTY handset may be unveiled during Research in Motion’s media event slated to be held on January 30th. Reports suggest that the handset seems to be a full touchscreen, and also features a full QWERTY keyboard.

This is amazing as to how fast Research in Motion’s new handsets are being leaked to the media. Merely days ago photographs of another BlackBerry handset, BlackBerry Z10 donned the home pages of many news portals and blogs. BlackBerry Z10 is completely touchscreen. The other two phones have full QWERTY keyboards. The BlackBerry X10 has a striking resemblance to HTC’s full QWERTY phone – the HTC ChaCha. The company seems to be very excited about the new products, but it is still keeping its forthcoming handsets a closely guarded secret.
