BlackBerry Z10 reportedly set to be unveiled as first BlackBerry 10 smartphone NDTV Gadgets: Twitter user @evleaks has done it again. The subject of the latest leak is the much-awaited BlackBerry 10 smartphone.

According to @evleaks, RIM plans to ditch 4 digit names (like BlackBerry Curve 9300) and call the forthcoming full-touch BlackBerry 10 smartphone the 'BlackBerry Z10'. So far we've known this phone as the BlackBerry L-series smartphone. @evleaks further states that the BlackBerry Z10 will be available in black and white colour options.

@evleaks also mentioned that the QWERTY BlackBerry 10 device, expected to be unveiled later next year, might be called the BlackBerry X10.

As the January 30 launch date draws closer, we've seen several leaks, but this is the first time we've heard an official name for the phone being mentioned. We've also heard rumours that RIM plans to release two BlackBerry 10 smartphones on launch, so it'll be interesting to see if details of the second device pop-up in the near future.
