With BlackBerry 10 and its associated devices slated to be released early next year,  news and leaks keep hitting the Internet with increased frequency. Last week a BlackBerry 10 L-Series image made the rounds and now this weekend we get treated to an alleged image of N-Series keyboard parts.

Immediately one change that is noticeable is the elimination of a curved keyboard that previous QWERTY BlackBerry devices have sported.  Which makes sense considering a curved physical keyboard takes real estate that could otherwise be used for a larger display or be consolidated for smaller form factor.

For BlackBerry users out there, are you likely to go with touchscreen or QWERTY keyboard?
