Friday Fun Photo(shop) - BlackBerry London Box?

By Adam Zeis on 27 Apr 2012 10:42 am EDT

Friday Fun Photo - Is this the BlackBerry London??

2012 BlackBerry London

Take this for what you will, but forums member czhy6618 has posted up the above image of what claims to be the 2012 BlackBerry London. We're thinking this is more of a Photoshop than an actual retail box, but you be the judge. In case you don't already know, the BlackBerry London is the codename for the first BBX BlackBerry 10 device we saw way back in November. The image here does look pretty darn close to the original photo leaked phot0, so we're not really sold that it's totally legit. 

Check it out, analyze it then drop a comment with your thoughts. Don't forget, BlackBerry World 2012 is only a few days away so hopefully we'll have plenty of BlackBerry 10 fun to report in the next week :-)

That looks... Way to easy to photoshop on a box. It doesn't even show the real phone.

Like.. This is something I could do with Microsoft Paint.


Also, "London" is a predevelopment code name. They wouldn't have that written on the box!


Meh, I guess it could be the developer phones that are being handed out. Old design, relevant software. Would make a bit of sense.


Definitely photoshopped!


Fake. Not buyin it. But the buzz it generates is fun.


I think they wrapped a shoe box with grey paper with a London pic photochopped in. I hope this is what the real phone looks like when released though because it is very different looking than the competition.


I don't want to see an iClone. I think it needs a mofe ergonomic design. Think an improved 9860 design mixed with the original design. Do that, and you've got one sexy phone. Not as sexy as the BlackBerry Blade concept, but sexy either way you look at it.


Pure photoshop.Top right right image of the phone isn't even cropped properly, but it is on the other images.


Looks like an Iphone box.

I would have been more believable if they took a picture of a black box.


Even though it is photoshoped , you have to appreciate the effort this guy went through , definately a true blackberry fan ..


I'd take any shop or not :)


it is not real... not with the font used on the "London" text. But still nice to look at.


RIM would've packaged it in a sexy black matte box :)


The thing looks all flat and has no dimension...also if memory serves me right the branding guidelines state that you can't change the color of the logo, that is a big red herring too. Either its all black on a light background or all white in a dark background. Also, i've never seen a HUGE RIM logo on any of the boxes for any bb device. Finally,the square bb logo on the back doesn't feel right, especially next to that barcode that could be no more a code for a box of store brand cereal. Maybe it was a design student's hw. Nice try, good effort, but you can't fool me!


Looks odd. In addition, it appears to be displaying the back of the phone instead of the front.

the brother

this is the box for the dev units being handed out next week in FL. how did y'all get these pics?


Why would someone go through all that work to produce a fake picture. Maybe I dunno what i'm lookin at. Who knows, but either way we're in for a treat. I prefer surprises anyway.


wow. me soiled me pantalon!


It has been stated before, but the image at the top right doesn't seen to be aligned straight. What day of the week does it say on the phones screen; 12:05 Infiday? I'm sure if I had a higher resolution screen on my BB-I could tell.



I can see this showing up on BGR stating a leaked or reliable source sending them a photo. LOL


Its the redesigned Porche phone photo shopped


That looks pretty fake...


I can't be bothered with rumours no more. I'm waiting for blackberry world 201e


"It looks shopped, I can tell by the pixels and I've seen a lot of shops in my time."




I would love to see the Blackberry Blade packaged and ready to ship , thats the phone i want. not this stretched stop sign one.


It's horrendously done just from a design/layout standpoint, and BB packaging is generally very nice.

I suspect this is for a KIRFy knockoff.


maybe its the alpha device


Looks like a beer can to me


Pipe down.
At least he got you all talking.


New Coke Zero can?...


It could be the limited edition for VIP and officials at the London Olympics which is coming up in 90 days.


It's not real. Just my two cents. I HAVE TO SEE IT. :D
