Following a fresh bunch of glorious (and unofficial) BlackBerry 10 L-Series photos showing up on the web (a video too), we fired up our podcasting machine yesterday to discuss and drool over them together.

We had a big crew for this one, and a lot to talk about. Simon Sage gave us his debrief on BlackBerry Jam Asia. Chris Umiastowski talked about shares of RIM breaking above $13. Bla1ze was blazed. Adam was podcasting this one a finger short thanks to an unfortnuate snowblower accident. As usual, I talked too much. We covered a lot of stuff. And we had Rene Ritchie there to keep us all honest and (somewhat) on track.

This is the CrackBerry Podcast. The #1 Freak'n BlackBerry Podcast in the WORLDDDD!!! So listen up. NOW!

I chuckled VERY hard when I read the Bla1ze comment.

He was just tired.

Very, very tired. And probably hungry, very very hungry.

Normally people say downloading now. This time: watching now.

"Drooling?"
The L-Series phone looks nice. Kinda disappointed it's mostly plastic like android phones. Also not a fan of that bottom lip. Coming from a BB 9930 this L-Series is also a bit too large for me. Will wait for a smaller BB10 touchscreen device.

You wanted RIM to make a gold plated phone? Come on man! Plus it's not plastic! It's hardened rubber or something not plastic...

Also, someone gave a good possible explanation of why the bottom lip is there. It's because it makes your thumb be in a more natural position.

Either way, it's of course your choice!

sk8er_tor

They should have made it out of titanium.

cjcampbell

That'll be the premium priced Porsche version....lol

My theory on the lip around the screen is to protect the screen when you drop it. The glass can't make contact on the froind unless it hits a rock or a high point in a curved surface. Just my thoughts on it.

I completely agree with you, this is RIMs flagship/halo device. The minimum build quality/feel of this device should be on par wit the 9900 if not higher. Still a good looking device though.

All plastics aren't equal. Don't knock it until you touch it!

Eating subway, while watching this.
Pure awesome.

Kevin Michaluk

You're eating a subway? Doesn't that hurt your teeth? So much steel.

r0v3rT3N

Hahaha, sorry I was eating Subway (a type of submarine)!
Also, I was wondering if you think that the leaks were planned with the ad's that were released the next morning?

A Crackberry podcast - these days less seen than a N series prototype! We missed ya guys!

MozThaGreat

I 100% agree with the app conversation here. I was beating up in a previous post cause I wanted Netflix and Skype. I want my cake and to eat it too without jumping ship.

I want to see a better preview of what RIM has in store for BB10 NOW. We already know what the L-Series looks like, so lets see some apps!!

Rootbrian

I think once the android player is perfected, skype can be sideloaded. :D

stevepar

So much fun to watch you guys!! BB10Believe

BTW the World cant end, I bought 400 more shares today :-)

Shanerredflag

Yup...enjoyable for sure. FYI...Throw The Knife is just a ton of fun, blood format all the way.

aha

Apps at launch is the key.

Plazmic Flame

Why did Rene have a laptop with just Adam on it? Is he the troublemaker of the group? LOLOL!

DCMMID

LTE was brought up quickly then dropped. Will BB10 have the ability to offer voice and data simultaneously? On Verizon? That would differentiate BB from i5 within CDMA carriers.

Rootbrian

CDMA can't do voice and data at the same time... Not until either EVDO Rev. B or C.

samvel2001

How about SKYPE again SKYPE SKYPE SKYPE SKYPE

Rootbrian

Not until microsoft makes the app for blackberry 10.

MozThaGreat

Was I the only one who loved the original London design? It looked liked a full touch screen P'9981. I thought that design was so avant-garde for a BB. Nothing else on the market looks like it.

i personally hated that design. then again i never saw it in person. the l-series look works for me, as i like a more 'professional' looking phone. one of the main reasons i never left blackberry. also, one of the main reasons i really like the look of the iphone 5.

As good as this was watching it live yesterday, the best part was seeing Bla1ze chuckling at all the chatroll comments about his . . . ummmmmm . . . state of mind.

Visine? We don't need no steenkin Visine!

Skeevecr

That whole stuff about wanting to see leaks of what apps are coming was a little bit clueless, it would not build enough hype 6 weeks away from launch to offset the lack of being able to use them nearer to jan 30th.

Jimmypage

Hey Blaize, you shouldn't let people see you spending spending your welfare money on booze, you're giving the other bums a bad name! Seriously Kevin, the guy is an embarrassment!

Rootbrian

Bla1ze isn't on government assistance.

ctuffy

Thanks for the information. I enjoyed watching the podcast (and Bla1ze is a cutie).

Rootbrian

DAMN! A MISSING FINGER?!!? :(
Hopefully it can grow back!
