Ahead of the launch of its latest BlackBerry operating system, RIM's newest smartphone device is showcased

Blackberry Z10 unveiled, mirrors iPhone 5

Whilst RIM is set to announce its latest BlackBerry 10 operating system later this month, details of the new device set to run it have been revealed.

German site TelekomPresse has gotten its hands on the BlackBerry Z10, a touchscreen smartphone that is particularly similar to Apple’s iPhone 5.

In a demonstration video, the tech site shows off the Z10 and its Siri-like voice control functionality, which parallels the Siri technology used on the iPhone 5 in both form and function.

Initial impressions of the two devices show a number of differences, with the Z10 packing a 4.2-inch screen that belittles the four-inch display of the iPhone.

Meanwhile, both devices place a power button on the top of its frame, whilst volume controls are placed on opposite sides of the devices.

Unlike the iPhone, which has often been criticised for its limited connectivity options, the Z10 incorporates both USB and HDMI connection on the left side of its frame.

Check out the video below to take a look at the BlackBerry Z10 and how it measures up against Apple’s flagship iPhone 5.
