As we suspected, Research In Motion might not be ditching the QWERTY keyboard after all. CrackBerry leaked a photo of what may be one of RIM’s first BlackBerry 10 devices, the BlackBerry Milan, on Wednesday. The Milan will no doubt sport a touchscreen display — there isn’t a touchpad in sight — but there aren’t any other specs available just yet. Additionally, RIM appears to have omitted the send/end call keys that have been used on BlackBerry smartphones as far back as we can remember. The keyboard looks a bit more narrow than what’s currently offered on RIM’s BlackBerry Torch 2 smartphone, but the touchscreen looks a big taller, too. It’s unclear when the Milan will finally make its debut, but it could launch alongside the BlackBerry London — a second device rumored to run the new BlackBerry 10 operating system. RIM’s BBX operating system, designed for both tablets and smartphones, was renamed BlackBerry 10 on Wednesday
