[Anandtech.com] BlackBerry London Image Leaked: The First QNX Phone
First reported by The Verge and subsequently confirmed by Boy Genius Report, the first image of BlackBerry's first BBX phone has leaked, and it is a significant departure from their past design langauge. The London mirrors the design of the recent Porsche Designs collaboration, the P'9981, but omitting the QWERTY keyboard. This phone replaces the previously planned BlackBerry Colt that reportedly featured a more conservative design, but the London is still slated for a 3rd quarter 2012 release. The leak included some specs, including word of a 1.5 GHz dual-core TI OMAP SoC, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of on board storage and 8 MP rear-facing and 2 MP front-facing cameras.
BlackBerry has yet to report that they have resolved the BES and BBM issues in BBX (Ed. note: Apologies for the acronym attack.), and the device picture is a "dummy" phone with a static image on the screen, so this is less a technical demonstration and more a design sample. Dimensions were not given but it is expected to be thinner than the iPhone 4 and be accompanied by a similarly styled Torch successor that will retain it's slide out QWERTY form factor.
The phone space is ever changing, but for BlackBerry fans the next year will involve a lot of patiently waiting.
