CrackBerry recently posted some of the coolest news we’ve seen in our entire existence.. (almost 3 years I think). Yeah that’s right, this is the real deal. The first images of an actual BlackBerry 10 Superphone code name: London.
I know how freaking pumped I am on this device considering we share 2 BlackBerry PlayBooks in our home, my wife and I have BlackBerry 7 devices and our children see RIM as a future form of technology that they too will embrace one day.
I don’t really have any words. I love every single BlackBerry device I’ve owned. My wife has loved every single device she has owned. As I type this I have a BlackBerry PlayBook on my lap, and Bold 9930 on my thigh. My lady April has a BlackBerry PlayBook glued to her hands and a Torch 9850 sitting an inch away. We do every thing in our nature to correct people and boast about the RIM’s biggest achievements. Sure they didn’t “Press Release” this info. And at Berryfication, I’ve kept things like this off the blog. Reason being, as a professional blog we have seen a lot of “leaks” or “unreleased news’ hurt developers. That is not our goal hear. Hits, comments, and sales are great but not at another’s expense.
Time’s are changing. RIM has begun to really listen to the consumers. This started back when we all started noticing business users carry around a BlackBerry for work and an iPhone for play. This must change. And so far, post BlackBerry 99xx it has. But that’s not good enough. And these big blogs that are still roasting RIM for whatever reason, need less kerosene to pour on the flames.
According to CrackBerry the “London is actually slated for the UK (go figure), while two other models — “Laguna” and “Lisbon” are in development for the US market targeting AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. We wouldn’t be surprised at all to see Laguna and Lisbon actually launched prior to London” – Kevin Michalukhttp://crackberry.com
Kevin goes on to talk hardware, which is the most exciting factor if you ask me. Keep in mind RIM usually makes different chipsets for separate carriers since AT&T, T-Mobile use GSM, whereas Sprint & Verizon use CDMA. He goes on to say, the “TI OMAP5 and Qualcomm chipsets are being tested (1.5GHz dual core processors). If we look ahead by looking at BlackBerry history, it could be that Qualcomm is for the CDMA carriers.” - Kevin Michaluk
