The 2012 IFA Berlin saw a huge number of smartphone and tablet launches from companies like Samsung, Acer, Sony, LG, HP and more. The same trend is going to follow for the next couple of months with Nokia about to launch its own Lumia devices and then mega Apple event which will see the iPhone 5 getting launched. Following this, it will be Microsoft’s turn to bring out the Windows Phone 8 OS officially. The point i am trying to make is, all these devices and events are centered around Android, Windows Phone and iOS. In this mayhem, it is easy to forget the other smartphone company with its troubled mobile operating system. Research In Motion and its planned BlackBerry 10 mobile operating system.
There is still lots of time for the planned BlackBerry 10 operating devices to be launched officially, but the first leaked image of a RIM device running BlackBerry 10 has surfaced over at n4bb.com. The leaked image shows a BlackBerry full touch device, called ‘London’ one belonging to the L-Series of upcoming BlackBerry phones. The phone has a sleek design, with a screen size that looks could measure 4.3 or 4.5 inches and a look at the top portion of the device, with its metallic ‘head’ gives it the look of an existing Porsche designed BlackBerry device.
Displayed on the screen of the device in the leaked image are quite a few apps, including Facebook, BBM, DocsToGo and Story Maker, though we are not sure what the last one does. The BlackBerry 10 London supposedly comes with TI OMAP dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, and an 8-megapixel camera. The device is also said to be powered by a 1800mAh LS1 battery.
The L-Series BlackBerry 10 London is said to be the first new device from RIM to come out early next year, which will be followed by the N-Series.
