Well, well, doesn't this look quite sexy indeed. Research in Motion's (RIM) much-anticipated next-generation BlackBerry phone has been unveiled. The next phone has been codenamed "London", and today it receives its official name "BlackBerry 10."
BlackBerry 10 looks like its slick looking BlackBerry PlayBook with rounded corners and an all-black look. London is going for a U.K. launch (who wouldn't thunk it) and is due "later this year." The U.S. market will receive BlackBerry 10, but dubbed "Laguna" and "Lisbon" and will hit AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon.
CrackBerry thinks we could see Laguna and Lisbon launch prior to London. Considering BlackBerry is still the number one smartphone in the U.K., RIM has its work cut out for itself if it wants to make a big splash across the pond. Let's talk hardware, shall we. CrackBerry have heard that both Texas Instruments OMAP5 and Qualcomm chipsets are being tested, both 1.5GHz dual-core processors.
If history repeats itself, Qualcomm chips could be used in the CDMA-capable BB10's.
