BlackBerry London: Amazing Specs with BBX OS, Release Still Pending

Posted on 15 November 2011 by author

A BlackBerry with a BBX, RIM’s QNX-based OS, is reportedly forthcoming by June 2012 or later and dubbed as BlackBerry “London” featuring 1Gb of RAM and an onboard storage of 16Gb.

The processor, which is clocked at 1.5Ghz is TI OMAP dual-core CPU. It’s thinner than the iPhone 4, about the same size as the Galaxy S and has bold angular lines. It is also fitted with an 8Mp rear camera and a 2Mp front-facing camera. However, the image shown online could be a dummy though, but was later corroborated along with the information from BGR as true and phone is the replacement to the scrapped BlackBerry Colt. Some variation of the PlayBook’s OS can be seen on the interface such as the music app icon.

Interestingly, the phone sports the RIM’s Porsche Design P9981 and could possibly land the phone in other countries because of the Porsche design. BBX is a mobile platform designed for tablets and smartphone that incorporates NOC, Enterprise and cloud services. It offers 100 open source libraries, the new advanced graphics Cascade UI and supports NativeSDK, Adobe AIR/Flash and HTML5, among others. Cascade UI enables Super Apps to provide 3D animations and integration with BBM as well as Push services. It has been certified for POSIX which could lure developers.

Availability of the leaked BB London is still undisclosed, so stay tuned.
