Leaked image of BlackBerry 10-powered London surfaces
The BlackBerry London is supposedly the world's first BlackBerry 10-powered smartphone and features a 1.5GHz dual-core processor
A press slide and photo of the much-anticipated BlackBerry 10-powered BlackBerry London has leaked, according to a report by CrackBerry. Pegged as the world's first BlackBerry 10 smartphone, the London will reportedly sport a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and a super-sharp, 8-megapixel shooter.
While it is impossible to tell from the photo or slide, the London is also said to be equipped with 16GB of storage, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat, and 1GB of RAM. Crackberry indicates in their report that the London will be the same thickness as a Samsung Galaxy S II and even thinner than the iPhone 4S.
So, just where exactly will the BlackBerry London launch? Europe, most likely, with other models destined for the United States. According to CrackBerry, the two other models, codenamed "Laguna" and "Lisbon", are in development for the US targeting AT&T, Sprint Nextel, and Verizon Wireless.
We'll have to see whether or not RIM can get their act together and actually launch the London. With Thorsten Heins taking the reigns, though, it seem much more likely to nail timing than before. The London is currently on track for a late 2012 launch.
We don't really have much else on the London, which is too bad because the device sure looks nice. Hopefully, we get to see some more in the coming months.
