A shot of RIM's first BlackBerry 10-packing superphone, dubbed the "London" was leaked online this week and we're pretty excited about what this means for the troubled company...
The new smart phone looks somewhere between a BlackBerry PlayBook and an iPhone, it's claimed to be RIM's newest flagship device and it's set to hit stores before the end of the year.
Revealed in what appears to be an internal corporate presentation slide, the London has been called the "Ultimate Communication Device" and is said to feature a "Rich specification - hardware & software". Spotters at CrackBerry are also claiming the device will have a 1.5GHz dual core processor either from Qualcomm or Texas Instruments, a .5GHz jump over the PlayBook tablet.
It's hard to judge the legitimacy of the image, we know RIM is hedging its bets to deliver something revolutionary during 2012, while the lingo used does seem full of enough chaff to be genuine executive-speak. The handset itself though looks far more like a render than a genuine photo of a device.
We'll bring you any updates on RIM's smartphone plans as we get them. What do you think? Genuine image? Or clever fake?
