New RIM BBX devices come into existence
Apparently RIM has developed a liking for names of world famous cities as new RIM devices will carry codenames such as London, Lisbon, Milan, Nevada and Black Forest.
Little is known about these devices other than just a few facts and that they will be BBX powered. The BlackBerry London for example is supposed to be officially called Surfboard. Expected specs include a 1.5 GHz dual core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage and two cameras – one 8-megapixel in the back and one 2-megapixel in the front. The device will be similar to the RIM Porsche and is expected to be slimmer than the iPhone 4.
The BlackBerry Milan – the GSM version of BlackBerry London – is expected to be launched in March 2012, the same month the London should make its debut.
There is very little information about the BlackBerry Lisbon other than it is expected to be a BBX handset with a slider.
The BlackBerry Nevada is expected to resemble the BlackBerry Bold 9900. Release date is expected in November 2012.
The BlackBerry Black Forest is expected to be a 10-inch Playbook with sharp angular sides similar to those in the London and Milan. It is believed that the Black Forest will be replacing the RIM’s PlayBook tablet series.
