BlackBerry 10 to get carrier testing
The fact is that the BlackBerry 10 OS is RIM’s last chance to keep the BlackBerry name relevant in the world of smartphones. We all know that not long ago BlackBerry was the top platform in the States and holding high prestige all over the world as the ultimate business phone. With time however, and with the fierce “attack” of competitors like Apple and Samsung, to name but two, RIM found itself unable to respond to the changes in the industry, and started to quickly lose positions.
RIM may eventually lose the war, but nevertheless they intend to give their “rivals” a memorable battle. Besides working on BlackBerry 10 models with a full touch screen and models with the iconic BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard, the company is said to be developing a phone called the BlackBerry Aristo. In Greek, Aristo means “the best” and this model could very well be the new RIM flagship. So far it is known that the new phone will be ‘Berry’ equipped with a 4.65 inch screen offering resolution of 720 x 1280. The quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 is expected under the hood along with 2GB of RAM. The 8.85mm thick model is being built so that BlackBerry can have a high-end device that can compete with the Samsung Galaxy S III, LG Optimus G and the Apple iPhone.
