The guys of The Verge managed to score a picture of the upcoming BlackBerry London, proving that RIM is still capable to deliver a hit handset. This is finally a phone that feels original and doesn’t stick to the same antique design that the Blackberries have been adopting over the past years.
Based on QNX, BBX looks interesting and it’s finally a breath of fresh air after the not so appealing BB OS 7. BlackBerry London is supposed to debut in June 2012, packing a dual core TI OMAP 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, an 8 megapixel camera at the back and a 2 megapixel cam at the front. London is supposed to be thinner than the iPhone 4 and about the same general size as the Galaxy S II.
As far as design goes, there are some similarities with the RIM Porsche Design P9981, the latest luxury phone developed by RIM and Porsche Design. It appears that the Canadian maker also has plans for two other novelties, in the lower end segment, One is the next Torch with a 3.7 inch display, sliding keyboard and very thin waistline.
