BlackBerry A10 Aristo detailed in new leaked pics and video

BlackBerry A10 Aristo detailed in new leaked pics and videoWe're still a fair way away from the BlackBerry A10 or Aristo seeing the light of day, but Vietnamese site Tinhte has kindly given us a stash of A10 photos and a hands on video to keep us going.

It looks pretty decent too, and a fair bit different to the current touchscreen flagship the BlackBerry Z10, which kicked off the BlackBerry 10 revolution back in January.

The A10 is set to come in above the Z10 in the steadily expanding range of BB10 devices, with the main difference being the A10's 5in screen, which will make it the biggest BlackBerry ever made.

It'll also be the most powerful, with the specs supplied talking of a 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 1280 x 768-pixel AMOLED display, 8MP/2MP cameras, 4G connectivity, a 2800mAh battery and BlackBerry 10.2.

The BlackBerry A10 is only expected to launch towards the end-of-year holiday season, so its moderately high end specs probably won't look that clever then, especially with key handsets such as the iPhone 5S expected before then.

Still, if you're part of the BlackBerry faithful these leaked snaps and video footage should be right up your street, so fill yer boots.

Shonk, call me a romantic, but I reckon the point is that the new new iPhone is going to sell well - regardless of specs.

They key, shone, is that iOS is well coded so doesn't need to have quad cores and the like to run well, the fact that android is ploughing ahead with quad/octo cores and yet iPhones with dual cores tend to display equal of not faster performance tends to show that its more a case that high spec is a necessity with android

iOS is an antiquated and limited OS that reminds me of symbian
and doesnt keep up with any flagship android device

Seriously: examples, please. How is it antiquated and doesn't keep up?

Also: Symbian was infinitely more open than iOS (and Android in its first 18 months or so, for that matter). In addition to whatever makes you hate Apple, you obviously haven't used Symbian much.

"Limited"? You could say that, the closed garden approach of iOS does mean that the core iOS is not as tweakable as android, but if you expand into app support then both iOS and Android are equally as flexable with the range of apps that are around. If anything, iOS's lack of flexability in the core operating system is one of its strengths as Android can be quite messy with how functions like back button having different results depending on what you were doing before you pressed them

Stelph, right.
Also, I like where this will go next: you need to jailbreak iPhones to get anything done, while Android is so free it lets you flash ROMs which, ahem, require root LOL
