BlackBerry Colt and Milan cancelled, only one BlackBerry 10 phone in the works

BlackBerry Colt and Milan cancelled, only one BlackBerry 10 phone in the worksWe’ve mentioned the BlackBerry Colt a handful of times here on Mobot. It was expected to be RIM’s first BlackBerry 10 smartphone, but BGR reports that it’s been canned.

As has the BlackBerry Milan, which I wrote about last month. Confusingly, it wasn’t actually a BlackBerry 10 effort after all, but in any case – RIM is reportedly now working on just one BlackBerry 10 smartphone.

We didn’t know a great deal about the all-touch BlackBerry Colt, to be honest. Initially it was thought to have a single-core processor, but the latest rumours pegged it with dual-core action.

As for the BlackBerry Milan, networks were reportedly unimpressed with the BlackBerry 7 offering, and ultimately uninterested in carrying a phone that was near identical to the BlackBerry Torch.

That just leaves the BlackBerry London (pictured), which was spotted in the wild back in November. It’s thought to have a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage and an 8MP camera. Sounds good to us.

Finally, apparently when Porsche Design representatives first turned up to check on the P’9981, they described it as “a complete disaster”. Great stuff.

anyone else want to know why the p9981 was a disaster?

Because it cost well over £1000 and wasn't anything really to do with Porsche, it just had their badge?

I'm guessing your reason is nothing so...normal ;).

Personally I just thought it was ugly...,but I was wondering if Porsche hated the software too
