Martin was saying just yesterday that RIM has been forced to change the name of its next smartphone OS from BBX to the significantly less interesting BlackBerry 10.
Regardless of the name, there’s a heck of a lot riding on the next wave of RIM smartphones, and one of these QNX-based chaps – the BlackBerry Milan – has popped up in a cheeky leak.
Unfortunately there aren’t any specs to accompany the leak, so all we have to go on is the pic. The most obvious thing to note is that the BlackBerry Milan is a QWERTY slider with a four-row keyboard.
We’d be surprised if the screen didn’t support touch, and while we don’t know the exact dimensions at this early stage, it does look fairly meaty. CrackBerry’s sources reckon it’ll have a Retina-beating resolution.
Gone are the traditional BlackBerry optical trackpad and buttons (call, end call, menu and back). The bottom area of the phone is instead adorned with a BlackBerry logo.
And that’s your lot; what you see is what you get. We don’t know anything yet about the processor (dual-core, surely), RAM, cameras, battery… you get the idea.
Stay tuned for more inevitable BlackBerry 10 leakies.
