I don’t mean to sound like a condescending git here, but there’s something really quite endearing about the good folks at CrackBerry getting all excited about the BlackBerry London while the rest of the industry gives a collective shrug.
Said diehards have gotten their hands on a leaked BlackBerry London slide, and it looks nothing like it used to, man.
In (presumably) RIM’s own words, the new BlackBerry London is “elegant, understated, precise, solid, slim”. The slide goes on to suggest that BlackBerry 10 – when it finally arrives – will be a “Dramatic shift in UI experience”. Ok.
As the Crack addicts note, the BlackBerry London is like a little mini smartphone version of the BlackBerry PlayBook.
The BlackBerry London is thought to be destined for the UK, while the other BlackBerry 10 phones - the Laguna and Lisbon - will head to the US.
As for BlackBerry London specs, 1.5GHz dual-core TI and Qualcomm processors are said to be in testing, and previous whispers suggested 1GB of RAM, 16GB storage and an 8MP camera.
I think I liked the old model better, but then I quite fancied the BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981. Yes, I am weird.
