BlackBerry 10 devices to sport quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, RIM outs a
If you've been resting on your laurels whiel the rest of the mobile industry moved at breakneck pace, making your devices obsolete, what do you do? Well, rev up your next crop of smartphones to the highest spec level, of course.

After learning that BlackBerry 10 devices will feature screens with HD resolutions, a must for any flagship worthy its name today, now comes a rumor that they might also sport that beast of a chipset Snapdragon S4 Pro - quad-core, Adreno 320 graphics and all. Qualcomm reps have confirmed that S4 Pro will “be on BlackBerry 10 devices when they come out” and also that we will have the ”S5 chipset mid 2013".

Qualcomm's finest has a multimode LTE/HSPA+ 4G radio inside, too, so RIM will be covered in terms of connectivity as well, and the problems with the 28nm production process of those chips should be already behind the chip company by the time BB10 devices land. RIM even outed a video and a special blog post to explain what LTE is yesterday to prep the consuming masses, which you can see below.

Actually the big issue us that by the time we have the six BlackBerry 10 devices rumored for next year, everyone, including Nokia, will have moved to multicore chipsets and HD screens, and we'll have to wait and see what compelling offering RIM will come up with to address the head start of the competition.

So, does that mean that Wendy is going to buy one of the BB10 phones when they start to ship?

Multi-tasking with each app as tiles? Tell me how BB10 didn't copy almost all elements from Nokia N9 UI and Windows Phone. Very "original", RIM.

Probably the only unique feature they have is that BBM thingy which in fact, works way better with a hardware keyboard. Oh and also, everything stops working when the battery goes down a leeeetal bit. Yay!

yeah.. it looks like N9 UI but it has different look... N9 has only 3 screens and BB10 is somehow different.. take time to watch youtube vids of BB10 dev alpha... its really different..

but its a good thing that they somehow "revive" the swipe UI of N9 coz N9's OS is dead.. killed by its parent...so swipe's goodness will never see some light anymore.. but the asha touch had them now.. and resemble to N9 swipe.. so BB10 wont be as elegant as the N9 but it is worth to wait and to buy!!!

LOL guys, this is not Badoo... Anyway, the S4 chip on BB10 sounds like a nice deal. We have seen how is is outperforming every mobile processor out there, including Tegra 3 and Exynos. Now let's hope RIM are planning to out phones with the S5 later on in 2013 so they can be current with everyone.
