not the model that you will be considering a purchase of later this year. The phones being handed out to developers will not have the same looks and navigation as the finished consumer product will have. The first BlackBerry 10 model is expected to be called the BlackBerry London and is due out later this year. A picture, allegedly of the device, has already been leaked.
The BlackBerry 10 OS is based on the QNX OS that RIM uses on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. Originally the smartphone OS was called BBX until RIM found out that another company called Basis was using that name and changed the moniker of its new OS to BlackBerry 10. Now, RIM starts on the most important journey in company history by giving developers a head start on using BlackBerry 10. A few days ago, we showed you leaked photos of what is claimed to be the packaging for the BlackBerry London.
