First QNX smartphone is dubbed as the BlackBerry Colt; coming in Q1 2012
Dubbed as the BlackBerry Colt for now, which is aiming for a Q1 2012 release, there are some noteworthy pieces of information regarding the up and coming device. Obviously, people are still waiting to hear about crazy hardware specs with this one, but interestingly enough, it’s looking to sport nothing more than a single-core 1GHz processor. Nevertheless, you can’t count on the fact that RIM might end up having a change of heart between now and then – so it’s possible we might see an upgrade to it down the road.
Currently in testing with RIM’s software verification team, it appears that they’re in for one massive upbringing with this one because it’s being reported that they’re experiencing some tougher challenges. Specifically, it seems as though coders are having difficulty with it, which might force them to launch the Colt without that perennial BlackBerry Enterprise Server support. However, they aim to balance things out by having support for Microsoft’s ActiveSync – thus, appeasing some enterprise users out there in the meantime.
