RIM said to be working on QNX powered Superphone as its 'Hail Mary' pass
According to sources for N4BB, RIM has stopped production of a 10 inch PlayBook and instead, is developing a QNX powered 'Superphone'. This model is expected to have a 4.3 inch screen with resolution of "900+", although we're not really sure what that should mean. Under the hood will be the same single-core 1.2GHz processor that will be in the upcoming BlackBerry Bold 9900. RIM had considered a dual-core processor to be a battery killer, although it is not too late for them to change up to a dual-core chip. Sound good? With a 10 inch BlackBerry PlayBook said to no longer be worked on, RIM will push out the 4G LTE version of its 7 inch PlayBook in October, according to the source.
BlackBerry fans have been hoping that a QNX powered phone would be coming soon. And now, as the clock ticks down to a precious few seconds, here is another manufacturer throwing a Hail Mary pass with the game on the line.
