RIM starts carrier testing of BlackBerry 10
On the way to a Q1 launch of BlackBerry 10, the Canadian based manufacturer says it has begun carrier testing of the OS. Currently, it has reached lab-entry with over 50 carriers. The BlackBerry 10 OS is RIM's last chance to keep the BlackBerry name relevant in the world of smartphones. At one time, BlackBerry was the top platform in the states, but the company was slow to respond to the changes in the industry brought on by the launch of the OG Apple iPhone.

Besides working on BlackBerry 10 models with a full touch screen and models with the iconic BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard, the company is said to be developing a phone called the BlackBerry Aristo. In Greek, Aristo means "the best" and this model could very well be the new flagship 'Berry equipped with a 4.65 inch screen offering resolution of 720 x 1280. The quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 is expected under the hood along with 2GB of RAM. The 8.85mm thick model is being built so that BlackBerry can have a high-end device that can compete with the Samsung Galaxy S III,  LG Optimus G and the Apple iPhone.
