RIM starts carrier testing of BlackBerry 10
posted by Alan F. / Oct 31, 2012, 7:59 PM
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.
- Display 5.0" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, Dual-core, 1700 MHz
- Storage 16 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2880 mAh(18h talk time)
Except by the time this device is released, it will still be competing with devices that have been/going to be released this year at least spec-wise. No doubt I'm still super excited about black berry's comeback, hope it's really good!

What happens in case Apple's downfall is brought by RIM?

The most unlikely scenario. There's 0 chance of that ever happening.

On the plus side, Android is already seeing users mimic BB10 features. On the down side, RIM is taking their sweet time releasing this. The Mobile community could really use some good innovations and not just renovations.

that nexus 4 in question is not comparable in some specs. For one, it has no LTE, no micro sd, and only 8GB internal storage, none of which the Blackberry phone is limited to. I see pricing will be in line with the competition, RIM isnt gonna be able to get away with $500 MSRP for phones like the Bold anymore, unless the specs are competitive, like they are with this model.
