RIM’s Mobile Bet Revealed, The BlackBerry London With BBX (QNX Based) … Good Enough Or Too Late?

Share And Comment

Research In Motion is probably looking at their BBX devices, which are based on QNX, as their mobile saviors. Interestingly enough, consumers will actually be the determinants of that belief, and today it appears that we can form our first impressions. How? Well, it appears that RIM’s first BBX device, the BlackBerry London, has leaked all over the net. Now of course this has not been confirmed, but it has been corroborated by several sources.

According to sources of The Verge, the BlackBerry London has

a TI OMAP dual-core CPU clocked to 1.5GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter. The London is reportedly “thinner than the iPhone 4” and roughly the same size as a Galaxy S II (though our source didn’t say which S II specifically). Oddly, the source says that the phone can be stood straight up on one of its sides (suggesting more boxiness than can be seen in the picture).

Sadly, the device will not be ready to launch until Q3 of next year. Talk about late to the party! But hey, RIM believes in being late, and in this case very late versus doing nothing at all seems to work. Anyway, check out the picture below and let us know what you think. Would you buy it? Is this good enough? Or is it too late?
