BlackBerry London render leaks as RIM may try full US attack

updated 07:25 pm EST, Tue January 31, 2012

RIM-made BlackBerry London render escapes

RIM's BlackBerry London has been refined in looks ahead of what could be an attempt to return to the US in force. New leaks to CrackBerry have the render of the first BlackBerry 10 phone's expected finished look making it considerably more refined than the very angular, Porsche Design-like look of a dummy unit. A presumably mock screenshot also points to a more refined media player than either on BlackBerry 7 or on the PlayBook.

What may be more important is an expanded launch strategy, sources argued. The London might be a UK- or Europe-specific model where two variants previously only hinted at, the Laguna and Lisbon, would be meant to bring the phone to AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon in short order. While speculative, it's possible the US variants would ship to the US first.

Reflecting the importance is a hint that RIM may change entire chipsets to make sure US carriers get support. A 1.5GHz TI OMAP5 and a similarly clocked Qualcomm Snapdragon chip are supposedly both in testing. Qualcomm might be meant to get CDMA into the chipset where TI tends to favor GSM, although both were already expected to carry 4G LTE.

While RIM is unlikely to confirm the rumors before the device is ready, the multi-carrier strategy and hardware changes would show the importance of the London. It's expected to be the cornerstone of its 2012 strategy and may only come in the late summer or early fall, leaving a wide gap in releases between now and then. Having multiple carriers onboard for the same device would help make up for lost time effectively handed over to Apple and Google.

    And no physical keyboard . . .

    How can this be? RIM making a 'business phone' with no physical keyboard. Business people need keyboards don't they? Isn't that what distinguished the Blackberry? It sure looks a lot like the iPhone that they all laughed at.

    I'll tell u what...

    ...that mock-up looks way better than the previous one. It looks slick, and wonderfully thin. If it didn't come to the table so late in the game, it would have a great chance! Still, for any Rim fans left, it looks like an exciting design.
