BBX Powered BlackBerry London May Be Real!

Research in Motion, it seems, is gearing up for a new age of smartphone wars with its latest BBX based smartphone - dubbed the BlackBerry London, images of which has surfaced on the web.

BBX is basically an operating system which is based on the QNX operating system that powered the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. PlayBook didn't make it to the best selling charts though.

Research in Motion, a month back, at the BlackBerry Developer Conference in San Francisco, revealed their plans to develop the BBX OS without providing any other detail so nothing could be presumed about it except that it will work for BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 software.

The latest development is that an image has been leaked by Verge as reported by BGR (opens in new tab) which can be of a BBX phone. The image shows that there is no keyboard and has an edgy designed large all-touch display.

This image fits the reports that BBX phones will avoid a physical keyboard which is a popular characteristic of RIM products.

If rumours are to be believed BBX will be released on June next year and it will have TI OMAP dual-core CPU with 1.5GHz processor, 1GB RAM and 16GB internal storage along with a rear camera of 8 mega pixels and a front camera of 2 mega pixels, The Verge (opens in new tab) reported.
