Default BB 2012 Roadmap

Please Login to Remove!

From GottaBeMobile.com and BGR

http://www.gottabemobile.com/2012/01...=Google+Reader

It appears that RIM's 2012/Q1 2013 roadmap has leaked out today revealing the devices that new CEO Thorsten Heins will see to the market. If they even make it that far. The roadmap reveals that RIM has a few, but not a lot of hardware on the way this year with the company planning on releasing two new BlackBerry Curves, a new PlayBook, and two BlackBerry 10 phones in 2012 with another BB 10 phone slated for Q1 of 2013.

So what's coming when?

Well, the first devices on tap will be the BlackBerry Curve 9230 and the BlackBerry Curve 9320. The 9230 will be an EDGE phone, we're not joking, while the Curve 9320 is an HSPA device.

Next, it's a new BlackBerry PlayBook that will apparently be hitting shelves and it will apparently be launching with a 1.5GHz processor, HSPA+ 42Mbps cellular data support (T-Mobile has such a network) and an NFC chip. Rumor has it that it will be launching in either May or June.

This isn't the first time that we've heard about a new PlayBook either. No, we heard previously that it would be releasing a 7-inch PlayBook in April and a 10-inch PlayBook in December. (Although the 10-inch model is not mentioned here.) We're assuming that the roadmap refers to the 7-inch variant.

Now, fast-forward a few months to September and that's when the company's first BlackBerry 10 release, the BlackBerry London, is supposedly going to be coming out barring any unforeseen setbacks.

If you don't recall, the London apparently has a 1.5GHz TI OMAP dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 16GB of on-board storage, and a form factor that differs from your usual BlackBerry. It sounds great, but it's a shame that we'll have to wait nine months for it.

Speaking on waiting, two other BlackBerry 10 smartphones are also in the pipeline. One is a Bold series device that is rumored to feature a touchscreen and physical QWERTY and its apparently due out in December.

Another BlackBerry 10 handset, a QWERTY slider, is slated for Q1 of 2013.

So if this is true, it looks like BlackBerry won't be flooding the market with loads of phones with confusing names like they did in 2011. Instead, releases will be much more staggered in nature.

An update from GotteBeMobile.com, although they note their source as BGR. (Maybe the parrot speaks to more than BGR?):

First BlackBerry 10 Smartphone Not Coming Until October?

If RIM really wants to make a splash here wouldn't they come out with a quad core? Just a thought!

If they did that, then even more users will be whining about poor battery life. You can't have it both ways. You either can have a fast processor, LTE speeds and a great screen or you can put up with a bit less of a processor, a slightly lower resolution screen, 3G and a better battery.

Until battery technology catches up, I am content with more battery life and less stuff I really don't need in the first place.

Quad core, 5 in 3d screen, LTE, Wifi n+, 2 week battery life and makes me a drink when i ask it to would be nice.

might make the next gen fusion powered, just add some beer n garbage to get a gigawatt of power.

I am looking as I have been due for a new phone for about 6 months from Verizon. So far I have found nothing worth moving to from my 9550. The damn thing has been the best phone I ever had. I drop it and it keeps working with about one battery pull per month.

Not sure the roadmap shows anything I want.

I am waiting for BB10. I don't even care if it's NOT the greatest thing since sliced bread, but I am interested and curious to see it in action. I am in no hurry to dump my 9900 though. Damn I love this phone.

I like my 9810, but will probably move to a BB10 device once a good one arrives.

If their entry device into this new platform turns out to be the bees knees, then yeah, for sure. I'm just not 100% convinced it will go according to plan, hope it does though.

Any idea/rumor about whether or not RIM is planning on keeping the Bold form factor or totally moving on to London? I was looking at my gf''s droid phone and realized how much i'd love it if i could get a 9700 that's huge like that. Way bigger screen, way bigger keyboard.
