After so much bad news from RIM, we finally see hope for a brighter future. RIM announced that the long awaited Blackberrywith 4G will be available July 31st for $550. The announcement came as a surprise as most were forecasting for a Fall 2012 release date.
As you can see in the picture, we are indebted to the telecommunications provider Bell, whose internal document gave us the scoop.
Here are few of the specifications:
7-inch display with a resolution of 1024 x 600
1.5GHz dual-core processor
4G LTE and HSPA +
1GB of RAM,
5MP camera back, 3MP camera front
4800 mAh battery
Assuming the info is correct, the price should be $550. Sure you get 4G, but given the success of the Nexus 7, I can imagine a few headaches for RIM. It probably won’t be a mega seller, but it will make some difference to Blackberry Playbook fans.
