BlackBerry 'Ontario' turns up in Geekbench benchmark testing
on 7 Feb 2014 02:52 pm
A few days ago a new version of Geekbench was released for BlackBerry 10 - Geekbench 3. It's essentially an app that's used for benchmarking your device but it's looking as though someone at BlackBerry has been doing some benchmarking of their own with an unreleased BlackBerry.
As you can see by looking at the results above, the device name is a bit familiar. It's listed as 'Ontario' and to go along with it, it appears to be running an early version of BlackBerry 10.3. As far as other specs that can be gleaned from the info, we're looking at it running a quad-core Snapdragon 800 and 2GB of RAM.
The 'Ontario' device is something we've been hearing about for a very long time now but with new management coming in, its place in the BlackBerry line-up has been questioned. There's still no telling if this device will ever see the light of day but if nothing else, it confirms someone in Waterloo is still testing it and 10.3 is being worked on.
Thanks, sugardad and John!
