Welcome to CrackBerry.com's continuously updated guide of rumored BlackBerry device models. This page will be regularly updated as we hear more details about BlackBerry smartphones and devices that may be in development. It often starts with a codename and builds from there, as the device model number, specs and eventually images and physical hardware make their way out onto the interwebs. Keep in mind that not all rumored devices make it all the way through to commercialization and specs and info are bound to change. That means some of the data you may find on this page may change, may not be true or may even be right for a little while and then change! We'll do our best to keep it accurate and current based on the information at hand. If you think you have awesome info that you want to share that will benefit this page, send it to tips @ crackberry.com.
Although it's hardly as exciting as a hands-on look or some never before seen images, it looks as though the first Foxconn built BlackBerry 10 device has now landed at the Bluetooth SIG and has been fully certified. The SIG documents note the device as supporting BlackBerry OS 10.2 but that'll likely change to 10.2.1 upon release.Continue Reading →
A few days ago while digging through a BlackBerry 10.2 OS I came across some placeholder images for the A-Series devices. They weren't anything special by any means but at the time I had speculated we'd be seeing plenty more of the device soon. Well, since then we've actually seen a lot more than even I was expecting, including the first spotting of the device and what potentially could be the back of the device along with a brief video hands-on with it.
Now, freshly posted in the CrackBerry Forums comes a few 'help' images from what is suggested to be the A-Series and while they are just renders showing general help, they potentially give some further information about how the device will be laid out in terms of where the HDMI out port, micro USB port will be placed along with a side loading SIM slot and microSD.Continue Reading →
Finishing out the week wouldn't seem right without some a bit more love for the rumored BlackBerry R10. This time it's in the form of a gesture tutorial video courtesy of @MujibAzizi. While the startup video is standard on BlackBerry 10 devices, we've yet to see it live for the R10.Continue Reading →
The funny thing about Instagram is that a lot of folks post things to it without giving it a second thought really. If you go looking, you'll find all sorts of things that people most likely should have kept to themselves instead of broadcasting. Such is the case with this unannounced BlackBerry 10 device more commonly known as the R10 or R-Series.Continue Reading →
Well what do we have here? Vietnamese website Tinhte was sent some pictures of what is apparently the mythical 10-inch BlackBerry PlayBook! This mysterious device was first mentioned when the 7-inch PlayBook came out, but then was cancelled in early 2011 so that RIM could focus efforts in other areas.
From what we can see in the pictures here, this larger form factor tablet does have a slot for a sim card as well as the familiar front facing camera and bezels for swiping, but no indication on what capacity this model will be or if it would be a 3G or 4G model, assuming it ever comes to production. Though, you can see it has a 7250mAh battery onboard from the shots of the internals. Remember, the codename for the device is Blackforest, a device we saw come up many times in the past but also notably in more recent roadmaps.
So what do you think of the larger form factor? Would you be interested in buying a 10-inch PlayBook if RIM did indeed decide to go ahead with production, or are you sold on the smaller form factor? Let us know in the comments below. You can check out plenty more pictures below and a few more of the internals at the source link.
