If you follow me on Twitter, you may have heard me mention the BlackBerry Aristo a couple of times. I mentioned it before in the forums as well a little ways back but at that time there were very few specs for it available. It was noted to be a successor of the BlackBerry London series and the start of the new A-Series devices. Now, a new spec sheet has popped up for the device backing up some of the information. As you can see, the specs are calling for a whole lot of goodness:

  • Qualcomm APQ8064 Krait Quad Core 1.5GHz
  • 136 x 68 x 8.85mm
  • GSM – Quad band (not specified) – WCDMA – 2100/1900/850-850MHz – LTE – AWS/700/1900/850MHz – EU/APAC – GSM – Quad band (not specified) – WCDMA – 2100/1900/850-850/900MHz – LTE – 1800/2.6GHz/800/900MHz
  • OCTA Glass OLED 4.65″ – 1280 x 720 – 24 bit Colour – 16:9
  • Capacitive All Touch
  • 2GB RAM + 16GB Flash – Hot Swappable MicroSD slot 16GB MicroSD card
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n 2.4GHz/5GHz 4G Mobile Hotspot
  • MicroUSB – MicroHDMI – Wifi Direct – NFC – DLNA – Bluetooth 4.0
  • Stereo speakers – 4 Microphones – Noise Reduction – Wideband AMR
  • 2800mAh sealed battery with non-removeable door
    Footprint 104 x 57.1 x 3.4mm (20H use for Multimedia user)

Sounds awesome right? Needless to say, it raises the question about early adopters and when this device will come out. This looks to be a full package device, one that many might want to hold off and wait for. Now, I will admit the Laguna, Lisbon and London specs that leaked over the weekend looked a little shady to me but these specs are more of what we were hoping to see.
