Looks like I’ve been bamboozled! I’ve been told that this roadmap was an April Fool’s prank. Either way, we’re getting some good discussion out of it…right?
A slide of the alleged roadmap for devices released this year and beyond has been leaked and I’m not sure what to make of it. Judging by the proportions in the image, we’re going to see some huge BB10 devices released starting this Fall.
The B10 L* looks like a tablet. Perhaps it is the rumored 10” PlayBook codenamed “Blackforest.” Hopefully the OS10 software update for all existing PlayBooks is released before this.
The U10 looks to be an all touch phablet measuring at least 5” diagonally. Is this the Aristo? The C on the end of the name is really confusing me here. I assume the B and W stand for Black and White. The L after the Z10 could be for the limited edition, which might mean the 10” PlayBook has another color variant as well.
The R10 seems to be a Q10 on steroids. It looks like the keyboard would be extremely wide and there’s a slight curve at the bottom of the screen where the Q10 is completely straight.
What do you think? Does this match up with what we have been hearing so far? From what Thorsten has said about tablets, I was surprised to see another one slated for release but only time will tell what BlackBerry has up their sleeve for the future.
Either way it’s exciting to see things moving along and BlackBerry setting and hitting release and sales targets.
