First BlackBerry BBX running Smartphone could be called ‘Surfboard’

Yes we were as surprised as you on reading this, but there are a few words doing the round that RIM is going to name its first BBX running device as ‘Surfboard’. Initially we have seen the device in a leak and also heard that it was code-named as ‘London’.

According to reports, RIM had filed for the trademark of ‘BlackBerry Surfboard’ in the Canadian Intellectual Property Office back in July 2010, and has been sitting on it since then. Maybe RIM would have not used this ever, but now they have subsequently filed for an extension of time this past May and this has given the rumour mills to work a little harder. We expects the release of the Surfboard to be somewhere in June 2012 with the fresh BBX OS onboard.

Also going by the rumours specs of the Surfboard/London may be:
  • 1.5GHz TI OMAP dual-core processor with
  • 1GB of RAM.
  • May come with 16GB of onboard storage
  • An 8-megapixel rear camera
  • 2-megapixel front-facing for video chat
