CNET took reference from sources that the new BlackBerry A10 device is codenamed “Aristo”. Currently, the third largest U.S. carrier Sprint Nextel has said that they will support the A10 and that this new flagship model will be on sale in November. However, Sprint has not signed an exclusive dealership agreement with BlackBerry and the phone will be sold at other operators as well in the future.
A10 specifications are unknown at the moment as both BlackBerry and Sprint refused to say anything about them. BlackBerry COO Kristian Tearsaid that there will have many other innovative BlackBerry devices in the future, but did not say anything else about BlackBerry A10. He said that “Innovation is the cornerstone of BlackBerry and it is very important to us”.
In addition, there are sources saying that this phone will run on BlackBerry 10.2 system with 2GB of memory. System settings menu will also add a backup function for easy information backing up. A10 will be better as compared to the current flagship device in terms of hardware, design and manufacturing standard. The name of the device may still change as we are unsure if A10’s name is official.
