RIM drops two highly anticipated phones
The new year doesn't seem to change the fortune of smartphone maker Research In Motion as it seems they have decided to cancel two projects. Given the series of mishaps they have experienced, relying on only one release this year is an act of putting all the eggs in a basket. Hopefully, that is not the case, but time will tell.
Research In Motion (RIM), maker of the Blackberry series of phones, have no shortage of bad news as the latest in the long line of disasters involves the cancellation of not one, but two phones originally due to be released this year. The two phones, codenamed Colt and Milan, were to come with Blackberry 10 and Blackberry 7 mobile operating platforms respectively, but both are now scrapped. The Milan was also noted to resemble a lot to the existing Blackberry Torch. As of now, the only known project that RIM is working on would be the Blackberry London which is based on the Blackberry 10 software. Speculations suggest a 1.5Ghz dual core processor, a pair of cameras of whereby one of them is 8-megapixels in resolution, and topping off with a 3.7-inch display. While this phone may seem to be the company’s only lifeline left to turn their fortune, let's hope that RIM will give everyone a surprise with more exciting releases soon.
