BlackBerry London: Leaked Image of First BBX OS Phone Appears

 

Is this the first smartphone running BBX, the new BlackBerry operating system RIM unveiled last month?

It is, according to both The Verge, which obtained the above photo, and BGR, which said it confirmed the photo’s authenticity with a “trusted source.”

According to The Verge, the smartphone is called the BlackBerry London and is scheduled to be released in June 2012. It comes with a TI OMAP 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The device appears to be quite large — The Verge‘s source said it was about the same size as the Galaxy SII (which has a 4.3-inch screen and is 0.33 inches thick), but is thinner than the iPhone 4.

The screen itself only hints at BBX’s interface. The slick-looking device displays a static image and is not a screenshot of the operating system in action, according to The Verge.

In official BlackBerry news, RIM announced two BlackBerry OS 7 smartphones, the BlackBerry Bold 9790 and Curve 9380, on Monday.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

After accidentally announcing it a little early, Microsoft is officially confirming it has acquired email startup Acompli. The surprise acquisition means Microsoft is picking up a powerful email client for iPhone and Android in another move that further cements CEO Satya Nadella’s focus on cross-platform technologies. The Verge’s Casey Newton called Acompl "the Outlook for iPhone that Microsoft hasn’t yet built," and it seems Microsoft was equally impressed with the powerhouse email app. "We’re excited about what’s possible as we build on the app’s success and bring it together with work currently in progress by the Outlook team," the company said in a statement. "Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.
