BBRY A10 Specifications

Blackberry A10 will have a 5 inch super AMOLED Screen, 2GB RAM and a dual core processor. A10 will get a dual core rather than quad core processor to make the battery life more efficient.

Blackberry A10 is codenamed Aristo for now and according to BGR it will have “much more refined fit and finish” than the Z10. A10 is also suppose to have separate GPU and CPU rather than current integrated chip solution, which is used in the current devices

There is, however, no confirmation that whether Blackberry A10 will sport an 8 megapixel camera or not. Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSE:BB) is looking forward to compete with Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPhone with its OS10 devices.

Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSE:BB) has not given any update whether it has hired any developers to design games for the device, or is it expecting the developers to give their titles on Blackberry, as well.

What analysts feel?

John Jackson, an analyst from IDC said that Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSE:BB) has ample opportunity to increase its portfolio and the hardware should be one to attract buyers.

Analyst Ross Rubin of Reticle Research said that from a technology point of view Blackberry Z10 and Q10 are not the most dominating. He also echoed that Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSE:BB) should give due importance to hardware. “Hopefully they can focus a little more attention back on the hardware side,” he said.

Roger Entner, from Recon Analytics said that the new phone should have the OS10 and should come over the previous issues in order to allure developer and consumer. “I personally think only one company can pull off annual iteration on the software side, and that’s Apple,” he said. “Everybody else needs to have at least two.”

Blackberry 9720

Other model from Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSE:BB) to watch for is 9720, which is similar to Blackberry 9700 with certain updates to catch up with the trend, in 2013, and other BB10 phones.
