The launch of PlayBook has given rise to a new speculation about the launch of RIM’s QNX-based smartphone launch. And going by BGR’s sources — who’ve been spot on related to BlackBerry rumors — the first QNX running smartphone is expected in first quarter of next year. The phone is codenamed is BlackBerry Colt and according to the site, RIM will compromise on some features in order to release the phone.
Apparently, RIM will launch Colt with a single-core processor so that it can give a satisfactory battery life. Also, the smartphone won’t support BES initially but will support Microsoft ActiveSync out of the box.
We reckon it will be CES when RIM will unravel the device for the first time.
