Reports has surfaced today that Sprint has already signed on as the first carrier of the Blackberry A10. Remember earlier when we reported that they passed on the Z10 because they we getting another all touch screen device well wait no more. The A10 is slated to be released in November which we all know is shopping season!! CNET also provides that the person familiar with the new A10 device stateed it will be the successor of the Z10.This device is a monster and I see why Sprint waited if its anything like the spec below this is a contender for IOS and Android. The rumored name of this device is or was the “Aristo.” Make sense right Aristo A10. Specs of the rumored phablet:
- 4.65″ Super AMOLED touchscreen
- Quad-core 1.9 GHz Qualcomm Krait processors
- 4GB of RAM
- 1080×1920 resolution
- 3,000mAh battery
Sprint, meanwhile, held off on the BlackBerry Z10 because it saw what was in the works and felt the A10 was worth the wait, the person familiar with its plans said. While Sprint had expected to take some flak from BlackBerry fans, it opted to focus its resources on the A10.
BlackBerry was actually pressured to unveil the A10 at last month’s BlackBerry Live conference, but the company wasn’t yet ready to make the announcement. It likely didn’t want to undercut the excitement for the Q10, which will be available on other carriers beyond T-Mobile in the coming days.
