RIM puts resources behind single BlackBerry 10 device, report says

January 5, 2012 , , , , ,

Research in Motion is reportedly putting its eggs into one BlackBerry 10 basket.

The beleaguered BlackBerry maker scrapping a few projects and focusing on a single BlackBerry 10 smartphone, codenamed London, according to a report from Boy Genius Report. The phone looks similar to the one that The Verge reported on in November.

A RIM representative wasn’t immediately available to comment to CNET.

RIM needs to focus on getting its next-generation BlackBerry market in order to have a chance to compete against the next iPhone and the wave of Android smartphones constantly hitting the market. But executives warned that one wouldn’t come until the second half of the year, a critical setback to its recovery efforts.

RIM has cancelled the device codenamed Colt, which was intended to be the first BlackBerry 10 phone, BGR reported, while scrapping another phone codenamed Milan, which BGR said was actually a phone running on the current BlackBerry 7 software.

BGR also reported that a Porsche-inspired version of the BlackBerry 9900 “was a complete disaster.”
