• Will The BlackBerry Rio Be Renamed The BlackBerry Leap?



    Ever since it was leaked, the BlackBerry Rio has received some interest but it has basically been cast by the wayside due to the major releases and success of the Passport and Classic. Add to that the fact that the Rio appears to be appears to be the extra large size of the Z3 due to some beefed up specs.

    A discovery has been made in some BlackBerry 10 OS files that indicate there has been a name change from the BlackBerry Rio to the BlackBerry Leap. It's not very catchy name for such an underpowered phone but the Leap appears to be a "go" for BlackBerry.




    Here are some of the BlackBerry Leap's specifications:
    • 9.5 mm profile
    • 5" 1280 x 720 display
    • 2MP front facing, 8MP rear facing cameras
    • 2800 mAh non-removable battery
    • MSM 8960 Dual Core 1.5 GHz processor
    • 2 GB RAM, 16GB Flash + Micro SD
    • Penta Band LTE + 4G Hotspot
    • Wi-Fi 2.4GHz 802.11 b/g/n
    • BT 4.0 / DLNA / Miracast
    • Dual Microphone
    • Speaker phone


    What do you think of the new name, Leap? Is it something that catches your attention? Would you purchase this bigger brother of the Z3? Let us know in the comments below.
