First BBX BlackBerry phone caught on camera?

Qnx_blackberryNow here's something you don't see every day . . . or ever. According to The Verge, this is RIM's first BBX-running BlackBerry smartphone, and it's named the London. 

The photos look pretty legit, so let's dive into what the London could possibly be bringing to the table once it lands sometime next summer. There's a dual-core processor inside (which was apparently needed for BBX/QNX) that's clocked at 1.5GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, an 8MP camera on the back, and a 2MP one for the front. 

In terms of design, it's apparently thinner than the iPhone 4/4S and about as big as the Samsung Galaxy SII. The exact model for the latter device isn't specified, but we'll just assume that the screen measures around 4-inches. 

The London is also supposed to be able to stand up on one of its sides, so even though the picture doesn't show it, the device is probably quite boxy. 

Still, I think it's a very beautiful phone. It reminds me of a MacBook Pro with the silver metal and black bezel around the screen. Hopefully we'll see it (or something darn close) released sooner rather than later.
