by Roy Choi | October 1, 2012

Earlier a leaked spec sheet of BlackBerry London surfaced and now a spec sheet of BlackBerry’s Aristo has popped up:

  • Qualcomm APQ8064 Krait Quad Core 1.5GHz
  • Measures 136 x 68 x 8.85mm
  • BB10.x

BlackBerry Aristo, on paper, looks to be sporting some nice specs and looks to compete well against top smartphones.  We seem to be spotting more BlackBerry device spec sheets and each one seems better than the last.  But what good is great hardware if the software falls flat, what matters is that BB10 is polished and complete when these devices are ready to roll out.
No word yet on when Aristo is supposed to be ready for release, but previous rumors have hinted that Aristo will release after BlackBerry London.
