BlackBerry Milan – First BB 10 Mobile Phone Now BBX is no more

This week BlackBerry was blocked from naming their new operating system BBX so have gone for the more straight forward BlackBerry 10 – Say hello then to the first BB10 mobile phone: The BlackBerry Milan.

Research in Motion’s first BlackBerry handheld device to sport the new BB OS not only follows the BlackBerry London in being named after a city, it also takes a few design notes – but the Milan stays within RIM’s comfort zone and still packs a QWERTY board.

That kinda puts paid to the idea that the BlackBerry cobbler would be dropping keyboards with the arrival of the once-name BBX OS.

The new slider draws inspiration from both the Torch and the London – gone is the menu and call buttons as well as the disconnect and the back keys.

Rumour has it that the Milan will be equipped with a 720p high-resolution display.
