1) What is a start up script?
2) How accurate are these product descriptions within the startup script? Why would RIM be so silly as to leak that information?
3) Why isn't this front page news on crackberry? I'd assume knowing the name and chipset even if they were rumors would be blog worthy!
4) Per wiki, the S4s are already out on products! Were Jim and Mike giving us BS when they said the silicon for bb10 wasn't available yet? b/c it's sure as heck available now!

Just as, for the past several months, the final devices have been slated to come out with MSM8(6/9)60.

But between the Nile, CoolStream, London, Colt, etc. can we expect any other differences in hardware between them that you might be familiar with? I'm sure the 4.19" screen at 1280 x 768 will stay final due to the Colt having it and keeping consistency for the developers.
So I'm guessing the Colt is older than the London. They look similar but show a slight evolution in design. Would it be right to assume the Nile or CoolStream will be the final device with an even more distinguished design and the S4? Being 4-5 months away from launch, I'm sure the choice of which device will be production has been made.CH Design - http://www.cameronhirbodi.com

RIM could have ordered 5 million OMAP4430 chips for the Playbook and had 4 million leftovers --- which RIM renegotiated with TI to get the OMAP4460 for the BB10 handset.
Thorstein could have imposed a hard deadline --- which RIM can't afford to miss the 2012 holiday season without a BB10 handset. And the least amount of work would be to use the same OMAP family of chips.
You are reading way too much on a bunch of scripts in the firmware --- they could be dead projects from previous administrations.

The 8960 performs better than the current-gen quad-cores by the way.

The HTC X one decided to go Dual Core in North America
PC's heck still split between dual and quad core dual core outselling quad core,
I suspect in the smartphone world we'll see that happen as well, devices will take advantage of dual cores, possibly dual cores with dual virtual cores, QuadCore has no value IMO to the smartphone marketoops...
Statistics are like bikinis. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital. \
