For one handed use, they have the Z10. Aristo is for another crowd that likes big screens. Plus a 1080p screen would look much nicer and crisper than a 720p image. Basically, your eyes will notice a difference in sharpness if anything.
Plus I don't like 720p screens on a 5'' screen. I'm too ruined by small screens with high (your eye won't be able to notice more than this amount of PPI) PPI.
I don't understand what the hate is for 1080p screens on phones.

I had a little tantrum recently here about the Aristo, in which I voiced my displeasure that I could end up buying a London now and then missing out on the Aristo because of being locked into my contract with the London. I've since revised my opinion after learning the Aristo would likely be a bigger phone catering to that crowd. I don't like the 4.7 inch or larger phones, so the 4.2" London would be the better choice for me regardless of whether the Aristo was quad core or not. Plus, I'm also not one of those blind spec chasers. I know full well that the hardware specs and RAM of the z10 are perfectly suitable for browsing, gaming frames/second, and video recording/playback FPS on a BB10 OS and will remain so for the next couple of years.

"I don't understand what the hate is for 1080p screens on phones." Why not..? What is the most important factor when it comes to a phone's battery life? Easy, it's the screen being on. You can leave a phone in sleep mode for days and it's fine. Point being, an unnecessary larger screen that you cannot even notice the difference, that's a sick amount of additional battery drain on devices which already have sub-par battery life. The issue here is technology advances an immense amount spec-wise throughout the timespan of just a year, but batteries, they have not. There is only so much you can do with a battery, and the size of that battery. So lets make the one thing that has the most drain on a phone, and make it LARGER. The ONLY use for having a 1080p screen on that display is for being able to say to your friends, hey guys, I have a 1080p display, muahahahaha... One other reason, which is the ONLY one that is sensible, would be that you can hook it up to a 1080p TV and it will look a bit better than hooking up a 720p screen to a TV. So unless you're planning on hooking up your phone to a TV much more than you are going to use it as an actual phone, having a 1080p is a ridiculous thing to add. The only reason some competitors are going and throwing them out there is because of the people who are so held up on specs, over what is practical. People like you. If they made BB10 in a 720p display and a 1080p display, having the prices just a tiny bit different, maybe 50-100 price difference, it's not worth the added battery drain on my phone to get the more ppi which our eyes cannot even notice the difference.
You my friend are actually falling into the whole marketing specs in the mobile industry. You are taking away what is practical and trying to get "better" because it makes you feel better. You have no idea how much of an added battery drain that many more pixels adds to the phone. Also, go and check out the 1080p display mobile phone in comparison to a 720p device PLEASE before you go and say that 1080p LOOKS BETTER... Because it simply doesn't.. What is more important is the type of screen & glass they choose to use in manufacturing. That plays a larger role x1000 over having 380ppi over having 320ppi. It's not very complicated, our eyes have a limit as to how sharp we can see something. Holding a 720p device up as close to your eyes as possible, you wont even notice the difference, and who in the he11 is even going to need to hold their phone that close to their face.
It's not very difficult to understand why 1080p is so pointless in such a small device.. It's just a buzzword just like Apple's "Retina Display" in the iPhone which actually has LESS PPI than the new BB10 phones.

It is actually going to be a real challenge for them to sell the next l-series device in some ways since 720p will be about the limit to that size, they seem to have enough memory to cope for a number of years and increasing the screen size slightly would be at the expense of pixel density so that only leaves a cpu upgrade, so putting off that upgrade until there are more options for them makes sense and expanding their range allows them to do that more readily.

Anyone know what BlackBerryScoop is referring to?
"#boxingdayleak - The Infinity Project is an R&D project that will revolutionize and extend battery life on mobile devices. "
Sounds interesting. Maybe RIM found a way to extend battery life?!

I believe it may have something to do with the fuel cell patent the were awarded a while back, maybe that combined with some new research and testing they have been doing has yielded something great. Maybe, just maybe blackberry will put out a device that has a very long battery life, imagine a battery that can last 3 - 4 days, even a week?

I think that like those leaked Aristo specs we will eventually see a return (see 5810/20) to a non-removable battery on some models due to the amount of space it saves on a device, but it seems highly unlikely that they would entirely drop a simple means of differentiating their devices by reducing flexibility across the entire range.
