    I've heard of some mystery device coming out around Christmas of this year so maybe that is the tablet. It seems like Aristo with a screen similar in size to a Samsung Note is to be released this September.

    Those specs look drool-worthy and hope it's true.

    I'm intrigues by this. It could be part of some larger M2M vision.

    Or after reading this:
    QNX Development

    And thinking about what this means:
    Bsquare Announces Availability of Mobile Development Platform

    It almost sounds like it is some sort of hardware platform for developers to test with. Might not have mobile phone capabilities. Or it's a test platform so people can develop automobile specific applications.

    But this says nothing. But, this is available now .... so they must have some information available to customers.

    I dont think its just a dev phone would defeat purpose of mobile computing no??.Would suck if its limited in function.They named all those features and capabilities so seems like a fully capable phone.Our phones do have a development mode so I beilieve its a proper phone.With the security,balance,note taking, word processing,bbm and qnet capabilitys does'nt make sense to cripple an engineer does'nt add up to BB's vision..

    Its a big deal really this aint your regular dev device this is for M2M industry that use proper Qnx.If a company now wants to create a UI or app for their machine they can do so and test it out live (qnet?).These QNX licenses are serious money I have read they cost 15K+.Dont watch the video I cant seem to hyperlink.Just check out the comment section in this video.10K dev license.



    Qnx is'nt free.Seems pretty smart from me BB get bb10 phones and tablets into the industry as literraly work tools.Looks like they created a new segment of buyers to me.

    Recool, thanks for the link to this thread.

    Both of these form factors also feature UltraHD/4K video support via HDMI output and are one of the first mobile development platforms to include both USB 3.0, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi for quick file transfers, and streaming rates up to 1.3Gbps
    Dayum! USB3, 802.11AC!
    Right now only the SGS4 and some other deice has AC on the market (via Broadcom chipset), yet would be nice to have this on top-end BB10 slate device (smartphone or tablet or BOTH).
