As detailed in our source story from The Droid Guy, the latest leaklists specs for a purported Aritsa BB 10 phone, including a quad-coreprocessor, a system on a chip adding 4G LTE connectivity, a 4.6-inchscreen, 2GB of RAM (making it the first RIM phone with that muchmemory), 16GB internal memory, and a 2800mAh battery that could last upto 20 hours. Another recent leak contained alleged specs for a BB10Laguna phone.

The Droid Guy concludes that the Aristo, which would also be RIM’sthinnest BlackBerry phone, could signal that “RIM might be back with avengeance” and is “trying to wrestle with high-end Android and WindowsPhone 8 devices.”
