RIM likes to use cities as code-names for upcoming devices.


RIM handed out the BlackBerry 10 Alpha devices at the BlackBerry Jam session that was held alongside BlackBerry World 2012 in Orlando last week. With some digging, fans have found out code-names for upcoming BlackBerry devices and N4BB has published the following list of devices that are yet to make an appearance:

# R044 – Nevada 0x8400270A,1
# R051 – Winchester2 LTE 0x0c001a06,1
# R052 – Winchester2 HSPA+ 0x0d001a06,1
# R053 – Winchester2 LTE HSPA+ 0x0e001a06,1
# R061 – Colt 0×04002307,1
# R072 – London 0×04002607,1
# R073 – Blackforest 0×04002706,1
# R084 – Nashville 0x8500270A,1
# R085 – Naples 0x8600270A,1

From that list above, Nevada could be the keyboard based BlackBerry 10 device while Winchester is probably the 3G version of the current BlackBerry PlayBook. Colt is the Alpha Dev unit that was handed out last week and London is expected to be the first official BlackBerry 10 launch device. Finally, BlackForest is supposedly the 10″ version of the PlayBook and we have no info on Nashville and Naples.
