    [Exclusive] RIM to work with Samsung on QWERTY-equipped Galaxy Note Sequel/Spinoff


    Here's a news story that shouldn't come as too much of a shock to most. RIM, after another disastrous quarter, has finally seen the "writing on the wall" about Android. After firing its CEO, its COO and other top executives last week, RIM just announced a joint venture with Samsung to produce a QWERTY-equipped Galaxy Note spinoff successor. The device will actually have a large, slider-style flip-out QWERTY keyboard to go along with the included stylus, and will supposedly be called the "Galaxy Blackberry Metamorph." It will be RIM's first entry into the Android market and will come with a UI overlay, custom designed by both RIM and Samsung to meet government and corporate quality security standards. Here are the specs that were leaked on the device that is planned for a launch in the first quarter of 2013:
    • Quad-Core Exynos Processor
    • 5.6-inch HD SuperAMOLED Plus Hi-Res display
    • 2GB Ram
    • 32GB Storage
    • Sliding Fold-Out QWERTY Keyboard
    • Custom Blackberry Skinned Corporate Security Version of Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich
    • LED-Equipped Stylus Pen

    Obviously, with these specs, their plan is to stick with the corporate clients that know them well. It actually makes perfect sense that RIM would try to rebuild their image by partnering up with Samsung for their first Android venture. Samsung is pretty much the gold-standard for Android devices right now. What better way to showcase your triumphant return to the mobile landscape with a team-up with the big boy on the Android block? Share your thoughts.

    Maybe it will have a mouse pad like a lap top.

    wait, they are actually moving up to 2GB of ram...about time, i always thought the second worst shortcoming of the newer android phones was that they all still only had 1 GB ram (number 1 worst thing is battery life of course)

    edit: i wont ruin the surprise

    Fold-out keyboard?????

    That sounds way to clunky. Why not make it a slider?
    Either way it will still be huge.

    The only thing that's going to die is RIM.
