A few BlackBerry 10 enthusiasts have been scoring the newly announced platform for any secrets that lurk under the hood and it looks like they haven’t been coming up empty. J Duke from OSBB went through the BlackBerry 10 system file on the manufacturer’s Developer Alpha device and by keying in ‘file:///radio/etc/sv.numbers’ into the browser bar, a list of devices with internal names which will apparently be using the upcoming BlackBerry platform comes out for all to see.
They are # RO44 – 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 the list of devices attached with codenames used by RIM, we can see Colt which is the developer device that was given out to developers during the launch of the platform last week, Blackforest which is apparently, but unconfirmed to be the unannounced 10-inch PlayBook while the Winchester2’s are the 3G and 4G models of the current 7-inch PlayBook. As for the devices that we do not know about yet, they are the Nevada, Napes and Nashville. We hope that more people are tearing into the crux of their devices so we can continue to distribute interesting tit-bits of information like this to you.
