Yanko Design tackled the Blackberry Windows Phone (concept)


We know Blackberry is currently circling the drain, and has refused offers by Microsoft to license Windows Phone.

This has however not stopped Yanko Design from imagining what such as Blackberry Windows Phone would look like.

The Blackberry Wind (which signifies the “Wind of change” and the new OS “WINDows”) exemplifies elegance and sobriety, featuring a unique Industrial Design, including the chamfered corners (on the top and the bottom) and the wide polycarbonate line on the back, which comes on the front to highlight the speaker and create the Windows Phone OS key.

The specs sees the device having a 1.5 Ghz dual core processor, 1 GB RAM, 4 Inch 1024×600 (I’m sure that can be fixed) LCD display protected by Gorilla Glass 2 and LTE connectivity, and sporting only an 8mm thickness.

The handset as imagined would have an 8 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front camera and sport a unique Sony-style jog dial.

While obviously only a concept, the designer notes the potential of the BlackBerry Wind concept sounds too good, with the ultimate professional phone bearing the security and agility of BlackBerry along with the competence of MS Office.  Makes one wonder why Blackberry could not see the synergies themselves.
