The Cyclone will reportedly come with YouTube and Netflix built in, although, if the device does ever make it to market, there's every chance the UK will wind up with different companies supplying the content. Nerdberry says the Cyclone will launch in the autumn.
We heard whispers of such a device earlier in the month. Allegedly RIM's media hub would run the same QNX operating system as the PlayBook and the rumoured , which supposedly will pack a 4.3-inch touchscreen.
