What to expect in the next BlackBerry

Culture
There's some juice out on Blackberry. I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNEt Update. You've heard around the lanes about a new Blackberry phone for over a year now. Well, it seems some specs have leaked regarding the first Blackbery 10L series all touchscreen smartphone. The website Tech Radar reports that it got a hold of research in motions of visual training documents which say the phone will have a 4.2 inch high definition display, 2 gigs of RAM and 16 gigs of storage. They'll be two cameras, a front-facing 2 megapixel camera that can record in 720p and the back has 8 megapixels with a flash and can record video in 1080p. It also will be able to tap in to 4G LTE connection speeds. These specs are typical of today's smartphones but really need something more than typical to help it rebound in the smartphone space. We're expecting that phone to be unveiled at an event later this month. Gaming giants Nintendo and Play Station also seemed to be pairing to shake things up. Reports were out that Nintendo is changing its corporate structure to combine the teams that handle consoles and handhelds. Before each department was separate but by combining the minds of both teams. Nintendo believes it'll lead to the creation of the next generation of hardware. And Sony's vice-president of Home Entertainment hinted that the next generation Play Station 4 maybe announced in the coming months. In an interview with a Chilean News website, the Sony executive implied that that Play Station product maybe ready to be unveiled by the time the electronic entertainment expo happens in June. But that's not the only Play Station news. A white version of the Play Station 3 is coming to North America. Best Buy's Canadian and US-based websites posted white versions of the 500 gig PS3 that will be bundled with 3 games and cost $300. The Canadian site says the units will arrive in stores on January 27th. But the US sites just says coming soon. The white version was launched late last year in Japan. And speaking of Best Buy, you'll start to see the Leap motion control system on sale in stores. Leap is a device that gives you the ability to control computer program by just moving your hands and it's accurate to a 100mm. Leap motion also just made a deal to bundled revised with Asus PC computers. You can also pre-order it for $70 on the Leap website. Looking ahead to later this month, Google will be holding 2 hackathons for developers to create programs to work on the Google glass headset. And Microsoft Surface Pro will be arriving in the coming weeks according to a tweet from Microsoft unlike the Surface that's out now, this will be a computer that has no restrictions. It could be a tablet that could do everything a PC cam. Prices start at $900. That's your tech news update. You can get links to all the stories I've mentioned out at blogs cnet.com/update. For our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey.
