BlackBerry Aurora Information Surfacing

Aurora: the official device name?

The new Indonesian device from Merah Putih has been popping up online at retailers today. It seems that the name has been published, albeit quietly, as the BlackBerry Aurora.

While some retailers have small preorder hints about the Aurora’s impending name/release, others are offering much more detail. Lazada promises three color options in Silver, Gold, and Black, as well as offering pricing info at RP3499.000.

The release date is still not confirmed although some information suggests it could be as soon as March 3.

    The device looks nice in the photo. Distinctly BlackBerry, especially with the logo on the front of the device.

      Really? I heard someone say that it looked rather iPhone-esque.

    I’d like to buy it. And a possible price of about 240/250,- Euro/US-Dollar would be really awesome! Most wanted function to me will be the DualSIM option. :)

    I’m curious to know whether this device is aimed at one specific region and whether the licencing of different companies means we will be seeing a more region centred focus for BlackBerry hardware?
