Several Sites Reporting About New BBC100-1 BlackBerry Device

In the last day I noticed that a few sites are reporting about some mystery device BBC100-1 that appeared in Geek Bench. So why do we bring it to your attention? Look again on the device model, and please search on UTB “Aurora”, yes it’s the same one. The tech sites even mention all the Aurora specs and features and a few of them for some reason said that the device code name is “Aurora”.

So lets be clear on this issue. There is no new device that we know of, and the mystery BBC100-1 is already in the market, as the BlackBerry Aurora manufactured by BB Merah Putih for the Indonesian market. We report about the device in late March when the device hit the market.

So why do those sites report about it now ? Because it appeared on Geek Bench 2 days ago for some reason. We know the device will not come to North America or any other market. So as i can see it, those Tech sites are just outdated.

For our Indonesian readers, If you have the BlackBerry Aurora in your hands. Comment Below.

  • I realize its unavailable to me, but it looks good, although I can’t see a slab replacing my Priv.

    A BBM channel I subscribe to mentioned BBM for BB10 is getting a “major update” sometime in summer of 2017.

      À major update for BBM on BB10 “would” be SPECIAL! It’s not as if we don’t deserve, or want one. Blackberry would score some “humongous” size brownie points for that one.
