BBX-powered BlackBerry Surfboard incoming

It seemed like a good name, especially with an Olympics round the corner. But it now seems like the BlackBerry London is no more. It is now known as the BlackBerry Surfboard. Yes, really.

That's according to TechCrunch, which says the name has been in the offing for quite some time, registered as a trademark back in July 2010. After being in a list of possibles for some time, it is now being wheeled out to head up RIM's next generation of BBX-powered BlackBerry smartphones.

Everything else is said to be as it was, with the super-slim looks presumably unchanged from that leaked shot and the specification still including a TI OMAP dual-core CPU clocked to 1.5GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage, an eight-megapixel rear-facing camera and a two-megapixel front-facing camera.

The launch date is also said to remain unchanged, with a public appearance pencilled in for June 2012.
