For many, combining two rival products in a single one seems highly unlikely and hard to imagine, but there are also those who believe that such a combination would result in great things.
Vietnamese designer Pham Tran Hai
is one of those people, and he came up with a BlackBerry concept handset
that is powered by Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system.
In fact, the smartphone is based on the upcoming Windows Phone 8 operating system, and features what some might expect from such a device: a luxury feel and look.
For that, the designer imagined the new BlackBerry PlayPhone device with a wooden back case, in one stance, and with a golden plate on the back, in another.
Regardless the type of material users would choose, the concept device remains as impressive, especially given its simple, straight lines and minimalistic design.
The specs list this smartphone
comes with is impressive as well, starting with the 4.3-inch AMOLED touchscreen display on the front, capable of delivering an HD (1280 x 720 pixel) resolution.
Powered by a quad-core application processor complemented by 1GB of RAM, the BlackBerry PlayPhone would be capable of offering some nice performance levels, that’s for sure.
It also comes with 32GB of internal memory, while being powered by a 2000MAh battery. It also sports a scroll wheel on the side for navigation or volume up and down (this is a reminiscence from the old BlackBerries).
On the back, the new device would sport a 12-megapixel photo snapper capable of shooting videos in full HD resolution and powered by Nokia’s PureView technology. A front camera is also present on this device, to enable video calling.
Having Windows Phone 8 loaded on a BlackBerry smartphone
could seem farfetched for some, but this BlackBerry PlayPhone concept looks appealing enough to make us start dreaming of it becoming a reach device, one should agree. You can have a look at more images with it on DeviantArt
