Source code reveals Naples, Nashville, Nevada names for BB 10 devices

A rummaging through the source code of the dev alpha handset RIM distributed to developers at its BlackBerry World event last week has revealed 7 new codenames for upcoming BlackBerry handsets. According to N4BB, J. Duke from the OSBB site found a reference to Nevada, Winchester 2, Colt, London, Blackforest, Nashville, and Naples in the viewable file system. The London was reported on before and is the second version of the dev alpha phone, with Colt the name for the first-revision of the device.

Winchester is believed to be the PlayBook, with Winchester 2 likely to be the 3G and 4G version of the device, as there are three leaked names (Winchester 2 LTE, Winchester 2 HSPA, and Winchester 2 LTE HSPA) listed. Blackforest is believed to be the codename for a 10-inch PlayBook.

No info is known about the Nevada, Naples, and Nashville, however, though they could be part of the same family.

London is expected to become the first BlackBerry phone running on the BlackBerry 10 operating system and may be released as soon as this fall. [via BGR]
