BlackBerry Seawolf and Aurora get tossed into the codename soup

Chris Ziegler

RIM hasn't even had the opportunity to announce the Kickstart 9100 -- much less release it -- but it looks like we might already have some intel leaking out on the first BlackBerry flip's successor. In RIM parlance, a "10" tacked on to a model number is often a sign that a GPS receiver lurks within; sure enough, metadata obtained by Boy Genius Report lists GPS support in the 9110 "Seawolf." There's also mention of an "Aurora," indicated to be a member of the 8100 (Pearl) series, though its device ID curiously matches that of the Thunder / Storm so it's possible that the two projects were merged at some point. Are we crazy for missing the days of yore when RIM's model names were nothing more than four solid, reliable, old-fashioned digits?
