BGR today posted that RIM has cancelled some of their upcoming smartphone codenamed Colt and Milan. RIM aims to focus on just one device that they will use to launch BlackBerry 10 OS later this year. Jonathan Geller wrote on BGR:

Now, we have heard from multiple sources that the BlackBerry Milan that leaked last month was in fact was never a QNX smartphone, but a BlackBerry 7 device with a slightly different design identity. Regardless, the Milan has been cancelled as well. We’re told carriers balked at the idea of carrying a BlackBerry 7 phone so similar to the BlackBerry Torch at this point in time. The only phone RIM is working on bringing to market right now is the BlackBerry London. We have been told that RIM is currently shopping the London with carriers, and while it still looks very much like the image published by The Verge in November, there have been some slight design changes made.
