Leaked BlackBerry Roundup: New Torch2, Storm3, Bold Touch
BlackBerry "Storm 3/Touch" 9860/9850
The BlackBerry "Touch 9860," codenamed "Monza" and thought to be a successor to RIM's BlackBerry Storm2 95xx device, has been unofficially dubbed the "Storm 3." This device is perhaps the sleekest, best-looking handheld of the three highlighted in this post. It looks a bit like the Storm2, but thinner and more "modern-looking," and will have a trackpad for improved navigation.
Like the Torch2 9810, the BlackBerry Touch 9860 smartphone will run RIM's BlackBerry 6.1 mobile OS, with support for NFC. And it is expected to pack a powerful 1.2GHz processor, 768MB of RAM, but unlike the new Torch, the Touch 9860 has less on-board storage--just 4GB--and a higher resolution display at 800x480 (WVGA). The Touch 9860 should also have the largest display of any BlackBerry at 3.7 inches, measured diagonally.
The Touch 9860 also employs a brand new, 1230 mAh "BlackBerry J-M1" battery.
And RIM should release a CDMA version of the Touch 98xx, which will likely be called the Touch 9850--codenamed "Monaco."
