BlackBerry Dakota and new BlackBerry Curve Apollo pictured
While RIM hasn’t announced any new smartphones at CES 2011 last week, the Canadian company is surely getting ready to introduce some new handsets soon.
Two of them might be the BlackBerry Dakota (we’ve heard about this moniker back in the autumn of 2009) and the BlackBerry Apollo.
According to BGR, the Dakota is RIM’s next high-end smartphone. It should feature a 2.8 inch VGA capacitive touchscreen display, BlackBerry OS 6.1, full QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi, 3G mobile hotspot, NFC, 5MP camera, HD video recording, 768MB of RAM, and 4GB of on-board memory.
Reportedly, the BlackBerry Dakota is only 10.5mm thick and looks like this:
As for the BlackBerry Apollo, this seems to be a next-generation Curve. BGR says it will also run BlackBerry OS 6.1, featuring a HVGA (480 x 360) screen, HSPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, 5MP camera, 512MB of RAM, and an 800MHz processor.
The Apollo should, of course, be cheaper than the Dakota – although exact details on pricing are not available yet. More info as we get it.
