New BlackBerry Touch Monaco shows up in hands-on photos
Previously seen in a leaked RIM 2011 roadmap (alongside other unannounced BlackBerry smartphones), the BlackBerry Touch Monaco has now appeared in some live, hands-on photos.
According to BGR, the BlackBerry Touch will run BlackBerry OS 6.1. This doesn’t look too different from 6.0, but it will require users to login with a BlackBerry ID.
Reportedly, the handset is faster than any other BlackBerry – which is understandable, since it seems that it’s powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor. Other features should include a 3.7 inch WVGA display, NFC, 5MP camera with 720p video recording, and 768MB RAM.
The new BlackBerry Touch should be released in two versions: CDMA for Verizon (currently codenamed Monaco), and GSM (currently codenamed Monza). It’s said that the new smartphone would be out in three to four months, and RIM may officially announce it in May.
