Comments

The new BlackBerry Curve 9350/9360/9370 is official and it really rounds out the new line of BlackBerry 7 devices. When you stand back and look at the new Torch, Bold, Storm and Curve, you definitely see how RIM is progressing into a more consumer-centric world while still giving business users the core needs such as security, solid keyboard and price options. Keep on reading to learn more about the new Curves (model numbers are 9350, 9360 and 9370 but we really wish we could call it something else like the Curve 5).

Details of the new BlackBerry Curve have been circulating the Internet and it has some decent specs that are typical of RIM’s incremental upgrade strategy. The device is thinner, even smaller than the 9700, and it uses an EM1 battery. While the device won’t be running the QNX OS, it will feature OS 6.1 which comes with some cool new APIs for developers to make innovative apps for the device. Hit the jump for more pics.

Three Awesome New BlackBerrys Get Leaked: New Curve, Torch and Dakota

Comments

Dakota
The BlackBerry Dakota

Today was an great day for BlackBerry leaks as the upcoming Curve, Torch and all new Dakota made an appearance. Both the Curve and the Torch are packing magnetometers, as well as BlackBerry OS 6.1. A magnetometer, which can be found in a lot of smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S, measures the strength and/or direction of the magnetic field, which helps a lot with mapping apps.

Of all the leaks, the upcoming BlackBerry Dakota is probably the most interesting. Many BlackBerry users have been looking forward to a BlackBerry with the original Bold form factor. The smartphone fits nicely into your hands and we’ve been saying for some time on this site that we want the form factor to come back. Well it’s coming back, and it’s going to make a huge entrance. The Dakota features a touchscreen and QWERTY keyboard, as well as HD video recording.

Something that’s probably disconcerting about these leaks from RIM’s perspective, is that users are going to start wondering whether or not these devices will get the QNX OS. The reality is that these devices are what’s going to carry us to 2012, and they won’t be sporting the QNX OS. Will BlackBerry users, knowing this, hold off on purchasing a new BlackBerry until they hear about upcoming devices that will be getting the QNX bump, which could probably be considered OS 7?

Hit the jump for specs on all three devices.
