While the BlackBerry apollo and sedona are looking to be the next update to the entry level BlackBerry Curve line in a non-touchscreen format, following those devices a touchscreen variant is on the way. Pictured above is the BlackBerry codenamed malibu, the CDMA flavor of what will likely go to market as the BlackBerry Curve Touch, which is slated to be released in late 2011/early 2012 as the first Curve to lack a keyboard. Proposed Specs include:
- Processor: Qualcomm MSM 8655 800MHz CPU
- Radio: CDMA - EvDo Rev A
- Display: 3.25" 480x360 HVGA
- Navigation: Trackpad & Nav Keys
- Keypad: Virtual QWERTY
- Camera: 5 MP (with HD Video recording)
- Memory: 1GB Flash + 512MB RAM, Hot Swap MicroSD slot
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
- GPS: Autonomous & A-GPS
- Connectivity: NFC, Micro USB, Bluetooth 2.1
- Sensors: Ambient Light Sensor, accelerometer
While the malibu is the CDMA Curve Touch, it only makes sense that a GSM version is in the works too. Looking like a sweet entry level BlackBerry!
