BlackBerry Torch 2, Apollo (Curve), Monaco (Storm 3) and Dakota (Bold) Pics and Specs!

Pictures of the brand new devices RIM has been working on have surfaced and they look very nice. From what I've learned about the specs, these are much improved versions. More details below.

The BlackBerry Dakota. (Bold)
Looks like a tribute to the Bold 9000 in terms of size and style. It Mixes the full QWERTY with a touchscreen and records HD video. Very sweet.
The BlackBerry Monaco (Storm 3)

  • 1.2GHz processor
  • 3.7-inch 800 x 480 capacitive display
  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
  • Tri-band UMTS/HSPA
  • 5-megapixel camera with 720p video recording
  • 8GB eMMC (storage for apps and data), 512MB of RAM
  • microSD slot
  • Magnetometer
  • Proximity sensor
  • Accelerometer
  • Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
  • 2.4GHz b/g/n and 5GHz a/n Wi-Fi + UMA
  • 3G Mobile hotspot

  • 1230 mAh battery
  • BlackBerry OS 6.1
  • OpenGL ES 2.0

Full specs of the Apollo:
  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
  • Tri-band UMTS/HSPA 7.2Mbps
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • Wi-Fi b/g/n
  • GPS
  • NFC
  • 512MB of eMMC, 512MB of RAM
  • 5-megapixel camera with flash
  • HVGA 480 x 360 display
  • 1050 mAh battery
  • Tavor MG-1 800MHz CPU
  • BlackBerry OS 6.1
  • 11mm thin
The BlackBerry Torch 2

Here's what I've found for specs of the Torch 2:
  • 1.2GHz processor
  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
  • Tri-band HSPA 14.4Mbps
  • 3.2-inch VGA 640 x 480 capacitive display
  • 8GB built-in memory
  • 512MB RAM
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • GPS
  • NFC
  • 5MP camera with flash
  • Magnetometer
  • 1300 mAh battery
  • BlackBerry OS 6.1
  • OpenGL ES
  • 14.6mm thin
Which one do you want? I'm leaning towards the Torch 2 but it looks like it doesn't support HD video recording. The Dakota and Storm 3 do support it, but I love the big touchscreen-full keyboard combo.

  1. The blackberry Torch 9800, is the latest device from the makers of Blackberry RIM. This smart phone is very similar to other devices from Blackberry except this smart phone has enhanced touch input capabilities and improved OS.
