BlackBerry Bold Touch leaks in YouTube tutorial video

Pinch to zoom to land on upcoming BlackBerry handsets

Leaked video tutorials for upcoming BlackBerry handsets have appeared in YouTube, outing a range of yet to be announced touchscreen devices.

Having originally leaked late last week the BlackBerry Bold Touch, reportedly going by the codename the BlackBerry Monaco or Monza, strangely both top class European race tracks, the new videos, which were quickly pulled from the video sharing site but have since landed elsewhere on the web, offer a tantalising look at what RIM has in store for future handsets.

Sticking with the tried and tested form factor of the hugely successful BlackBerry Bold, RIM is to retain the massively popular full QWERTY keyboard found on the device whilst adding a capacitive touchscreen that will bring multi point gesture controls to a BlackBerry handset.

Taking hints and tips from the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook, a tablet device that will utilise a full array of gesture controls, the upcoming Bold Touch will, judging by the leaked video content, allow users to make use of features such as pinch to zoom and a fluid muti-directional scrolling UI.

Would you like to see a well worked BlackBerry touchscreen device or do you believe it would do away from the brands base specialities? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds. Confirmed release dates or prices for the leaked Touch handsets are currently unknown.
