The BlackBerry Bold Touch, which has also currently gone under the codenames Monza and Monaco, is expected to add a capacitive touchscreen to the massively popular QWERTY keyboard-toting handset.

A recent leaked YouTube tutorial video also suggests that the device will allow users to make use of features such as pinch-to-zoom and a fluid multi-directional scrolling UI.

T3 will be at BlackBerry World which kicks off on May 3rd, so you’ll be the first to know what RIM has in store.
