BlackBerry Bold Touch only unveiling by RIM in May?

New Bold smartphone to be star of the show at May event

RIM looks set to make the BlackBerry Bold Touch its only major announcement at this year’s BlackBerry World event.

That is according to BGR who’ve heard from two independent sources that the decision to unveil just the much rumoured Bold handset was a last minute change.

With six products from RIM expected be announced before the end of the year, that is sure to come as something of a surprise for many.

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.
