BlackBerry Curve Touch leaks ahead of MWC 2011
Not a keyboard in sight for RIM's next smartphone
The BlackBerry Curve has found favour with a lot of people since its launch due to its decent keyboard, workmanlike-yet-useable OS and a mid-range price that’s seen it on a myriad tariffs for free.
It seems that maker RIM is set to take one of those key strengths away from the Curve’s follow up though, as these leaked shots from CrackBerry.com show. This is the BlackBerry Curve Touch, an upcoming handset featuring a fully touch-based interface in lieu of a keyboard.
Spec-wise we’re looking at a mid-range 800MHz Qualcomm processor with 512MB of RAM, powering the 3.25-inch HGVA touchscreen. There’s also inbuilt NFC tech, GPS and a 5-Meg camera.
Look out for the Curve Touch at Mobile World Congress next month. Would you be keen on a keyboard-less BlackBerry or should RIM stick to what they know? Let us know on the T3 Twitter feed.
