1.2GHz processor caps off impressive overhaul

Will NFC tech make an appearance in RIM's updated slider?

Just bought a BlackBerry Torch not two months ago? Time to curse the skies as it seems that RIM has intentions of bringing out a sequel with beefed up specs – possible in time for Mobile World Congress in February.

The Torch 2, as hinted at by BGR, looks to fix a lot of the main internal problems that dogged its predecessor, namely the sluggish computing power. The new model will have a 1.2GHz processor with 512MB of RAM, which should see it whip around BlackBerry OS 6.1.

There’s also, according to reports, going to be NFC tech bundled inside – taking inspiration from the Nexus S. This’ll allow it to send data wirelessly in a flash at short range. The original Torch failed to make much of a splash at launch. Are you keen on an upgraded version? Let us know on the T3 Twitter feed.
