Blackberry Touch pictures leak ahead of unveiling

Photos of a BlackBerry touchscreen phone codenamed Monaco/Monza appear online

New pictures surfaced today of an unannounced BlackBerry touchscreen device believed to be codenamed Monaco and Monza, for the US and GSM versions respectively.

Described as "a thinner, faster and sexier BlackBerry handset", the device will pick up where the Storm 2 left off although it is rumoured to be cutting all ties from its largely disappointing older sibling.

Abandoning BlackBerry's unpopular SurePress technology and ditching the Storm name, the phone might be called the  "BlackBerry Touch" at launch and will be one of the first devices to run RIM's OS 6.1 operating system.

The OS is expected to be only a minor update to 6.0 with more focus on 'the cloud', requiring users to login with a BlackBerry ID in order to access cloud services such as remote-back ups, easier sharing of contact info and restoring devices.

With BlackBerry World coming up in May, RIM is expected to launch this new device along with three more touchscreen handsets - the BlackBerry Bold Touch, BlackBerry Curve Touch, and the BlackBerry Torch 2.
