RIM set to launch smartphones running OS 7 tomorrow

RIM has let the cat out of the bag that it will be launching new BlackBerry devices running the latest OS 7 via its Twitter handle. The tweet conveniently coincides with the leak of press shots of the Torch 2 9810 and the Touch/Volt 9860 on PocketNow. Of course, we had exclusively posted live pics and even hands-on of both these devices months ago. We would also be looking out for the launch schedule of the Bold Touch 9900, which was announced at BlackBerry World earlier this year. Hit the break for press shots of the Torch 2 and Touch/Volt.

RIM’s 2011 BlackBerry lineup explained

RIM’s 2011 BlackBerry lineup explained

We broke the news on practically all of RIM’s 2011 BlackBerry smartphones, and even scored some hands-on time with more than a couple of them. We wanted to take a minute to highlight the new products coming out of Waterloo now that all of the phones have leaked in some form. Remember, a lot of these are codenames that obviously won’t make it to retail — this is how the company keeps track of the devices internally and sometimes a single product can have multiple codenames.

BlackBerry Torch 2 hands-on!

BlackBerry Torch 2 hands-on!

We’re not done, folks! In addition to getting some hands-on time with the BlackBerry Touch (Monaco / Monza) and the BlackBerry Bold Touch, we’re back at it again with an exclusive hands-on with the BlackBerry Torch 2. This is really what the original Torch should have been; instead of an underpowered, under-spec’d handset, the Torch 2 really offers a great experience from what we have seen so far. Physically, the unit is identical to the original Torch with the same physical dimensions, though the internal changes are pretty massive — at least, relative to the original Torch. The 640 x 480-pixel display looks absolutely great on the BlackBerry Torch 2, and with a 1.2GHz CPU paired with OS 6.1, this thing could light a fire. We are told that the BlackBerry Torch 2 is tracking for a July release on AT&T, with an announcement at Blackberry World in May, of course. Check out the rest of our BlackBerry Torch 2 photos in our hands-on gallery!
