They are launching new BlackBerry Bold, BlackBerry Curve, and BlackBerry Torch 2, and the most powerful and closest Android/iPhone competitor: BlackBerry Storm 3. The Blackberry Storm 3 specifications are pretty impressive and will definitely position this Storm againt other top smartphones in the market. Storm 3 brings all the much awaited features including a high resolution display 800 x 480-pixel display. Storm 3 would feature an optical trackpad, not sure why.
The biggest upgrade would of course be in the core processor of the smartphone which nearly doubles from 600Mhz to 1.2Ghz.
RIM identifies Storm 3 under the codename of Monaco and Monza. Its still doubtful if they would be called as Storm 3 or a totally new line of devices, but what we’ve is for sure is its Specs.
