The BlackBerry Bold Touch is an interesting device; it looks like your standard BlackBerry but with a few upgrades. It's a full touchscreen device with a full QWERTY keyboard. So far it sounds just like the BlackBerry Torch except that the Bold is not a slider and unlike the Torch, comes equipped with BlackBerry's OS 6.1.
Take a look at the newest specs for the device:"It has yet another new battery and Mobile Hotspot Mode among other things, and hopefully will be on the list of device announcements (that should include the new Curves, BlackBerry Torch 2 and BlackBerry Touch) at BlackBerry World next month." - CrackBerry
