    BlackBerry Torch 2 Revealed - to come with OS 6.1



    RIM is back to old tactics of refreshing a already made device. But this time it looks like RIM is trying to change it up a bit more with a new take on its QWERTY, horizontal-slider: the BlackBerry Torch 2. We love power, and BB users will be happy about the confirmed 1.2 GHz CPU that the BlackBerry Torch 2 will come equipped with. The full specs are...

    • 1.2GHz processor
    • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
    • Tri-band HSPA 14.4Mbps
    • 3.2-inch VGA 640 x 480 capacitive display
    • 8GB built-in memory
    • 512MB RAM
    • Bluetooth 2.1
    • GPS
    • NFC
    • 5-megapixel camera with flash
    • Magnetometer
    • Accelerometer
    • Proximity sensor
    • 1300 mAh battery
    • BlackBerry OS 6.1
    • OpenGL ES
    • 14.6mm thin

    Yes, their is some similarity to the original Torch, internally, however, you can see that there have been quite a few changes made. The BlackBerry Torch 2 is shooting for a late Q3 release with AT&T.

    I've been keeping my eye out on this.

    I am glad RIM is finally advancing in processor power. They need to in order to run the next generation of rich media apps.

    Love to see that prcessor being beefed up :P
    The leaks we got for eg the 9700 are to big.
    And the looks are sweet. Unlike the torch 1 and 2 and 9700 and 9780, wich look the same, they got some nice designs.
    Hope the Dakota (looks like the old Bold 9000 in a way) and Apollo are for real and what this 6.1 will be like.

    I also imagine that OS 6.1 is the steppingstone for QNX.

    ... so hopefully devices released with 6.1 will be QNX compatible. If they aren't that would be a stupid move on behalf of RIM.

    RIM is making more stupid moves.
    Eg the playbook delays.
    Just hope they catch up, better processor, but also a smooth OS and bring something new. Till now all BB devices are pretty much the same in general, Im missing the WOW factor...

    They aren't thinking enough ahead. Which is why so many were upset at OS 6 being released and finding out that their fairly new device wasn't compatible.
