    RUMOR ALERT! Could This Be The New Touch Screen Bold?


    First, there was the Storm and then there was the Storm 2, and there will be a Storm 3. Now there's the Torch and soon, the Torch 2. Will there be an all new touchscreen Bold? Will RIM answer the calls of users wanting a touchscreen that's large like the Bold?

    As soon as the first BlackBerry touchscreen device came out forums and blogs have been abuzz with users wanting a touchscreen phone but with the large form factor of a Bold; something bigger than the Storm series, but without the sliding keyboard of the Torch.

    By the looks of it, RIM is on the run and hopefully answering our calls for a larger phone with the ever-popular Bold size and styling. We think OS 6.0 or QNX would look amazing on both a tall and wide screen!

    We'll keep our eyes out on this one because even if it's a fake picture, we would sure like to see this phone get made! I personally would also like a feature on a touchscreen BlackBerry that allows for SurePress to be enabled and disabled.

    My question to you is: What's your favorite BlackBerry touchscreen?

    That's a PS'd guess from '08 of what the BB Thunder might look like before there were any images of a touch screen BB, which later became the Storm. The screen on the S3 is supposed to be 3.7", over the S2's 3.25" screen, and it will have a capacitive screen (no SurePress), but it won't look like the Bold 9000.

    It would have been cool though. RIM should have gotten on that before Apple jacked the 9000's bezel w/ the iPhone 4.

    We pull batteries, swap bezels, break contracts, and stay up all night. We change OSes like we change underwear. If our phones could make us fly, we still wouldn't be satisfied. We're cut from a different cloth. A better breed. We are BlackBerry.

    Definitely needing a 3.7" screen at least. 4 inch screen size is perfect for touchscreen devices.

    Nice concept. Would be nice to imagine it as one of the first QNX device. That would imply that Lazaridis' CES specks quote would have to be in play. Would be nice to see a dual core QNX on 4" screen. But for full effect and while we're putting our wish list in, lets put it on LTE with international frequencies.
