Another BlackBerry? Not that we don’t like our BB phones, especially for the fact that the Government can’t access them! It looks like there is another one of the Curve series phones to follow Sedona and Apollo. This one’s codenamed Malibu.
According to CrackBerry, Malibu will be a CDMA phone and is likely to sell as BlackBerry Curve Touch. The smartphone features an 800 MHz Qualcomm CPU and will hopefully run on the latest version of BlackBerry OS. Let’s take a look under the hood and see what Malibu is made of:
- 3.25" 480x360 HVGA capacitive touchscreen display
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, A-GPS, NFC
- Bluetooth 2.1
- 5 Megapixel camera with HD video recording
- 1GB Flash + 512MB RAM memory
The rest of the features include an Ambient Light Sensor and an Accelerometer. There’s a trackpad with navigation keys for browsing between the menus and yes, the smartphone still has a virtual QWERTY keypad so that regular BlackBerry people don’t feel out of place.
The smartphone is said to release sometime later this year or in early 2012. We certainly hope that RIM comes out with a GSM variant of Blackberry Curve Touch too.
