RIM's Monza and Dakota Plans Leaked Again

If RIM thought that it would put its ambitious projects - BlackBerry Bold Touch 9860 and Torch 9900 into hush-hush production without letting anyone know, it probably stretched its luck too far, this time.

Apparently, promo videos of its BlackBerry Bold Touch 9860 and Torch 9000 have been circulating in the bylanes of the internet. Thereby, giving everyone a glimpse of what RIM has been up to, all this while. These 30-second clips showcase the highlighted features of both the phones. The BlackBerry Bold Touch 9860 has been codenamed Monza, while Torch 9000 has been codenamed Dakota.

Owing to a copyright claim, the videos have been rendered inaccessible. However, here’s a low down on what you can expect out of BlackBerry Bold Touch 9860 and Torch 9900.
