So far from what we’ve seen 2011 looks to be a pretty big year for RIM. BGR has leaked out pretty much RIM’s entire 2011 smartphone lineup, and so far we’re pretty excited. Thus far we’ve seen the BlackBerry Dakota, a full QWERTY and Touchscreen hybrid, which includes a body much like the Bold 9000, only better. We’ve also seen the next generation BlackBerry Curve smartphone, which will be the entry level BlackBerry for 2011. And let’s not forget the BlackBerry Torch 2 which will give the Torch series a much needed bump spec wise. Last but not least will be the BlackBerry Storm 3 (or whatever they decide to brand it). The Storm 3 will be a great step in the right direction, getting rid of SurePress, bigger processor, HD video, and much more. For all we know there also could be some more devices hiding in the RIM HQ that didn’t get leaked, but this is a great start.
RIM looks to be focusing on bigger processors, bigger screens, NFC (near field communication), mobile hotspot, HD video recording, and the slightly updated BlackBerry OS 6.1 – all this year. BGR managed to get the entire slides for the BlackBerry leaks he posted this week, and this gives us a closer look at the BlackBerry Dakota (QWERTY/Touchscreen hybrid), Apollo (the next-gen Curve), Monaco (the Storm 3) and the Torch 2. Check out the slides below if you want an inside look at the next BlackBerry smartphones…
