The BlackBerry hardware keeps on coming; rounding out a day full of RIM smartphone news, a pic has showed up of what’s supposed to be a new model we haven’t touched upon yet, codenamed Orlando.
N4BB got its hands on the image, revealing a Curve-like design but apparently including touchscreen input in addition to the trackpad. Unfortunately, we don’t have the elaborate spec-sheet to go with it as we saw with the new Bold Touch earlier today.
Like all these upcoming BlackBerrys, the Orlando should come out of the gate running the latest BBOS 6.1 (no word on if it will be stuck with the “lite” version). We’re just guessing about performance at this point, but RIM sure seems to have a love affair with single-core 1.2GHz Snapdragons lately. Depending on the price point it’s trying to hit with Orlando, this one may follow suit with the rest of the group.
With all these new BlackBerrys, do you think RIM is making the right call by just taking existing designs and bumping up the hardware specs, or would you like to see some more innovation come out of the company?
