Images and specifications for new hitherto unseen BlackBerry messaging phones have surfaced online, as it looks to build on the huge sales for the Torch and the warm critical reception afforded its latest operating system.
Unearthed by Crackberry, the Monaco Touch features a 3.7-inch touchscreen, plus 4GB of internal memory, a none too shabby five megapixel camera and a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm processor to keep everything ticking over smoothly.
And in line with the highest-end smartphones we’re seeing of late (CF: the Google Nexus S), it’ll also pack support for Near Field Communication (NFC) technology for contactless payments and tethering too.
Specs for the second leaked smartie, the BlackBerry Sedonda, are thinner on the ground. But we do know that it’ll also pack NFC support, plus A-GPS, an 800Mhz processor and all your standard connectivity options (think: Bluetooth and Wi-Fi).
UK availability and carriers for both handsets have yet to be confirmed. But they’re expected to drop around August or September this year.
