In the past few months, with the series of Android devices launched at CES 2011 and MWC 2011, it seems that everyone has almost forgotten about the Blackberry.
RIM is planning to launch a couple of new Blackberry smartphones in 2011, and details of quite a few such devices including the Blackberry Storm 3 have already leaked out.
Today, we have come across a video of the Blackberry Storm 3 (codenamed Monaco). The Blackberry Monaco comes with Blackberry OS 6.1 and comes with a nice design. The OS seems very fast and responsive, with an improved UI. It is very slim, at just 11.5 mm.
The Blackberry Monaco comes with a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm processor and has 768 MB RAM. It has 4 GB internal storage and supports up to 32 GB microSD cards.
It is a dual band CDMA phone with EVDO Rev. A connectivity. It comes with a 3.7 inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. It also offers Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 and GPS. It also has NFC connectivity and supports Mobile Hotspot.
It will also have a 5 MP camera with autofocus and flash with support for 720p HD video recording. It is much better than the Blackberry Storm, but doesn’t offer anything that the new generation of Android smartphones, or the iPhone 5 won’t.
