RIM BlackBerry Bold Touch Revealed Ahead of World Conference

April 30, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Good news to all you BlackBerry fans out there! As we wait for the release of the BlackBerry Bold Touch (Dakota/Montana) at the BlackBerry World Conference, RIM has confirmed the existence of the device on their official website (pulled soon after!). We have for you the snaps ahead of the conference. It’s true that we have been treated with a lot of leaked photos earlier on. In fact, sources say the BlackBerry Dakota will be seen at the release.

However, the Bold Touch made a short appearance on the site with an affirmation that it will come loaded with the BlackBerry 7 OS. An obvious question that would come popping must be as to why BlackBerry is jumping directly from 6th version to a 7th version for this device. The answer would be that the new operating system combines the best aspects of BlackBerry 6 and the PlayBook’s QNX-based OS to form an operating system that will run all of RIM’s smartphones and tablets. Clearly, RIM wants their new device to be portrayed as an improved and modern day version.

The BlackBerry Bold Touch will sport a touchscreen along with a traditional portrait QWERTY that RIM had already made famous. The device has all those features that make a complete smartphone – and they include a 5 megapixel camera with flash and HD video recording, a 2.8 inch touchscreen that gives 640×480 resolution with a magnetometer, accelerometer and a Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE.

Please don’t forget that along with the release at the conference, you may also get a chance to take home some of the free gifts RIM would offer. So get going!
