BlackBerry Touch / Monaco gets manhandled, said to get official in May

1 Apr

Our interest in the BlackBerry Touch (codename Monaco) was piqued when we first caught wind of the device, and we had a feeling it’d be making its way into the wild ever since one showed up in Verizon red around mid-Feburary. Now, BGR has managed to procure an unreleased prototype, and we’ve gotta say that we like what we’re seeing. According to the pub, it should get official at BlackBerry World electronic gadgets in May, and it’ll run OS 6.1 underneath that 800 x 480-pixel screen. The new BB6 is said to use a BlackBerry ID in place of a PIN for certain key functions — a necessary move for non-BB platforms rumored to be getting BBM (a historically PIN-based service). BGR also claims it won’t be getting the Storm nomenclature, so we apologize in advance to the SurePress fanboys. Either way, we’ve got an inkling that we’ll be hearing more as we get closer to May, but unfortunately our dreams of a super AMOLED-equipped Torch running stock Android with a BBM app will just remain figments of our imagination.
