BlackBerry Touch video guides show final design

A second BlackBerry phone slipped out on Monday night through a leak of tutorial videos that confirmed more of RIM's plans. The CDMA version of the BlackBerry Touch, nicknamed the Monaco, is much as expected and has a taller screen for BlackBerry 6.1. CrackBerry's sighting shows software similar to that on the Bold Touch apart from the need for a touchscreen keyboard and supports multi-touch pinch to zoom, both on the web and in photos.

The Storm2 sequel should have much of the same hardware on the inside as the Bold Touch, starting from the 1.2GHz processor and moving on to faster 3D graphics and NFC for short-range wireless payments. As the first full-touch BlackBerry, it should have the highest resolution display of any BlackBerry yet at 480x800.

RIM may show the BlackBerry Touch at BlackBerry World in early May. Whether or not it ships soon afterwards isn't certain, but a GSM equivalent, the Monza, is also in the works.
