BlackBerry 9850/9860 handset to be named the Volt?

updated 11:15 pm EDT, Thu May 26, 2011

Other rumors fit the models into the Torch family

RIM is allegedly preparing to name its upcoming touchscreen handset as the BlackBerry Volt, according to a rumor posted on N4BB. The branding would is said to be tied to the Monaco 9850 and Monza 9860 variants, which represent the same external design based on a 3.7-inch touchscreen, but differ in their respective ties to CDMA and GSM networks.

Previous leaks suggest the devices represent the successor to the Storm, lacking a hardware QWERTY keyboard of the Storm slider or touchscreen-equipped Bold Touch 9900. Like the 9900, however, the handsets are said to integrate 1.2GHz processors and 768MB of RAM.

A conflicting rumor has paired the models with the label BlackBerry Touch, while other reports claim RIM will stick with its Torch branding.

The 9850 and 9860 rumored to be on the way to the market sometime in the early summer.
