Shows off OS7, extended Storm-style body

A developer simulator for the forthcoming Blackberry Torch 9850 (code-named Monaco) has leaked online, providing developers and others with clues to the look and operation of the new model. The unit looks to be using a kind of Storm 2-style body, but the more interesting aspect is that it gives users a chance to explore RIM's Blackberry OS 7 (formerly called OS 6.1), including a new keyboard layout.

The new OS sports a new soft-keyboard layout as well as an improved browser, and will also feature in the company's upcoming "slate" style Blackberry. The software will be of little use to non-developers, as it is in an unstable state, but may satisfy those who want a peek at the upcoming OS and some of its features. The 9850 is expected to launch on the Sprint network sometime in August. A simulator for the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 also leaked recently.
