Anybody else getting used to RIM slightly altering some internal specs and releasing a revision instead of a new device? They did it with the Storm, Curve, Tour, and now with the Bold 9700. We knew that the BlackBerry Bold 9780 was coming but this latest training slide deck leaked by the BoyGenius shows us how little has changed in a year.
The new BlackBerry Bold R020 was targeted for October 2010 and will have:
- Powerful Processor at 624Mhz (RIM is screwing around saying that a 2 year old processor is “Powerful”)
- BlackBerry OS 6
- Internal memory increased to 512MB
- 5MP camera
- Coming in both a camera and non camera version
Anybody else wondering why RIM is going to rerelease the 9700? Why not create the ultimate BlackBerry 10000+ without using recycled parts. If anything these slight upgrades for the Tour and now the Bold really annoy current owners since there is not enough changed to warrant an upgrade beyond waiting for RIM to release BlackBerry 6.
What do you think?
