We have more or less heard about the devices that will be coming in 2011 from GSM carriers but things have been much quieter on the CDMA side. I know this has been leaving many CDMA users wary since the latest device is still the Bold 9650. Courtesy of the CrackBerry team we now have a clear picture of what RIM has in store for us in 2011 for CDMA carriers and I have to say it is a real doozy. The lineup includes the Monaco, Sedona, Montana, and even a totally new Curve Touch called the Malibu!
Just as a simple explanation the BlackBerry Bold Touch Montana is the CDMA version of the Dakota. The new curve Sedona is the CDMA version of the Apollo. The Monaco Touch is a refresh of the Storm line. Last of all we have a totally new Curve Touch which is a whole new beast. The slide deck confirms that the CDMA devices will be using Qualcomm processors ranging from 800Mhz to 1.2Ghz which is sweet. Other things I spotted was mention of a new OS 6.1 “Lite” version which is interesting and the Bold Touch Montana makes mention of running as a mobile hotspot on both 2.4 AND 5Ghz channels.
Let us know if you spot anything else juicy!
