Many current BlackBerry users are stuck with the flagship BlackBerry Bold 9650 as the latest device without any hope for a new device in the near future. The Storm never got a refresh and the Torch does not seem to be coming to CDMA networks anytime soon. Simon over @IntoMobile just spurred up some hope after hearing from three different sources that Sprint may have what seems to be the BlackBerry Bold Touch “Montana” and BlackBerry Storm “Monaco” before the end of Q2 2011.
Don’t get me wrong. The Style is a nice addition but I have yet to see one business person carrying it around and the Curve 9330 is a sorry excuse for a rehashed 8330 that RIM should never have released in the US. The roadmap the CrackBerry team caught last week first confirmed the BlackBerry Bold Touch (Montana) and Storm (Monaco). The thing is that slide has both devices straddling Q3 2011 instead of Q2. Makes me wonder if maybe those timelines were moved up.
Could be interesting to see if RIM manages to push out these devices right around the BlackBerry World Conference in May of 2011! What do you think?
