First Live Images Of The Bold Touch Dakota/Montana

BlackBerry-Montana-CompassThis has been a busy week in BlackBerry news, yesterday we saw the first video of the BlackBerry Monaco and now the N4BB has brought us some live images of the Touch QWERTY combo code name Dakota/Montana. This are better than the usual blurry pictures we get for leaks. The devices looks beautiful in my opinion the exact devices most of us have been asking for this past two years. From the pictures you can tell the device sports an all metal silver frame.

With this new device the first image shows a digital compass and N4BB says the touch screen experience is better than that of the Torch 9800. So far we know that Verizon and T-Mobile will be getting this device, and we expect RIM to announce them at this years BB World Congress. T-Mobile will likely launch the device around July if not earlier.

  1. WANT!

  2. Oh man! Now that I see live pics of this beauty I’m feeling quite a bit better about having to wait for QNX smartphone integration. Looks amazing!

  3. Battery is J-M1. I want specs on that. Looks like the size of the D-X1 in the 9630/9650 but how much more juice does it hold?

  4. So excited about this phone. It will be my next bb.

  5. Very sexy both the stats and the pictures

  6. nice five year old phone. (that isn’t even available yet) this is why rim is going out of business

  7. Did any body notice the glowing edges around the trackpad?
    I really like that because in the dark, you have no idea where that trackpad is, it’s just too small and very smooth to identify the edges.
    The screen ratio is like a VGA screen which is 4x the old screen which means it’s more square like than wide screen…interesting.

  8. Yeah, that battery better live up to the device’s specs. The TOUR battery life was terrible….

  9. I want to see a leaked video of this. Hopefully, this baby is also going to Sprint.

  10. The keyboard like 9000 is a wellcome, but… ¿is the screen so tiny to touch?

  11. Looks nice…will the dakota have the leather back that the 9000 had?

  12. Like someone mentioned b4, this is a sexy phone!!! Can’t wait to play with this new and improved BOLD Touch!!!! Its just looking better and better now a video and I’m more sold then ever. RIM come on please put this out on the market quick!

  13. Can’t wait to replace my Tour with this.

  14. it looks nice and promising, but im not jumping til i see some proof of QNX support.

    • @fubaz,
      RIM has said clearly a QNX OS for smartphone will require dual core CPU. None of the 2011 devices leaked have dual core. I think chances are near zero RIM will change that and make a QNX for any of them.

  15. This is definately my next smartphone seeing that RIM will not be upgrading the Storm 2 to OS 6. I also like the mobile hotspot feature and the proccessor.

  16. I am happy for all Bold users… this is an amazing phone… can’t wait to see the others… it seems as if all rumors and leaks are accurate… unlike Apples ”rumored ipad” at its launch… i say no more.. i don’t want Steve Jobs at my door :D

  17. Had to delete that last comment sorry guys but try to keep it clean ;)

  18. In my opinion, I really like the looks of 9780 and 9700 better. Not only that, but the glowing edges on the trackpad is ugly. I am upgrading to the bold 9700.

  19. It was a post that was removed. It was a little over the top.

  20. still holding out but this is a good step towards QNX on the handsets
