Rumor: RIM Working on BlackBerry Orlando – Curve Styling with Touch

BlackBerry Orlando Curve Touch

I am not sure what to make of this latest rumor. Lucas over at N4BB is reporting that he has been tipped off to RIM working on a new device called the BlackBerry Orlando. The device is supposed to take the BlackBerry Curve form factor and add a touchscreen. It seems like RIM would really be stretching themselves thin since we already have rumors of two other Curve models coming out but that has not stopped RIM in the past. This device was not seen on any previous roadmaps but the Curve was a huge success for RIM so I can see them trying to milk it with more features in the classic model.

Keep in mind you should take all of these rumors with a grain of salt but what do you think? Does RIM need a Curve Touch style device to match up with the Bold Touch?

  1. Makes complete sense. Bold Touch with 9000 style keyboard and higher specs. Curve Touch with curve style keyboard and medium specs, Storm 3, Torch 2. This for me a a good 2011 line-up. Done!

  2. That’d be a SMALL touch screen.

  3. It looks to have a taller screen like the Dakota does…

  4. I’d definitely have to see it in action before thinking about buying it. I’m still quite happy with my current bold.

  5. As a fan of the Curve keyboard I would say this model should do well – unless the screen size becomes a problem for touch screen use.

  6. will be a small touch screen

  7. as a long time former curve user I don’t see this being a good phone
