Next-generation BlackBerry handsets revealed

Details of BlackBerry Dakota, Monaco, Appollo and Torch 2

Smartphone website BGR has revealed what it claims are details of the next generation of RIM BlackBerry smartphone handsets. The BlackBerry Dakota is the replacement for the BlackBerry Bold, and BGR is also publishing images of a new Storm - the 'BlackBerry Monaco' - and an updated BlackBerry Curve known as the 'Apollo'. There's also a second generation BlackBerry Torch, imaginatively titled the 'BlackBerry Torch 2'.

The handsets include 800MHz-1.2GHz processors and 5Mp cameras.

If BGR is to be believed, only one Of the new handsets, the Monaco, dispenses with a hardware keyboard. The Dakota has an additional touchscreen keyboard. The new BlackBerries allow users to wirelessly transfer data between handsets, and reports suggest that RIM intends to use the technology to allow users to make payments.
