There were many upcoming devices that RIM didn’t mention at the recent BlackBerry World 2011. One of them was the follow up to the Torch and we’ve seen this touchscreen/QWERTY slider leak online in pictures and videos. A new video has surfaced that gives a solid 7-minute rundown of the Torch 2. The overall design looks incredibly similar (same display and keyboard) but the guts of the device is dramatically different: 1.2 GHz processor, WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, 5 megapixel camera and a 1,300 MAh battery… plus this will run the new BlackBerry 7 OS. No official work on when this will be released but it’s probably one of the “next generation of smartphones” that RIM has coming.
