BlackBerry Monza 9860 poses for the camera
The full touch screen device from RIM is said to be packing a 1.2GHz processor under the hood. It looks to be a successor to the two BlackBerry Storm devices that occupied space in Verizon’s lineup for a while, but this capacitive display will not have the clicking screen technology known as SurePress.
If you look closely at the images you will see that it says AT&T on the top of the display. This phone is also said to be heading to T-Mobile sometime very soon. One of the pictures shows the Monza next to an Apple iPhone 4. They appear to be very similar in size although the Monza looks to have
Hopefully we know more about this device soon as RIM continues to play catch-up with the rest of the smartphone field of competitors. Check out all the photos and tell us what you think in the comments below.

i'm sorry Blackberry fans but this is just ugly. RIM needs to start using Capacitive buttons.

if they do... then apple will not be happy
because it would be too similar and apple will fire suing papers =(

Waa?? This makes no sense at all. Apple doesn't use capacitive buttons.

I like it but it's only like ten thousand years too late.

Might buy it if it had a front camera for video calling. But it doesn't.

i love how they think they are so clever by finding the little at&t logo at the top of the screen above the time when if you look at the big at&t logo in the middle of the screen lmao you wont have to strain so hard lol!!

Can someone explain to me why a touchscreen phone needs a trackpad? That's like putting a urinal in the ladies bathroom, how much will it get used?
15. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
probably because RIM still can't imagine an OS completely controlled by a touch screen.

I've used the phone and it feels like a quality device. It has a great capacitive touch screen and is very responsive. The trackpad comment makes sense, but it's most probably just there to give their phones a uniform look and feel and also to help people "make the jump" from other BlackBerry handsets.
It would definitely be my personal choice of the new Blackberry handsets.

Because navigating to a typo with a trackball or trackpad is a whole lot easier than touching the typo exactly on a small touchscreen

It looks kind of old because the hardware was designed over a year ago, because it takes RIM that long to push anything out. I like it, but an earlier comment was very correct - the iphone 5, evo 3d, galaxy II, etc. are so much better and many are AVAILABLE NOW. If only they could've push this and the others out by June. Even the iphone 5 would look old and few would buy it if Apple delayed it until 2015...
