BlackBerry Touch a.k.a. Monza/Monaco pops up for sale in Dubai; can be yours for $1500
The BlackBerry Touch, or Monza, or whatever its real name may be, has yet to make its debut on the market, but nevertheless, somebody managed to sneak out a pre-sale unit for themselves. However, it seems like they are not keeping it – the said BlackBerry Touch smartphone is now for sale on Dubizzle, which appears to be Dubai's alternative to Craigslist.

The BlackBerry Touch, or Blackberry Storm 3, as it is listed online, can be purchased for 5,500 dirhams, which is roughly about $1500. We hope you would agree that this is a bit too excessive of a price for a smartphone that is not guaranteed to be in full working condition, but we are sure that there are plenty of RIM fans out there willing to drop that much cash just to have the handset before anybody else. What you would get for your money is a device packing a 3.7-inch display, 1.2GHz Qualcomm chipset, 5-megapixel camera, and all of that topped by BlackBerry OS 7.0.
