New photos of BlackBerry Monza available, different buttons on the front showed
A new photo shows that the BlackBerry 9860 Touch Monza (a.k.a. Monaco), one of the most leaked upcoming phones by RIM, has different buttons on the front than the ones we have already seen thanks to a previous leak.

It's yet unknown whether the handset will launch with the buttons showed in the pic below or with the ones we have seen before this leak.

Rumors claim this phone will be released with a 3.7-inch WVGA display (if true, it will be the biggest screen on a BlackBerry handset), 5MP camera capable of HD 720p video recording and the latest BlackBerry OS 7.0 (the second image kind of proves it), while a mighty 1.2GHz processor is said to power the phone.

What how can something look like an Android device? Android is an OS and not a manufacture of handsets!! Doh!

And the Droid 2 Global has a 3.7 inch screen, full physical QWERTY keyboard, global capability, 1.2 gig processor, probably more memory than this will, and it was released six months ago.

Someone needs to buy RIM a clue, these guys are stuck in 2nd gear. Still with the reluctance to step ahead and remain a force in the business world with the Blackberry name. These lackluster attempts to join mainstream are bad, that shart that is the Torch is one such abortion. Really is this the best RIM can do? In 3 years they have consistently declined in popularity, and now iOS and Android are taking bits and pieces out of their business oriented pie. Good luck RIM, you guys rested on your laurels a bit too much...Wish you guys the best as I haven't had any luck with 3 BB phones, worked great for a year then started crashing and all sorts of mayhem.

Sigh ... wishful thinking I know, but I will give this guy a look when it comes out. The security that goes along with Blackberry is still it's largest advantage, and I am willing to see how this touch offering operates. MorePhonesThenNeeded may not have had any luck with them, but both my Wife and I have been pleased with their quality. Good luck RIM is right.....

Blackberries are generally pretty stable, though not without their share of issues. I guess they don't need to have the most amazing specs, but for Christ's sake, they need more wide appeal form factors. Their traditional keyboards and screens are just too small. I'm also waiting to see if 7 finally makes their interface user friendly.

i like blackberries... only os that doesn't depend on touch screens as i prefer to have a physical keys. haveing a a touch screen is nice, but my personal preference is to navigate using navigation keys. I have an ipad for the fun stuff, school, and for work too as i use it as an ereader.. no more printing stuff. but blackberries are the best choice still as a phone for communication. iphone - too much apple proprietary stuff, and no form factor choices. android - i dont like the cloud only option and lack of form factors (even the droid pro doesnt cut it as its touch screen to navigate, no naviagion keys.) windows 7 - same problem with android. if these other smart phone os's made a phone with the blackberry form factor, navigation using buttons but touch screen as an extra plus, and allowed for native and local sync with your desktop with the option to cloud, the i'd look into it seriously. i guess i pick blackberry cuz its the only os that fits my preferences. i know its not the most innovative OS anymore but it works for me. I'd say its better to get what works best for you, rather then get what's the best on paper.

After purchasing the PB tab and absolutely loving it, this might be my first BB phone!! I think BB have finally realised they've got to step it up and try to win some market share back by producing some top teir products - or next thing they know, they'll be bought out by Microsoft.... The Playbook is all class IMO, and I just hope their phone division takes note of it and steps up to the plate.
