Pics and specs of the long-awaited Blackberry Dakota leaked
posted by Alex I. / Jan 13, 2011, 9:46 AM
The BlackBerry Dakota is set to come with a 2.8-inch screen and a magnificent resolution for its size - 480 x 640. It is a quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE handset, and also supports a tri-band UMTS. This device also sports a 5MP camera, 768MB of RAM and a 4GB build-in memory. It is set to launch with BlackBerry OS 6.1, NFC support and is expected to be a 3G mobile hotspot.
No doubt, this is a great read for all BB fanatics, but do you think this phone stands a chance in a harsh smartphone world where Android is becoming better all the time, iOS is successfully holding its ground, and WP7 and webOS are promising much?
Why would someone want a touch screen AND the first row of option keys? I knew touch screens would eventually come to BB but I assumed they would come without the navigation buttons, and have the touch screen be larger because of that. This phone looks like it would just be a nuisance. I'd be using the navigation buttons and accidentally swipe the screen.

Yeah - a refreshed Bold. BB/RIM need to step up their game a bit. At CES 2011, they were showing the PlayBook, which was arguably one of the more advanced tablets (when other manufacturers were basically showing proof-of-concept boxes). Now this? Yawn.

The specs and design aren't bad at all but I wish they'd really added a few more features like: a front facing cam, more internal memory about 8gb, HDMI out and DLNA. I do like it has the most RAM of all the other Blackberrys leaked, which means its gonna run smoother than the others.

13. LOL unregistered
This is a business phone, not a game-boy for the limp-wristed overgrown rugrat panty wastes who play all day and have no self-worth other than to show off their fanboi iphones and genuflect to Jobs and think that their critical posts here are worth any more than the keyclicks spent plagiarizing and spellchecking

I think this may be the perfect blackberry! I'm not sure what all the complaints are about. The candybar style is a classic, it's proven to work. That's why most android and iphones have the same style. It has a upgraded camera with flash, a faster processor and should come equiped with HD video recording. It has a larger screen that will make for a better browsing experience. Keep in mind, BB still has the best email client industry wide. It's the perfect business phone! I've been waiting for a candybar style phone that's touchscreen from BB for a while.
