BlackBerry Touch Monza 9860 Leaked Images and Features

The latest touch screen entrant that will soon hit the market from Research In Motion (RIM) is the BlackBerry Touch Monaco/Monza 9860. It will feature the latest version of the BBOS v6.1 and will require a BlackBerry ID instead of the BlackBerry PIN to login into the system.

The latest touch screen smart phone from RIM is expected to be launched without the Sure Press technology which featured in the first touch screen smart phones from RIM – BlackBerry Storm which wasn’t very user friendly. It seems to have done away with that technology and perhaps it will be part of a new family of BlackBerry phones, doing away with the Storm range of BlackBerry touch smartphones. The new login system on the phone actually helps with speedier backups and device restorations.

The phone will be known as the Monza on the global GSM network and will be launched as Monaco on Verizon USA mobile network.

The phone is expected to be a quick performer running the efficient BBOS 6.1 and a powerful 1.2GHz processor.
