BlackBerry Curve Apollo

So maybe you saw the BlackBerry Dakota leak from earlier today and, while it looks like a nice device, you're not sure about this whole "touchscreen" fad just yet.  It's ok, I don't blame you.  As luck would have it, another BlackBerry has leaked out today, and this one follows the traditional 'Berry formula a bit more closely.  This one is a BlackBerry Curve successor, codenamed Apollo, and sports some lower-end, but still impressive, specs.  The full rundown looks like this:

  • 480x360 display
  • 800MHz processor
  • 5 megapixel camera with flash
  • 512MB RAM
  • 512MB eMMC
  • NFC
  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
  • Tri-band UMTS/HSPA, capable of 7.2Mbps speeds
  • 11mm thickness
  • BlackBerry 6.1

The Apollo certainly doesn't have the high-end specs to make the majority of gadget nerds drool, but it should be able to handle just about anything an average user throws at it without skipping a beat.  The only question is, exactly when is this thing going to arrive?  After all, the Curve 9330 isn't that long in the tooth.  I'm sure we'll be learning more soon, so stay tuned!
