BlackBerry Apollo

Interested in getting a better look at the BlackBerry Apollo that originally appeared way back in January? Of course you are! A new hands-on video showcasing the Apollo has been posted by Vietnamese site Tinh te, giving us a near 8-minute preview of the newest member of the Curve family. The site has also shared some of the Apollo's specs, which include a 480x360 display, 800MHz Marvell Tavor CPU MG-1 processor, 5-megapixel camera, and BlackBerry 7 all in a frame that measures 11 millimeters thick. Other rumored specs for the Apollo include 512MB RAM and NFC capabilities. The full video has been embedded for your viewing pleasure below.

Although the Apollo's specs can't match those found on the new Bold 9900, it looks like a serviceable upgrade to the current Curve on the market. The good news is that, after getting acquainted with the Apollo, Tinh te came away impressed with it, especially when it comes to the device's display and build quality. So, now that you've gotten the opportunity to see the Apollo in action, what do you all think?
