Good news for BlackBerry fans today, as a double helping of RIM leaks have made their way online. First up, The Verge has gotten hold of some press renders of the BlackBerry Curve 9320 and, well, it looks quite a bit like one would expect a Curve to look. There's no mention of spec details with this latest leak, but a roadmap that surfaced back in January alleged that the 9320 could include features like a 2.44-inch 320x240 screen, 3.2-megapixel camera, 512MB RAM and ROM and HSPA support.
A separate report from N4BB claims to have information concerning the debut of the first BlackBerry 10 handset. According to a source speaking to the site, RIM is currently planning to announce its first BB10 handset in August. The phone, which is said to be full-touch, is slated to launch sometime in the first half of October. N4BB goes on to say that the first BlackBerry 10 phone with a hardware QWERTY keyboard is planned for Q1 2013.
So far RIM has only said that the first BlackBerry 10 device is due in the later half of 2012, but the aforementioned leaked roadmap claimed that the handset could arrive in late September or early October, lining up with this latest tidbit of info. As for exactly what the first BB10 handset will be, RIM's not talking. However, it's been suggested that the full-touch BlackBerry London could be RIM's inaugural BlackBerry 10 smartphone. Here's to hoping that RIM gets in the mood to spill more details on BlackBerry 10 and its first BB10 device soon.
