New BlackBerry Curve dubbed Apollo: Specs release

Sometimes it doesn’t rain but it pours and only moments ago we gave you news and specs on the upcoming BlackBerry Dakota, as yet no date or price available.

Now we hear news of the new BlackBerry Curve, dubbed Apollo, which we think many of you will be interested in. This next-generation phone will be competitively priced according to Jonathan S. Geller over on BGR and appears to have a decent set of specs.

These include a 5-megapixel camera, WiFi, GPS and 512MB of RAM. There’s also an HGVA display (480 x 360) and it will run BlackBerry OS 6.1. Add to that, quad-band GSM/GPRS/EGE along with tri-band HSPA 7.2 Mbps radio and this new mid-end BlackBerry phone looks pretty good. Similarly to the Dakota there are no price details or release date yet available

An article over on BerryReview is impressed by the new Curve’s 800MHz CPU but notes that the battery is not as good as it could be (1050mAH). What are your thoughts on the next-generation Curve? Why not send us your comments to let us know.
