BlackBerry Storm 3: Specs and release – QNX?

In the last couple of days we’ve brought you news of several upcoming BlackBerry phones from RIM, the BlackBerry Torch 2, the BlackBerry Curve and the BlackBerry Dakota but now more news arrives, this time about the BlackBerry Storm 3.

This is one of the higher-end phones that will be coming out, with a release date scheduled for September and there may be 2 or 3 global versions, with other possible names being the Monaco and Monza, according to an article by Jonathan S. Geller over on BGR.

Featuring the highest-ever BlackBerry smartphone display resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, with an optical trackpad, other specs include a 1.2GHz processor, quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, tri-band UMTS/HSPA and a 5-megapixel camera. According to BGR there’s also 512MB of RAM a microSD slot, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR and 3G Mobile hotspot and it all runs on BlackBerry OS 6.1.

However an article by Carly Page over on DialToSave, sourced from KnowYourMobile reports that this could be the first RIM smartphone to run on the new QNX OS, which the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is also using.

It’s a bit of a mystery then but it will be interesting to see if QNX does turn up on the BlackBerry Storm 3 as Mike Lazarides, RIM CEO did hint recently of upcoming phones using the OS. What do you think of the BlackBerry Storm 3 and how likely do you think it is that it will run on the new QNX OS? Why not send us your comments to let us know your thoughts on this.

    i think it would be huge for RIM to place the QNX OS into the Storm 3 but then the phone would need a dual core processor and 1GB of ram in order to function like the playbook (multitasking, intense graphics, gaming, etc).
