BlackBerry CDMA roadmap leaked

blackberry-roadmap-2011-1

The guys over at crackberry.com have got hold of a real beauty. Details of RIMs CDMA roadmap which not only seems to confirm the device leaks we saw last week but also an extra addition – the BlackBerry Curve Touch. Now we clearly don’t have CDMA here in the UK but i would be confident in saying that chances are a GSM version will be made for most if not all of the devices in the leaked roadmap. I know we have not seen a GSM version of the BlackBerry Style but I think that is due to the flip design being much more popular in North America.

There are some device names to clarify and these are below:

  • new BlackBerry Bold Touch: Dakota is the GSM version, while Montana is the CDMA version
  • next gen Curve: Apollo is the GSM version, while Sedona is the CDMA version
  • new Curve Touch: not previously mentioned, Malibu is a new CDMA touchscreen Curve (likely to be a GSM one in the works too of course)

Rather than me pinching all the pictures from crackberry why not head on over there. Kevin has done a great job on this post and if you are a BlackBerry fan you may need a tissue to wipe up the dribble!
