Is this the BlackBerry Storm 3?

storm3BGR have had a goldmine of a scoop lately, leaking the Curve, Bold and Torch models of RIM’s lineup. They’ve rounded it off with images and specs of a third successor to the Storm. The first two iterations brought a quirky, clicky touchscreen which didn’t really take off as much as RIM would have hoped; maybe a name rebranding will help wash away the poor reception of the Storm? Codenamed the Monaco or Monza , it has the same 1.2GHz processor as the leaked Torch 2, and a nice 3.7″ touchscreen.

There’s no information as of yet whether that SurePress screen will stay, but the other specifications are pretty tasty – click through to see them.
