BlackBerry Curve Touch leaks out

Nilay Patel

The BlackBerry Curve has always been our favorite 'berry because of its solid keyboard and lack of pretension to any functionality beyond great messaging, but it looks like things are about to change fast: you're looking at a leaked image of what CrackBerry says is the Curve Touch, codenamed "Malibu," and it's all touchscreen -- unlike the rumored Apollo, there's no keyboard in sight. We've only got specs on the CDMA version, and they're right in line with what you'd expect for a midrange device due out in late 2011 / early 2012: 800MHz Qualcomm MSM8655 processor, 3.25-inch HVGA screen, 5 megapixel camera with HD video, 1GB storage with microSD expansion and 512MB of RAM, GPS, and NFC. Of course, CrackBerry says those are just "proposed specs," so anything could change, but man -- are we crazy for thinking an all-touch Curve definitely seems to redefine everything about what a BlackBerry is and is not?
