Just a few hours ago, we’ve reported that BlackBerry Bold 9900 might not release until September, 2011. But Sprint might be readying the BlackBerry Bold 9930 handset to release in August. Folks over CrackBerry blog have managed to get a couple of screenshots of a leaked memo, which is suggesting that the CDMA version of the Bold 9900, the BlackBerry Bold 9930 will be landing on the Sprint network on August 21st. If the rumors spreading about the Blackberry Bold 9900 handset’s September launch become true, it could also affect the Sprint branded Blackberry Bold 9930 handset’s August launch.
BlackBerry Bold 9930 comes with new BlackBerry OS 7, and features a 2.8-inch “Liquid Graphics” VGA screen with 640 x 480 pixels resolution, powered by 1.2GHz Snapdragon application processor inside, embedded with NFC chip for mobile payments, and brings a magnetic compass to support augmented reality apps, equipped with a 5-megapixel flash-equipped camera,which is capable of 720p HD video recording capability, 768MB RAM, and 8GB of internal storage and scope for 32GB memory expansion.
Along with the BlackBerry Bold 9930, Sprint is also gearing up to launch the unannounced BlackBerry Torch 9850, codenamed ‘Monaco’. This handset has been leaking online for a couple of months on the name of Volt, Monaco, Monza, and Torch. This handset will be having a 3.7-inch touchscreen display with 800 x 480 pixels, 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 768MB of RAM.
The leaked memo also revealed a mysterious handset called LG Optimus Slider, which is having the codename Gelato Q. A recently leaked T-Mobile 2011 Lineup also revealed the LG Gelato Optimus II. This handset might be releasing as the LG Optimus 2X QWERTY-slider. The details are still scarce about this handset. We will keep digging for more information of this handset and will keep you posted if we get some valid info.
The leaked memo doesn’t reveal the launching dates of BlackBerry Bold Torch 9850, and LG Optimus Slider/ Gelato handsets.
