I know quite a few people who love to have a touch-screen phone that has a keypad as well, and they are still not fond of slide form factor. For all those who need such a phone, BlackBerry Dakota has been a best kept secret. I actually love slide phones, especially BlackBerry Torch, but Dakota is still tempting. BlackBerry Dakota got leaked and the rumor spread last week and the rumored specs are really mouth watering.
Here is the list of features and specs known so far:
- Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
- Tri-band UMTS
- 5 megapixel camera with HD video recording, flash, and image stabilization
- 4GB of built in storage, 768MB of RAM
- 2.8-inch VGA 640 x 480 capacitive screen
- WiFi b,g,n on 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies
- 3G mobile hotspot!
- MicroUSB port
- Proximity sensor
- 10.5mm thin
- Launches with BlackBerry OS 6.1
The handset is still rumored and not officially announced yet. Will give you guys an update once the handset is officially available.
