BlackBerry Curve 9320 and 9220 outed in RIM roadmap leak? Plus, white Bold 9790 incoming

The BlackBerry Curve 9320 and the Curve 9220 – these apparently are the names of RIM’s ‘two new BlackBerry Curves’ that we heard would be coming this year. BGR seems to have got some insider info on these new devices, both of which sport full Qwerty keypads, and a list of basic spec.

Sadly both of these phones aren’t looking a patch on the current Curve line-up. Boasting 3.2 and 2-megapixel cameras respectively, the screens for these Curve have some basic-sounding 320×240 (QVGA) resolution screens and no NFC – no BlackBerry Tag fun for these guys by the sounds of it.

Alongside these phones is what looks like a pretty comprehensive roadmap. Rounding out what we heard last week, it’s looking like the new 7-inch 3G+ PlayBook will come with a faster 1.5GHz CPU as well as an NFC chip. Swapping documents between PlayBooks and 7.1-updated phones is but one of the features we’re sure RIM would be baking into this bad boy.

As well as this, white editions of the BlackBerry Bold 9790 and the Curve 9380 look set to melt hearts in Q2 of this year. Given that we’ve already seen a white edition of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 arrive on Vodafone, we’re not too shocked to hear that other white BlackBerry variants are incoming.

Naturally, this info ought to be garnished with a healthy dash of salt – RIM’s official line on this is a resolute ‘no comment’ – though the roadmap below does look pretty authentic. For a full set of slides and specs, hit up the source link at the bottom.
