We have said it before, but the leaks continue. Now it appears that RIM’s entire 2011 CDMA Blackberry (thus no Torch2 or Apollo as those are GSM) roadmap has been leaked and it has some interesting things in it. As always, these are just plans and thing can always change. There has been a lot of info leaked on RIM’s plans for the Blackberry already this year with several devices already revealed through other leaks. This one is really impressive as it is filled with internal slides that basically tell you everything you want to know about each of these devices, including the Playbook.
Some of the things you have already seen, but we hadn’t even seen the Curve Touch, doesn’t even sound like it goes together does it. We also got some more info on the BlackBerry 6.1 OS update. It looks as if the Blackberry 6.1 update will create a faster user experience via “liquid graphics”, a faster web browser experience (thanks to hardware acceleration, increased homescreen customization options and even voice-activated universal search.
