BlackBerry Apollo (Curve 2011) gets pre-unveil video demo

BlackBerry Curve 2011 gets large, positive leak

A telling leak from Vietnam's well-known Tinhte has provided a deep, seven-minute video look into the 2011 BlackBerry Curve, sometimes known by its codename Apollo. The design is said to feel "great" in the hand with a much thinner shape and a wider-spaced keyboard. Speed is much improved on the phone, too, with the combination of the known 800MHz Marvell Tavor MG-1 chip and BlackBerry 7's graphics acceleration both leading to smoother performance, even with a much sharper 480x360 screen.

A five-megapixel rear camera is on the phone, although it doesn't currently shoot 720p video like the Bold 9900.

Some complaints still surfaced even knowing the pre-release hardware. The battery is brand new but appears to have a small 1,000mAh capacity. RIM's choice of keyboard and buttons were also characterized as "stiff" compared to the soft buttons on past Curves.

RIM's exact timing for the new Curve isn't known. Early rumors of a May appearance have proven premature. With the only BlackBerry 7 device so far announced being the Bold 9900 and likely due for a release in July or August, the 2011 Curve may not arrive until later on in the year.
