Blackberry roadmap leaked

Blackberry has been facing increasing competition from all ends. Thanks to many corporate customers falling for the allure and glamour of the competition such as Motorola’s Android offerings, Samsung Galaxy S line and Apple’s iPhone, the Waterloo based company has been struggling to turn around the ship in a market where buttons are so yesterday and everyone wants more stuff to touch.

Thanks to a new direction from the executive seats, the company will be releasing a slew of touch devices between this year and next year to better compete with the competition.

For instance, the company’s PlayBook which was demoed at CES and received much praise for its slick interface and multitasking features will be dropping in the second quarter of 2011 and will feature a 7 inch multi touch screen as well as Blackberry’s Tablet OS platform and a dual core processor as well as storage in the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants along with full 1080p video recording thanks to a 5 megapixel camera on the back and a 3 megapixel camera on the front for video conferencing.

As if that is not enough, the company will follow up on that with the release of the Monaco Touch smartphone which will feature a 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor that will support dual band CDMA and Ev-DO 3G along with support for NFC and magnetometer, accelerometer and proximity sensors. There will be a 5 megapixel camera on the back that will support 720p video shooting and the screen is 3.7 inches with a resolution of 800 x 480 and an aspect ratio of 15:9.

The Blackberry roadmap lists the Sedona, the next generation Curve, for a Q4 2011 release and a Malibu touchscreen phone for Q1 of 2012. Maybe RIM will break protocol and give us more scoops on these devices next month.
