RIM announced three new BlackBerry smartphones this morning, all running its new BlackBerry 7 operating system.On paper, the new phones don’t offer anything new you can’t get with the iPhone or many of the popular Android devices out there. And after the BlackBerry Torch bombed last year, we’re a little surprised RIM is trying again with two new Torch models.
BlackBerry 7 OS isn’t much of an upgrade from the current version running on your BlackBerry phone right now. In fact, the OS was supposed to be a minor update to version 6, until RIM decided to rebrand it BlackBerry 7 a few months ago.
We’re still waiting for RIM to bring its QNX OS (the same one running on the PlayBook) to its smartphones, but that won’t happen until next year.
In the meantime, we’ve pulled together the top specs on each of RIM’s new BlackBerrys. They’ll be available later this month.
