And as if the revealing of the 2011 series of BlackBerry phones – the Torch 2, the Dakota and the Apollo Curve weren’t enough, now the curtain from the BlackBerry Storm 3 has been lifted as well.

It surely looks like RIM is trying very hard not to lose its customers as well as attract new ones. If the information that has been sent to BGR could be trusted, the new BlackBerry Storm 3 looks like a pretty powerful device.

The Storm 3 will feature a 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen with the highest resolution for a BlackBerry phone ever – 800x480 pixels. Still unknown is whether the Storm 3 will feature the SurePress display or not. From the leaked photos of the device it seems that it will feature the trackpad that RIM’s customers have been used to.

Also impressive are the 1.2Ghz processor and 512MB of RAM that should give plenty of power to the device. On board is a 5MP camera capable of 720p video recording, 8GB storage, Wireless N connectivity and Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR.

The usual accelerometer, magnetometer, microSD card slot and proximity sensor are present as well. Juice will be provided by a 1230mAh battery. OpenGL ES 2.0 suggests the Storm 3 should have a more advanced GPU on board, but we’ll wait for an official word from RIM on that.

The device will run the new BlackBerry OS 6.1, which has the 3G mobile hotspot feature. Reportedly, the device is aimed to launch in September this year with a couple of variations around the world.

Everybody seems to have an extreme lack of knowledge in reference to mobile networks and what the new terms mean. 4g is just a letter and a number, and holds NO bearing whatsoever on speed... 3G (or technically 3G+) has been 4G the whole time, simpl...
