The BlackBerries keep leaking - it’s the Dakota (a.k.a. Bold Touch) and the Monza (GSM version of the Monaco) this time around. What leaked are sheets of each and every spec for both phones – there are no leaked official photos but we have unofficially leaked ones, so that’s OK.

The BlackBerry Monza, also listed as Torch 9860, packs a 1.2GHz CPU, 768MB RAM, 4GB built-in memory and microSD card slot. This is packed in a 120 x 62 x 11.5mm body.

The Monza/Torch features a 3.7” WVGA screen with 253DPI pixel density and a 5MP camera with 720p video recording. It’s a GSM phone (unlike the Verzion-bound Monaco), so you can count on quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and 3G with HSDPA (14.4Mbps)/HSUPA (5.76Mbps). There’s Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+A2DP as well as an A-GPS receiver.

You can check out some spy shots of the BlackBerry Torch (Monza/Monaco) from before.

The BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 (a.k.a. Dakota) is a QWERTY bar with 2.8” VGA capacitive touchscreen (287DPI). Some of the cooler specs we’ve seen are backed by these leaked specs – a 10.5mm thin frame, a 1.2GHz processor with 768MB RAM and 8GB of built-in memory. The camera is a 5MP snapper capable of 720p video capture.

The BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 is a GSM device (there were rumors of it being GSM/CDMA dual-mode) with quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and 14.4Mbps HSDPA/5.76Mbps HSUPA. Wi-Fi a/b/g/n (2.4GHz and 5GHz) is supported too.

Of course, these specs are unofficial and might change before the Monza/Torch and Dakota/Bold Touch launch. The Dakota specs for one say “Update: January 20”, but we’ll keep our fingers crossed that RIM won’t remove any of the cool features.

Here are a few leaked photos of the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 (Dakota).
