BGR dropped the exclusive on RIM’s new Dakota device. The form factor is familiar to all, but with a few additions. Here are the list of official features.
- Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
- Tri-band UMTS
- 5 megapixel camera with HD video recording, flash, and image stabilization
- 4GB of built in storage, 768MB of RAM
- 2.8-inch VGA 640×480 capacitive screen
- WiFi b,g,n on 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies
- 3G mobile hotspot!
- MicroUSB port
- Proximity sensor
- 10.5mm thin
- Launches with BlackBerry OS 6.1
On paper it looks like a winner, the form factor Blackberry fans know and love. Add a touch screen to the mix and it all gets really interesting, right? WRONG!
I have no idea what this device is about, and I get the strangest feeling neither does RIM. But hey, lets just wait until it hits the market and see how it does.
wait- NFC – they’ll have NFC before WP7? I’m embarrassed in advance…
The iPhone 5 is rumored to have NFC in July, so maybe WP can have sloppy seconds?
