Matthew Miller describes the new BlackBerry Bold:

"The upcoming BlackBerry Bold smartphone (aka 9000 series) will support tri-band HSDPA networks and include integrated GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth radios. This baby will run with a speedy 624MHz processor and include 128MB Flash and 1GB on-board storage capacity, along with a microSD slot. The display is 480×320 high resolution and is not a touch display as some rumors stated. A major weakness with BlackBerry devices has been the web browser, but the press release states that this new browswer will support full desktop-style HTML and also allow streaming via RTSP - real-time streaming protocol."

RIM gave no official release date or pricing was given, other than to say it will be coming out this summer.
