RIM is on the radar again. No we’re not talking about them giving BlackBerry Messenger access to the Indian Government. This time, it's the details of their latest smartphone, the BlackBerry Dakota that is doing the rounds.

That's what the Dakota looks like…

Guys at BoyGeniusReport have got their hands on the phone and speak highly about it. The smartphone will feature NFC support and can be used as a 3G hotspot. It also has a touchscreen along with it’s QWERTY keypad and is styled like the Bold. The list below gives a whole view of its features:

  • 2.8-inch VGA 640 x 480 Capacitive touchscreen
  • Wi-Fi b, g, n on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies
  • Bluetooth
  • 5 megapixel camera with HD video recording, flash and image stabilization
  • 4 GB of built-in storage, 768 MB RAM

The phone will launch with BlackBerry OS 6.1 and have other features like a Magnetometer, Accelerometer and a Proximity Sensor.

There hasn’t been a word on the processor but we can leave that for later. Currently, these specs look good and we’re only waiting for the smartphone to release officially. There are chances that it might do so at the MWC in February.
