I think its the Gemini which is the "in between a curve and bold" or was that tour....don't remember.
Onyx has never been linked as being the bold + touchscreen, it seems to be more a 3g curve, but with its styling and features it seems like it will be aimed at both current 8900 and bold users when it comes out.

The earliest leaked rumors of a bold with a touchscreen labelled it as the magnum, but there has been nothing about that in ages, so it seems likely that Rim have either scrapped that name or changed the codename for that device to try and throw the blogs off the scent.

Gemini seems to be the low cost update for the aging, but very successful original curves.
