BB Roadmap
A new BB Roadmap over at has some interesting highlights:

BIS 4.0 Mar-May 2011
BIS 4.1 Jul - Sep 2011
BB OS7 - Oct - Dec 2011

Also a bunch of apps are either out or on the way.

Don't go asking what is in it or anything like that. Your guess is as good as anyone's right now. Rumor only at this point.

Re: BB Roadmap
Hopefully BIS 4.0 brings Playbook stand alone email support (ie: have the same email accounts going to your playbook as well as your blackberry, WITHOUT BB tethering)

More information on the new devices coming out:

Part of RIM's upcoming 2011 BlackBerry lineup we leaked in January contained the company's latest evolution of a full touchscreen device, the BlackBerry Monaco / Monza. Both names are codenames that signify different carriers the phone will land on, we're told; Verizon Wireless will get the Monaco while the BlackBerry Monza is the global GSM version. In any case, the BlackBerry Storm is a thing of the past and RIM finally realizes that its SurePress innovation wasn't innovative at all. In fact, it was probably one of the biggest complaints users had with the original BlackBerry Storm.

The new device, most likely not a member of the Storm family; it may launch as the BlackBerry Touch, though that's not confirmed; is a thinner, faster and sexier BlackBerry handset. It will run BlackBerry OS 6.1 and as part of the new OS, users will need a BlackBerry ID to login to the system. This is something we've been throwing around in our heads for a while; the concept is that you have a BlackBerry ID as opposed to a PIN, which might help facilitate a cloud-type service for backing up data and restoring it, sharing contact information, switching devices, and so on; all tied to your BlackBerry ID. In any case, OS 6.1 looks to be pretty similar to OS 6.0, but we'll have to see if RIM has any surprises left for us in the three to four months before the BlackBerry Bold Touch is released.

Finally, we're also hearing that RIM will make all of the devices we exclusively leaked official at BlackBerry World in May; the BlackBerry Bold Touch, BlackBerry Curve Touch, BlackBerry Torch 2 and BlackBerry Touch (BlackBerry Monaco / Monza). Looks like it's shaping up to be quite a show!

Re: BB Roadmap
I'm excited for the Blackbery Touch/Monaco! I'm still with my old Storm 1 and if I could have only three things for the monaco, it would be

1) at least 512mb memory
2) faster browser
3) a bit higher resolution

(I know this isn't asking much these days, the storm has kept my standards low :) )
