So you’ve heard all about the BlackBerry Dakota and while it’s a nice phone, it’s not quite what you’ve been hoping for. You see, you quite liked the BlackBerry Torch slider that RIM just recently released; you just thought it fell short in the specs department.

Well, perhaps this tidbit from BGR will keep you on the Torch-wagon for a little longer. Along with its exclusive details on the BlackBerry Dakota, Boy Genius Report got some exclusive information about the upcoming Torch 2. 

Packing a beefier 1.2 GHz CPU, the Torch 2 will also boast a higher screen resolution than the original Torch, going from 480x360 to 640x480. Check the full specs below for an idea of how the Torch 2 is shaping up. According to BGR, we can expect the Torch 2 to be available in Q3 of this year.

Oh, and if you’re thinking all of this sounds a little familiar, you’d be right. RIM released the BlackBerry Storm, which lacked WiFi and disappointed users, in 2008. A year later, the BlackBerry Storm 2 was launched and it brought with it features users had been demanding since the launch of the original Storm.
