BlackBerry's Storm Line Looks Far From Dead With Storm 3 Leak

While the pictures aren't as good as yesterday's BlackBerry Dakota leak, BGR has published the purported specs of the Storm 3, supposedly due out in September. Like the Torch and the Dakota, the specs are heeeaaaps better.

We're talking about a 3.7-inch display with 800x480 resolution (which will be the highest for a BlackBerry phone ever), along with a 1.2GHz processor to match the rumoured Torch 2 speed and a 5MP camera that shoots video at 720p. Supposedly it'll have 8GB of storage, plus 512MB of RAM and will be able to hotspot like the other two rumoured handsets.

The Storm line has stumbled a few times, with talk that RIM might even kill the whole series off, but it looks set to be back on track with this far more powerful third model. Anyone planning on getting one off the back of these leaks specs and pics? [BGR]
