Leaked BlackBerry Storm 3 specs BBLeaks has put together a list of leaked specs for the still unconfirmed BlackBerry Storm 3.
If accurate, the device will be RIM's most powerful smartphone to date.

For now, the specs are still just rumored, and the picture is of a prototype of the device:

Display: 3.7-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
Memory: 8 or 16 GB storage w/ optional expandable to 32GB, 512 MB or 1GB RAM, 1 GB ROM
Camera: 5MP or 8 MP, fixed focus, dual-LED flash
Optical trackpad
MP3: MP3/WAV/eAAC+/WMA player, MP4/H.264/H.263/WMV player
Bluetooth: Yes, v3.0 with A2DP
3G: HSDPA, 10.2 Mbps; HSUPA, 2 Mbps
Addons: Wi-Fi, USB, GPS, OS, Video
Weight: Standard battery, Li-Ion 1200 mAh (BL-4D)
Talktime: Up to 432 h (2G) / Up to 480 h (3G)
Standby: Up to 9 h (2G) / Up to 5 h (3G)


The site speculates that RIM is delaying release of the device until it can put a final version of its new QNX operating system on it.

There is also a chance the Storm 3 may be the first BlackBerry with 4G support.

There isn't any rumored specs about a processor so how could it be the most powerful and I think they should add support for 4G?

+1
...here is the quote that implies good performance,

"Memory: 8 or 16 GB storage w/ optional expandable to 32GB, 512 MB or 1GB RAM, 1 GB ROM"

Seems like a bad translation, but I think they are saying:
-choice of 8gb for 16gb internal memory
-choice of 512mb or 1GB of ram
-1GB system ROM area
-microsd card slot

...based on these, it probably will be the most powerful phone they ever made...it might even have a 800mhz processor in it.

I'm more curious about the 3 bottled waters in the picture. Danone Aqua? And what are those green rubbery looking things?

I think the green things are tree leaves...not sure why they would be on the table, but I am not sure why a man would wear a thumb ring either.

Hey, I missed that...but why use standby? Get an unlimited plan and stay in call all the time; the battery will last 20 days! Rim is really stepping up their game!
