It’s not a big shocker, seeing how Rogers has already let the cat out of the bag, that Research in Motion has officially announced the BlackBerry Curve 3G. The Curve 3G has a 2MP camera, 256MB of memory, a 320×240 display, and ships with OS 5, however, is said to be BlackBerry 6 ready. (Maybe there is still hope for the BlackBerry Storm2)
BGR has specs on the upcoming 3G BlackBerry Curve called the BlackBerry Gemini 9300.
- The screen will be larger than the BlackBerry 8900, and that will also include a higher resolution
- The CPU will also be beefed up. We’re not sure if this means it will include something more powerful than the Bold’s 624MHz processor or not, but we’d like to think so.
- The device is said to be silver (think BlackBerry 8830)
- The keyboard is a little more rounded than the BlackBerry 8900
- The Send/End keys are rounded instead of being flat on the sides
- Styling is not drastically different — it keeps with the 8900/Storm styling
- It of course rocks quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, and tri-band UMTS/HSDPA
- Wi-Fi and GPS was not confirmed, but we’d say there’s about a 99.99% chance
- Camera specs were not confirmed as well, but you can bet you’re looking at 3.2 megapixels or better
There is no official word on when the BlackBerry 9300 will come out, however, BGR doesn’t think it will be before Q4 ’09 if not Q1 next year.
Over the passed week we’ve seen quite a few pictures of the BlackBerry Javelin as well as a BlackBerry Javelin video. Over the weekend jibi found a out a few of the details surronding what we expect to be the replacement for the BlackBerry Curve.
The BlackBerry Javelin model number will be BlackBerry 9300 and the device will sport BlackBerry OS 4.6.1 and not 5.0.0 as previously expected.
