Rumored Specs on new BlackBerry ‘Electron’

Comments

Blackberry ElectronAccording to Slashphone.com, the specifications for the new Blackberry ‘Electron’ are:

Launch: Q405
Display: 240×160, 65k colors
BlueTooth: Yes
Speaker: Yes
Messaging: Instant Messaging and Blackberry push-email.
Network: EDGE / Quadband

The most interesting tidbit is EDGE which stands for Enhanced Data rates for Global Evolution is based on Global System for Mobile Communications which is about 10 times faster than GPRS. Although still very much in its infancy in the United States (even Europe) we can’t help to think that new handhelds built for the mobile professional will spur the nation-wide deployment of EDGE. The new ‘Electron’ is also slated to have a speaker much like the 7100 and 75xx series. It also seems like this new device will be the first to have Instant Messaging built-in.

    Very cool, but one point of clarification:

    >> first to have Instant Messaging built-in.

    The 7100t offers IM.
