Received an email really early this morning with some photos. Usually around that time of day, we’re expecting a different breed of photos, but nevertheless, this is exciting, folks. Attached to the email were some shots of a new BlackBerry device with a watermark that proves they’re legit. Read on and prepare yourself for sheer beauty…

…from Kawasaki?!

Compared to other devices, the Kawasaki-edition BlackBerry 8800k is average sized. It sneaks in between the sizes of both the BlackBerry 8700 and 8100, and does so with an outer casing that is composed of what must be high-quality plastic. You know, the kind they use on Joan Rivers. And get this – who needs those fandy-dandy chargers when one of these beasts needs only one 9V battery?

    My bet is that once Boy Genius confirms the functionality, you’ll get all the PTT/walkie-talkie functionality w/o purchasing a separate data plan. Just won’t have that nationwide coverage that comes with iDEN.

    The peel-off screen…this phone isn’t real. Anyone else feel the same? I’m not sure what the whole deal is behind the peel-off screen.

    Unless I’m missing something, but it looks to me, very clearly so, that this is just a prototype, like what they show in the stores.
