And this time, it isn’t by our hands (via the hands of Boy Genius). Russ over at BBHub reports on a little tidbit that was sent his way this morning regarding the BlackBerry 8800.
In our interview with Boy Genius yesterday, we noted that production of the 8800 is double of what the Pearl saw with it’s initial release, and made a little side note of the fact that the device lets you know when your battery cover is off with a message showing on your devices screen. Now then, onto what was revealed earlier today.
We are already aware that there are two 8800 models slated for release – one with a camera, one without. According to both our interview and BBHub’s report, the latter device should see the light of day by mid-late January. The former, a CameraBerry, should be hitting shelves around mid-end of April 2007. Both will be equipped with WiFi. And there were just a couple more little notes about the 8800 on BBHub.
“When compared side by side to an 8700 model, it is approximately 2/3 the width of an 8700 and approx 1/4+/- inches longer.
The T-Mobile version will be black (as compared to the Pearl). This is verified for the 8800 without a camera…No final concrete design on the camera version as of yet, but 80% chance it will look exactly the same”
Thanks to Russ and the anonymous tipster.
