BlackBerry 9000 specs leaked

9000Oh, Boy Genius. What would we do without you? The 9100 will purportedly be carrying a 480 x 320 screen, a 624MHz processor, 1GB of on-board memory, GPS, Wi-Fi, 2 megapixel camera and be running on sweet, sweet 3G HSDPA. Hawt? Yes. You guys who have been clamouring for an all-in-one device? This sounds like it.

At least OS 4.3 will be on there (if not some mysterious new next-gen software), which means video recording and all the other features we’re seeing on recent BlackBerrys will be on the 9100. As for the keypad, you’ve got to wonder where it’s going to go, what with the screen being on par with the iPhone’s resolution. Yeah, there’s a lot of noise about a touchscreen device, but unless RIM has the cajones to say they can do the touchscreen keypad better than Apple, I think a slider format is a much more likely move. If they’re feeling kinky, maybe that roll-out keypad will see the light of day. Camerawise, there’s no upgrade planned, maybe since they stepped down from the Pearl 2′s initial 3.2 megapixels and didn’t want to disappoint again, but there’s still plenty of time for things to change. As for a release date, BG is sticking to his early ’08 forecast, but as ever, that remains in the wonderful and exciting Land of Rumors.

    Didn’t RIM patent a “roll away” keyboard a while back. I would suspect that this device would have a tactile keyboard based on the issues some people have with the iPhone.

    Calling bunk…No real internal pics…No real spec sheets..it’s vapour ware until then…while I do believe we will see WiFi and GPS together, you won’t see a touchscreen on a BB for a while yet.
