Boy Genius unearths the BlackBerry 9110 (Codename: Seawolf)


BlackBerry 9110 SeawolfYear after year, Boy Genius keeps the often boring summertime news cycle interesting by breaking new BlackBerry devices. The trend continues, this time with an .xml file revealing the BlackBerry 9110, which has essentially the coolest development codename ever: Seawolf. Pertinent features? It’s in the 9100 series family, which means a ‘reduced’ SureType keypad, and possibly flip-phone styling, but with GPS support.

Boy Genius seems to think the device is headed to AT&T. We wait with baited breath.

RIM to release clamshell flip phone codenamed Kickstart?


The BlackBerry KickstartThe Boy Genius Report has the first pictures of a new clamshell form factor BlackBerry, codename Kickstart. Up until now we had heard only the vaguest allusions to a clamshell phone from RIM, but the BGR’s picture gallery looks pretty legit. The phone uses a SureType keypad and sports both an internal and external LCD, as well as a trackball and camera, although camera specs weren’t mentioned. BGR says RIM will be releasing it before the end of the year. They also say they’ve known about it for a while, but were waiting on proof before they went public with the info. It certainly looks like they found it.
