Details on new BlackBerrys and OS 4.3 leaked


WiFiEdgeBGR picked some fresh information from the forums on new BlackBerrys coming out, although it’s largely reiterating what we already know. The Wi-Fied BlackBerry 8820 recently announced in Spain, the GPS BlackBerry 8310 also spotted in the wild, the BlackBerry 8320 rumored previously, and the Pearl 2 have all had some specs leaked alongside information of OS 4.3. Save the 8820, Wi-Fi and GPS will be mutually exclusive on the upcoming devices. The slides for both the 8320 and Pearl 2 claim only a 2 megapixel camera versus previous reports of a 3.2 megapixels or higher. I’d like to hold out for the latter, but only a release will tell us the final word. The Pearl 2 will have Wi-Fi and a CDMA version available.

As for the OS 4.3 upgrade due out this Fall, they’re integrating real-time streaming multimedia for Wi-Fi enabled BlackBerrys. 4.3 will also be the last upgrade for 87XX series devices, and nothing older will be getting any love.

Thanks to The Outsider for giving us the scoop!
