Leaked shots turn out to be new 8XXX model?

8XXXSo that shot from the other day was, in fact, legit. Leaked Vodafone docs show that this new device due out in May will be packing quad-band GSM, HSDPA, GPS, Wi-Fi, a 2.0 megapixel camera, a 624 MHz processor, a 480 x 320 screen (up from the current 320 x 240 standard), and a 1500mAh battery (up from the 8800’s 1400 mAh). As for carrier, the Rogers logo has been spotted on it, so we can expect it in Canada soon, too. The stats match up previous 9000 series info. Based on these specs, the only 8800-series device that might survive is the 8830 for those who happen to hop on CDMA networks - GPS, Wi-Fi and a camera all in one device really does blow everything else out of the water. In fact, if we’re just running on the slideshow, the possibility of this one being an inaugural 9000-series device still seems entirely possible. What do you guys think? The BlackBerry 8900 or the 9000? One way or the other, this thing is sounding pretty sweet.

    May is too far for the new blackberry! We need a new one now! One that has full youtube and a real browser! Someone please help.

    youTUBE is not exactly a staple of the Blackberry user community. Sounds like you want an iPhone?

    I am hoping Bell gets it in. Using 8703. Great sturdy phone and this one looks like a winner.

    I don’t know about all consumers, but I’m definitely a BB user for the substance. After using WM Treo and WM/Palm pdas I’m sold on my 8703 because it works…everytime! I could really care less what color it is. But that’s just my 2 cents.

    All I know is that I am definitely a BlackBerry user for life. It is awesome in so many different fields. I like to have a phone for looks but i definitely buy a phone for performance. It’s a lot of money to buy a phone that looks good but sucks in performance. BlackBerry users are smarter than that. My girlfriend always got mad at me for spending the money on the phone and she buckled and bought one herself and now she can’t get enough. I’m pleased with my 8830!
