BlackBerry Magnum, Onyx, Gemini and Pearl 3G coming to AT&T
It looks like BlackBerry users are in for a nice surprise, especially those on AT&T. Some documents have been leaked, suggesting that four handsets are to be released by the carrier. Unfortunately, there is no information on the exact dates, but we guess (hope) it is by the end of the year.

First off, we have the BlackBerry Magnum, which is interestingly referred to as “The BlackBerry Bold portfolio revolution”. What’s so cool about it is that it actually throws a touch-sensitive screen into the deal. Hooray! The phone itself is expected to resemble the Bold almost totally in all aspects.

The BlackBerry Magnum sports both a QWERTY keyboard and a touchscreen

Next up, we have the Onyx. Well, the Onyx should come as a refreshment of the Bold, with a (hopefully) better 3.2MP camera and a smaller body. Of course, there will be a little something for budget-cautious users too. The BlackBerry Gemini is believed to be the replacement of the Curve series, offering a new optical trackball and a 512MHz+ processor. There is yet another affordable solution coming to AT&T, the Pearl 3G. We presume it will have a slightly renewed look, compared to the original Pearl and as it is said, utilize a tri-band UMTS/HSDPA 3.6Mbp connectivity. Check the screenshots for some specs.

actually I seen the Gemini being tested on the Sprint network by one of their techies, so this info is loose and unsupported with any facts. way to make everyone feel like you know something when all your reporting is rumors. BB Storm 2 FTW

I call BS on these documents. Never, in my long history of working in the cellular world, have I seen a drawing used on an official document (let it be from the service provider or the manufacture). The company wouldnt release such information until they knew, for a fact, that they would be getting the phone. I think PhoneArena and Engadget have had a fast one pulled on them......
