More information emerges on the Kickstart

Fresh off his big Kickstart announcement, BGR has lots or new pictures and details. This one looks to be interesting, and squarely aimed at not only consumers but the young, hip crowd. Unique features, such as a luminescent ring around the external display, a battery door that can be customized with graphics and a slew of color options make the Kickstart the most radical departure from the traditional BlackBerry yet. The units themselves will be annodized and the battery door will be either soft touch metal, or low gloss for printing graphics onto it.

As far as features go, look for quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (no 3G?!?,) OS 4.6 (the sexy new number found on the upcoming 9000,) WiFi, 2 megapixel camera, 3.5mm headset jack and a"next generation" SureType keyboard. Both displays will be 16 bit color, the internal display is QVGA while the external measures 160x128. The date isn't hard yet, but look for this to land on T-Mobile as early as September.
