New BlackBerry devices get outed?This article contains unofficial information.
Three of the models were discussed with a little detail. The first is the BlackBerry Essex. This is a model that we have reported on earlier as a BlackBerry Tour with Wi-Fi and a trackpad. There is also a chance that RIM could be making this a touchscreen model. The Striker 9100 is supposed to be a slimmer, trimmer version of the BlackBerry Pearl and will have 3G connectivity and a trackpad. This model could end up with as a flip phone. The BlackBerry Curve 8530 has already been seen in a spy shot of Verizon's inventory screen. It is a CDMA variant of the 8520 with Wi-Fi included.
RIM has made a point of listening to what the customer wants and following through. A good example of that is the BlackBerry Storm 2 where improvements have been made to the SurePress typing system and Wi-Fi has been added. It seems RIM wants to make sure that there is a different BlackBerry model for everyone.
