UPDATED:Mystery BlackBerry 8600 spotted on film1
But what about the 8600? We cannot see that much of the phone in the photo, but we can tell it has rounded corners and what appears to be an optical trackpad. Since it is running the BlackBerry 5 OS, we can assume that it has 256MB of RAM (The new BlackBerry 6OS requires 512MB of RAM) which would be indicative of a low end device. This is the first time we have seen this model, so if it does go into production, there will be more pictures and information to follow.
The good news is that the 8600 is indeed a real BlackBerry device and despite only having 256MB of RAM, there is a chance that the phone will have the new WebKit browser. The reason we know all that is because the 8600 was actually renamed the 9300. So, Scooby and the Gang have solved another mystery. It wasn't Farmer Jones wearing a mask after all, just RIM playing musical chairs with the model numbers.
