Leaked picture of the BlackBerry Curve 9300


With the BlackBerry Pearl 3G set to arrive in the next week or so I just stumbled upon a nice article over at A secret spy has managed to get hold of some pictures of the next generation BlackBerry Curve, the 9300.

The main change I can see here is the chrome bezel around the outer edge. This is not present on the curve 8520 (and 8530 in the USA). The BlackBerry Curve 9300 is believed to retain the lower res 320×240 display which is a shame but it will come with Wi-Fi and 3G as standard and that is a big bonus.

The device is clearly in its early stages as the screen shots below shows it with 256MB of memory vs.. the 512MB newer devices are getting. Also this device is running version 5.0 which will hopefully be upgraded to BlackBerry 6 in time for an official announcement.

The back cover on the 9300 has a nice mottled finish on it which will also be an improvement over the Curve 8520 which currently has a smooth plastic cover.

Looks like RIM have been rather busy lately. Definitely a step in the right direction.
