BlackBerry clamshell

Plans for a new BlackBerry clamshell phone were confirmed today with photos surfacing of the device. The BlackBerry flip phone is codenamed the Kickstart, according to the BGR report and uses the SureType keyboard. It features an external LCD as well as an internal LCD and also uses the TrackBall for navigation. RIM, which also included a new camera in the device, is expected to release it before the end of the year.

Earlier this week, leaked information on the BlackBerry 9000, expected to be quickly launched worldwide, revealed that the full QWERTY phone will boast its expected 3G access with tri-band HSDPA for both the Americas and elsewhere and that it will also be the first BlackBerry to offer 480x320 resolution as well as feature Wi-Fi, assisted GPS mapping, 2-megapixel camera and a microSD slot.
