BlackBerry 9020 exposed?

Research in Motion's Onyx smartphone has been revealed as the BlackBerry 9020, a new report claims. The phone's operating system is said to display the moniker in more recent updates, signifying a firm place within the RIM hierarchy. In particular it is thought that the 9020 will be a successor to the BlackBerry Bold, otherwise known as the 9000. It would also be just the third 9000-series BlackBerry, after the Storm.

The 9020 is believed to be a GSM phone with additional 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi receivers. Screen resolution has been increased slightly to 480x360, and the official American carrier is expected to be AT&T. Like the Bold the 9020 continues to use a trackball, rather than the Storm's touchscreen or the Curve 8520's optical trackpad. The QWERTY keyboard used is identical to that of the Bold.
