BlackBerry Atlas to be an upgrade to the Curve 8900?

BlackBerry Atlas has EDGE, GSM support, Wi-Fi

A new BlackBerry handset has shown up in photos on the web recently, thanks to Salomondrin. The screen indicates the model is called an Atlas, but it bears a striking resemblance to the current BlackBerry Curve 8900, including its keyboard, but the back of this new handset has Bold stamped on its backside. The latest from RIM otherwise appears to have the same optical trackpad as the Curve 8520 and the upcoming Bold 9700.

Not much other information is known about this newest BlackBerry, other than it's GSM device and supports EDGE networks as opposed to 3G, which would cast doubt on the Bold title. Wi-Fi is known to be part of the spec, as is an integrated flash. It's also too early to know a release date or price for the handset.
