Welcome the BlackBerry Curve 9300 aka Keppler. Front and center!!
Earlier in the year, Brett as well as the rest of us were watching the pipeline for devices that Research In Motion had been working on. And while it would seem that the BlackBerry makeover days would fall upon us over the course of these last few months, two characteristics started to emerge.
Form factors of earlier devices were being made to evolve to contemporary hardware and the badging (monikers) of devices were keywords that RIM seemed to standardize.
Kevin from CrackBerry received a few photos of the next "low-cost" line of BlackBerry devices. Dubbed the BlackBerry Curve, this remake of the 8500 would follow suit with an earlier progression of the BlackBerry Bold 9000 to its current day transformation into the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and the latest BlackBerry Bold 9650.
While the device is being shown sporting Wifi, Kevin's article suggests that the 9300 will should carry over the 8500's spec as well. That would bring 3G network access and at least a 512 MHz processor.
What's your first impressions? Is there anything you would like to comment on about the BlackBerry 9300?
