Hard Specs Released for BlackBerry 9000

We’ve been itching to get our hands on the newest generation BlackBerry device from Research in Motion ever since it was rumored to have a full face touchscreen. Although we won’t technically be able to purchase a BlackBerry 9000 until later this year, it is a little bit of a relief to get some hard specs on this upcoming business handheld.

Most of this information had been leaked already, but it’s good to get some official confirmation from the good people at RIM. They are telling us that the BlackBerry 9000 will get equipped with quad-band GSM/EDGE and tri-band HSDPA (850/1900/2100), ensuring that you’ll be covered in data everywhere you go. Rou7nding out the specs are a microSD expansion slot, HVGA (480×320) color LCD, trackball navigation, 2 megapixel camera, 802.11a/b/g WiFi, A-GPS, BB OS 4.6, and a 1500 mAh battery.

That’s a lot of connectivity! Given the trackball navigation, there’s a good chance that the BlackBerry 9000 will take on a name similar to the Pearl and Curve. AT&T is set to get the American exclusive and then the 9000 will launch with NTT DoCoMO and Vodafone. Based on the picture, Canadians get their fix via Rogers.
