BlackBerry 8800 Photo Leak

The Boy Genius Report today said that it has obtained both a BlackBerry 8800 and details of its final launch. Commenting on the feel and use of the device after hands-on testing, the anonymous author observed that the 8800 represented a significant upgrade over both the full-size 8700 (pictured at right) and the company's now-famous Pearl, offering a slightly smaller fit than the former while responding more quickly and with better speaker quality than the latter.

The site was also keen to reveal firm details for the smartphone's imminent arrival in the US. Releasing February 20th with Cingular, the 8800 should be available for $499 by itself or $299 when attached to a two-year agreement, according to BGR. Crucially, however, the version set to appear first in the US will not include the 8800's inherent Wi-Fi ability, saving the feature instead for an as yet unknown provider or unlocked version. An additional profile photo from the leak is available after the jump.
