BBerry 9000 Proto Review

Fan site Crackberry today landed review an early form of the BlackBerry 9000 has already surfaced today courtesy of a prototype sold without approval online, providing confirmation of most of its features. The handset is now known to be capable of 3G on providers such as AT&T and Rogers, and appears to include both the sharper 480x320 display as well as the updated BlackBerry OS that provides a smoother, more natural interface.

The 9000 is described as feeling thinner than the 8800 it's expected to replace without being wider and is said to have improved on the QWERTY keyboard of the earlier model. Grip is not quite as intuitive as for the 8800 or Curve but is still said to be comfortable.

GPS, Wi-Fi, and other features of the phone haven't yet been confirmed for the new BlackBerry, which is still unannounced by RIM and isn't predicted to ship to end users until July or later.
