BlackBerry Gemini Leak
RIM's BlackBerry Gemini has potentially been photographed, if a leak proves true. A lone photo obtained by BGR reportedly shows that the handset also known as the 8325 will be a cross between the 8300 and 8900 Curve in design but appears to have its own unique look with a smooth, silver or white front and chrome-effect trim. Few technical features are revealed through the image.
The Gemini is now thought more likely to be an advanced but still budget device that would have a lower-resolution 320x240 LCD (versus 480x360) and just a 2-megapixel camera but would also have the upcoming, major BlackBerry OS 5 revision and would potentially incorporate 802.11n Wi-Fi, which would make it the first smartphone with the faster short-range wireless. Outside of this, networking in the GSM version would be limited to EDGE.
Unofficially, Gemini isn't expected until late in the year.
