CrackBerry got their hands on some exclusive slides showing features and minor details of the upcoming BlackBerry Kickstart. Basically the Kickstart will act just like any other flip phone for calls its the messaging features that set it apart. The Kickstart will of course feature RIM's BlackBerry OS and Suretype QWERTY keyboard for messaging.
Now one of the interesting parts is that the Kickstart will launch with OS 5.0 (possibly even before the BlackBerry Bold gets it? but don't worry you'll be able to upgrade).
