Oh how we love a bunch of good BlackBerry rumors! Boy Genius is reporting on three new BlackBerry models with some really odd internal code-names. The first three devices should all be part of the 9000 series family and be quite sweet. The first device is BlackBerry Onyx which is said to feature 3G with Wi-Fi, GPS and a high resolution display. Next is Driftwood which is could be a smaller version of Onyx featuring 3G, Wi-Fi with UMA support, GPS and a slightly smaller screen? Last we have BlackBerry Magnum which apparently Boy Genius has confirmed to be launching on AT&T sometime this year; Magnum is said to feature a 3G radio with GPS, Camera, Wi-Fi, full QWERTY keyboard and a high resolution (480×360) display.

The last rumor BGR is reporting on is the highly rumored BlackBerry Gemini. Well rumor has it its just one device its will be a whole lineup of low-end Curve devices. Apparently RIM is planning several refeshes to their lineups for the Curve, Bold and maybe even Pearl series. Interesting eh?
