So I know how everyone has been waiting for a 3G version of the BlackBerry Curve 8900. CrackBerry Kevin received a great tip including image on the BlackBerry Onyx which will be launching on T-Mobile later this year (September possibly?). Details are still VERY foggy on this model but apparently it will sport the hot new Optical Trackball along with a much sexier body than the Curve 8900. Boy Genius also claims that this BlackBerry code-named “Onyx” will feature AWS 1700MHz + 2100MHz UMTS/HSDPA, 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, Wi-Fi, full QWERTY keyboard and a large 480×360 high resolution display. Hopefully we will see a front shot very soon? Stay tuned.
Update: Looks like the folks at Engadget got some extra shots of the “Onyx” including a full frontal shot. Funny enough this picture doesn’t have the optical trackball that BGR was talking about. Any luck at all this is just an early prototype that they haven’t installed it on yet.
