There you go! CrackBerry has just completed the first hands-on of the unreleased BlackBerry code-named Onyx. The Onyx has been talked about for a few months now. It’s NOT the touchscreen QWERTY BlackBerry, but rather a more traditional device featuring a 3G radio with Wi-Fi, GPS, and 3.2 megapixel camera. Its expected that this model may actually become part of the Tour family joining the CDMA 9630.

Here is a list of known features:

  • 3G device – GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS (Bands: 850, 900, 1800, 1900)
  • 480 by 360 display, beveled edges
  • 256 megabytes of internal memory (same as Curve 8900, 8520)
  • 1550mAh M-S1 battery (same as Bold)
  • 3.2 megapixel camera, with flash and auto focus
  • GPS and Wi-Fi

At this time the processor speed isn’t exactly known but its expected to be a little faster than the Bold’s 624MHz one. No ETA as to when this device will be released, but stay tuned for more details coming within the next little bit.
