Leaked Slides: BlackBerry Pearl 2, Curve 8310, BlackBerry 8820


Here’s some more fodder to feed your Crackberry addiction. A set of slides has leaked out on the Internet, revealing several details surrounding the new BlackBerry Pearl successor, the updated BlackBerry Curve 8310, and the WiFi-touting BlackBerry 8820.

Starting with the New Pearl, which will be available in both EDGE and CDMA versions, you’ll get several enhancements over the original. The slide talks about things like an externally accessible microSD slot, a 3.5mm headset jack, 2MP camera, improved mic wind protection, and improved lanyard design. What’s more the EDGE version will get 802.11b/g WiFi, whereas the CDMA handset gets GPS. Scheduled for this Fall.

The BlackBerry Curve 8310 will have all the capabilities of the original 8300 Curve and then some. You still get a big display, a QWERTY keyboard, and a 2MP camera with photo flash, but you’ve also got BlackBerry Fast GPS Fix technology, mapping and navigation, and a hot new titanium color.

Last, but not least is the BlackBerry 8820. Like the 8800 which preceded it, the 8820 will be remarkably thin, boast a full-size QWERTY keyboard and a “great” speakerphone, as well as an enhanced media player, but it’ll also bandy around with built-in 802.11b/g WiFi support and integrated GPS.
