The upcoming roadmap for Sprint somehow found its way onto the Interwebz today and probably the biggest highlight is the revealing of the BlackBerry 8350i. By Sprint’s own admission, this phone was largely inspired by the BlackBerry Pearl, taking on a very similar form factor and an “industrial” design.
Some of the features that you should expect to see in the BlackBerry 8350i include Nextel Direct Connect, Group Connect, integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, GPS, mini-USB, microSD expansion, BlackBerry Device software v4.6, full QWERTY keyboard, and trackball navigation. There is also an optional 2MP camera with flash.
Look for the BlackBerry 8350i smartphone to hit a Sprint store near you in Q4 of this this year.
