Research in Motion (RIM) looks set to ship its next-generation standard-size BlackBerry, said to be called the 8800, in Spring 2007, if a leaked presentation slide turning up in the in-trays of a number of fansites over the weekend are to be believed.

As expected, the 8800 is a stretched - it's 6cm wide - version of the recently launched BlackBerry Pearl 8100, complete with trackball and 1.3 megapixel camera, the latter with a 5x digital zoom, the slide indicates. Apparently, it will also sport an "ultra-slim", 1.6cm-thick design.

Connectivity wise, the device has quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE cellular support, Bluetooth 2.0 and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi. The screen's a 320 x 240 job. The 8800 has 64MB of Flash memory and a Micro SD slot you can use to add more. Like the Pearl, the 8800 has a music- and movie-friendly media player on board. ®
