3G BlackBerry Curve said to be in the works

'Gemini' has revamped keypad too

The essential guide to IT transformation

Word’s broken through that RIM has designed a new 3G BlackBerry, to be called the Gemini.

The Gemini – which will also be known as the 9300 – should be thought of as a 3G model of the existing BlackBerry Curve, according to an account from Boy Genius Report.

This statement leads us to believe that the Gemini looks very similar to the Curve. However, the latest model’s said to sport rounder keys on its main keypad, and the phone’s Send/End keys have been given rounder edges.

Moles talking to BGR also said that the phone will sport a more powerful processor than the 624MHz chip to be found on the Curve.

In terms of connectivity, the unannounced device is also thought to support quad-band GSM, GPRS and Edge.

Many critics lambasted RIM for its decision to leave Wi-Fi support out of its flagship phone, Storm, so it’s unsurprising to learn that confirmation of Wi-Fi – or even GPS – still hasn’t come through.

A launch date or potential price hasn’t been leaked yet. ®
