BGR also states that the device will launch with an optical trackpad, despite not making an appearance in the leaked shots. As evidenced by the other unreleased BlackBerry, the 8520 Curve or "Gemini", the Canadian handset maker seems to be doing away with the traditional trackballs.

Specs of the device include:

  • 480×360 Resolution screen
  • AWS 1700MHz + 2100MHz UMTS/HSDPA
  • 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera
  • GPS
  • Wi-Fi
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • Optical trackpad
