BlackBerry 9000 first impressions

Waiting for that BlackBerry 9000, are you? The secret BGR phone line just rang, and it was one of RIM ninjas! Here’s what they had to say about the BlackBerry 9000 and the pros and cons of using the device in its current state:

  • Everything we reported was true. 624MHz processor, 480×320 screen, GPS, Wi-Fi, 3G, etc.
  • The web browser flies. “Loads web pages in 3-4 seconds.”
  • The BlackBerry 9000 in its current state runs OS 4.5
  • Early launch date was slated for a consumer AT&T launch on June 18th. Remember that we predicted the device was delayed. See below.
  • The battery lasts around 4 hours with straight phone calling. “Battery sucks, to be honest. With Wi-Fi on, I only got a little less than two hours browsing the web,” and all testers are reporting huge battery issues which could be why we’re all hearing it is delayed.
  • We’re not sure of the next part, but he said that the device either has 256MB of internal memory or 128MB. Don’t ask why we couldn’t tell the difference.

That’s all we got for now!
