Yesterday, the folks over at Crackberry got their hands on images of the BlackBerry Curve 9300; the heir apparent to the 8500 series. The divulged specs look like this: 320 x 240 display, 256 MB of RAM, Wi-Fi (b/g/n), optical trackpad and BlackBerry OS 5. The unit pictured is a GSM joint, although Crackberry assures its readers that a CDMA variant will emerge at some point. The phone has a rubberized back and side convenience keys — much like the current 8500 series — a full chrome bezel that wraps around the front, and the same keyboard as the 8900/85xx. A pretty obvious and evolutionary update to the best-selling Curve line. No word on the availability of this unit, although…one of our Verizon connects promised us a new Curve on Big Red by the end of summer. Any takers?
