BlackBerry Gemini 9300: The Curve-y 3G BlackBerry We Really Want

A fresh dump from Boy Genius's RIM spy reveals this perfect-through-evolution BlackBerry: The Gemini 9300 is about the size of the svelte BlackBerry Curve 8900, but with 3G and a bigger, higher resolution screen. Want.

It, in other words, is all of the Bold's power—maybe even more power than the Bold, with a faster processor—in the more pocketable package of the 8900. The keyboard is rounder, too, even more like the Bold's (which I love more than any other QWERTY keyboard on any other device, bar none).

The sad news is that it's looking like a late 2009, early 2010 release—the beginning (end?) of RIM's transition to 3G in all of their phones. Something that should've happened this year, really. Ah well. [BGR]
