Overshadowed by all the BB Torch 9800 news and BlackBerry 6 announcement from yesterday the new BlackBerry 9300 was quietly launched by Rogers. This is not a huge game changer but certainly a nice addition to the BlackBerry line. You can pick up this device from Rogers on a 3yr commitment for as low as $79.99 with no contract at $399.99.
Some specs for this device include a 2MP Camera, no flash, and a 256MB of Flash Memory, with a screen resolution of 320×240. If you are a current 8520 user this would be a nice upgrade because it supports 3G for faster data. one thing to note is that RIM possibly forgot to issue a press release or completely forgot about the device since is not even listed on their website as of today. For more information visit Rogers official site.

The question is are you planning on buying this device or going to wait for the 9800? We expect this device to hit the US market through T-mobile USA. We have not heard if this device will support BB 6, it be a bad decision if RIM does not support it because it could be a better selling point.
