I really don’t know what to make of this new picture that was leaked over at BerryCn. The pictures is the “about” Screen of a BlackBerry 8600. So far what we know is that it sports a trackpad, running OS 5.0, platform 126.96.36.199 and it also has the same 3G bands that T-mobile uses. We have already seen leaked pictures and videos of a 9300 an upgraded version of the 8500 that we expect to hit Tmobile and few other carriers in the next few months. We also expect the 9780 to hit T-mobile and AT&T around the holidays.
So what do you make of this new BB? Could it be a new curve model, maybe touch screen or a prototype that we may not see make it to production. The weird part is the model number 8600 that it would make sense to replace the 8500 series but so far it would seem that spot is what the 9300 will take.
Hopefully we will see a picture of the actual device soon.
UPDATE: Since the 8600 model # did not make any sense I asked our friend Bla1ze from CB and he pointed out that it is in deed the same device we now know as the 9300. The 8600 was renamed as the 9300.
