Blackberry Onyx, Driftwood and Magnum slated for possible 2009 release

Research in Motion is apparently working on three new Blackberry designs which, says observers, have a good chance of all appearing in 2009 - in addition to the recently spotted Gemini. Apparently, all three devices will reside in the 9000 series family and all will include 3G for fast data transfer.


The first, the Onyx will be a GSM / GPRS / EDGE / UMTS device that will feature a full QWERTY keyboard, GPS for location finding plus a camera - but there is no news about the specific specification - Wi-Fi (but no UMA support). Apparently, it will be based upon a 480×360 resolution screen, according to the BGR website.


The Driftwood will also be a GSM / GPRS / EDGE / UMTS device that will also feature a keyboard, GPS, Wi-Fi (with UMA support) and a camera. The Magnum repeats many of the same specifications such as data transfer modes, GPS, camera, WiFi (no UMA support), keyboard plus screen. No price details are available at present.
