According to an alleged leak, RIM's new BlackBerry 9100 will serve as their answer to Apple's iPhone by sporting several more advanced features. It will have a touchscreen of the same size and 320x480 resolution, as well as 3G over HSPA. Carmi Levy, analyst with AR Communications Inc., thinks that this will make it less of a business device."The 9000 is supposed to be a touch-screen device, very similar in form factor to the iPhone," Levy says. "Which means that it is not an enterprise-friendly device."It also has both real GPS and Wi-Fi. Further more, it may also be slightly faster with a 624MHz Intel XScale processor instead of the iPhone's 620MHz ARM chip.It contains all of the same features of previous models. It will most likely have at least a 2 megapixel camera, but it may see a 3.2 one by that time.
Because of the large screen, it is assumed that it will not contain a physichal keyboard, though a slide-out one is possible.It is predicted that it will be announced some time around winter of 2008
