BlackBerry Kickstart

HOLY S@#$%@#%$!!!! If you were blown away by the "restroom" pictures of the BlackBerry Kickstart that emerged less than 48 hours ago, get a look at what the BG posted today. More pics and info after the jump. Maybe AT&T isn't always first to get the cool stuff. If you're lucky, you own RIM stock right now as these pics of a T-Mobile branded very very consumer targeted BlackBerry are going to push the trading price way up by end of day. RIM is really focusing on personal customization by the looks of it, and I LIKE THE LOOKS OF IT!

Here's the word on the BlackBerry Kickstart, straight from the Boy Genius:

It looks like the screen is monochromatic with a color glow. Whatever that means. We’re imagining the border around the screen to possibly "glow" different colors and when the outer display is off, it’s invisible. You just see the shiny black face. There’s a whole bunch of colors set to launch with the KickStart and they’ll be anodized. Additionally, the back battery cover will either be a soft-touch rubberized finish, or a low gloss finish. We’d imagine some sort of customization opportunities for the end user with the low gloss finish. Perhaps you could get the battery cover with personalized images and things. We’re not going to flat out call it, but look for a release around September on T-Mobile!

Here's the specs:

  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
  • "Next Gen" SureType keyboard
  • 2 Megapixel camera
  • 16-bit color LCDs
  • Internal LCD is 320×240, external one is 160×128
  • Wi-Fi b,g
  • 3.5mm headset jack
  • OS is 4.6
