Many of you must be interested to get first glimpse of the BlackBerry 9000, the latest device from RIM. The real kicker, though, might be the beautiful user interface, which has been totally revamped from the ground up; gone is the cartoonish look and feel of the current lineup, replaced with a modern, warm theme with wireframe icons and slick animations. For a long time, rumor had it that the new BlackBerry device from RIM was going to be touch-screen and there were even mock-ups of what it would look like. As you can clearly see, there are the usual buttons that all BlackBerry devices have. RIM has stuck to what they do best, and that does not involve any fancy touch-screen. In the business-world, actual buttons is what a lot of people want versus an on-screen keyboard like what the iPhone features.
Engadget Mobile points out some of the new features:
- New interface - previous interface was “cartoonish” while the new one is more modern with wireframe icons
- New “slick” animations
- Features WiFi and HSDPA
