A very brief description of an upcoming BlackBerry smartphone has been leaked on the Web.
According to a report on Engadget, a device code-named Stealth will be rolled out by Cingular Wireless in November of this year.
Details are very sketchy, but it seems this device will be part of Research in Motion’s (RIM) smartphone line, rather than being one of its cellular-wireless handhelds.
This means it won’t include a full QWERTY keyboard. Instead, it will use RIM’s SureType system, in which each key handles two letters.
In addition to using Cingular’s GSM/GPRS network, the Stealth will supposedly offer support for the slightly faster EDGE standard, though not the even faster UTMS.
Also, this unconfirmed information indicates that this smartphone will include an MP3 player and some form of removable memory.
At this point, it is not known what Cingular plans to charge for the BlackBerry Stealth.
