BlackBerry 9670, 9800 and 9300 get video fondle

It's BlackBerry leak time again, and today it's a trio of new RIM devices that have made their way in video form to Salomondrin.  His anonymous tipster has sent hands-on overviews of the BlackBerry 9670 Clamshell, BlackBerry 9800 Slider and the BlackBerry 9300 (which basically adds 3G to the 8520).

The BlackBerry 9800 is branded AT&T and is of course running BlackBerry OS 6.0, and while the software isn't final is running pretty snappily.  Meanwhile the BlackBerry 9670 is an older revision than what RIM will actually be releasing - it has a 3.2-megapixel camera, whereas newer prototypes have 5-megapixels - but we're beginning to like the size of the new phone when closed.

As for the BlackBerry 9300, that's basically a minor 3G update to the previous entry-level Curve, and in this case is T-Mobile branded.  The 9300 showed up among a leaked list of upcoming UK smartphone releases yesterday tipped for an August 4th 2010 debut.
