The new BlackBerry, whose initial carrier is still up in the air, had been blessed with several new features. There is some new software as well as some new hardware, including WiFi.
Starting with the software, there is the version 4.3 OS installed. There are also some additions or fixes to SureType, email, and the nifty voice control stuff.
On to hardware where other than the added WiFi, the microSD card slot has been moved to the outside. The cam and its flash have both been improved as well. There will be no GPS sadly, but there is a 3.5mm headset jack.
No definitive word on price or availability. However, I have read rumors of both Sprint and T-Mobile being the first to get it with release dates supposedly as early as November.
