Revealed by Boy Genius, the handset uses a SureType keyboard, has an external LCD, and a larger internal LCD. It also uses the TrackBall for navigation and has a built-in camera.

RIM plans on releasing this before the end of the year, with more details likely to appear in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out the gallery on the Boy Genius site for more images.
