Looking like a cross between an Atari 800XL and a Blackberry 9900, this device was spotted over on CrackBerry.com forums. It seems a site called MaxPDA.com posted a bunch of pictures of this device, and nobody seems to know if this is a prototype, a one-off copy, or ( hopefully not, in my humble opinion ) an indication of Blackberry’s new designs. The “Proceeding” name across the top is odd, the keyboard is completely strange, but the internals look modern. One of the shots shows the battery cover off, and it looks like NFC ( Near-Field Communications) or wireless charging ( ala Touchstone ) is implemented. MaxPDA also reports it’s running OS 7.0, so it’s also not a new QNX-OS based device. Leave a comment, and let us know what you think of this strange device.
