    More info on the features on RIM's Kickstar

    BBcool has just posted some slides with info on features that the kickstar will have.

    LInk To Article
    Some more information on the unreleased flip BlackBerry codenamed Kickstart has surfaced… The leaked slides seem to be an attempt to soothe the worries of diehard BlackBerry fans who are used to holstering their devices and checking them in a very specific way. The external LCD screen will prove to be a useful feature, showing off the first few lines of a message, the face of callers, scrolling through alerts easily with the side volume keys, and opening those alerts just by flipping the BlackBerry open. Outside of the business utilities, the outer screen will also show album art of music playing, which can be readily controlled by the volume and muting keys. Pretty standard stuff for existing flips, but definitely gives reasons for sticklers to switch their form factor.

    According to rumors on crackberry.com BlackBerry KickStart will ultimately ship with OS version 5.0 (Bold owners will be able to upgrade from 4.6 to 5.0 when released). Again only rumors but it might be awhile for the kickstart release because why would then BOLD be released with 4.6 OS?

    It's not gorgeous, but I still like the idea of being able to protect my screen, trackball, etc. with a flip. As long as it functions as well as, or better than, my 8120 - which seems likely with an updated OS - I'm at least going to take a long look at it.

    Thanks for the updated info!

    Speaking of Rumors, i started on at work that this BB was being made for RIM by Motorola ROTFLMAO, this place went nuts *Evil Giggle* Motorola did make one the the Sidekicks for Danger, so it wasn't to hard to convince people. But I am not diging a Flip BB, just me but this is not a requirment. And the Hinge area is always a week spot. But that is My opionion and not an attempt to sway any one that likes it.
