The Boy Genius has landed an internal RIM document that looks at the new features in the BlackBerry Device Software version 4.6. The document contains plenty of screenshots, including many of the new theme. The new software is intended for its upcoming 3G devices.
The 3G BlackBerry 9000 is expected to be released later this year. It will be preceded by another 3G model though. The BlackBerry 8900 (codenamed Meteor) is expected to be released this summer (perhaps as late as August). Unlike the 9000 which might come with a touchscreen, the 8900 retains the traditional RIM QWERTY keyboard although somewhat flatter than those of previous models.
