blackberry-9xxxWhat’s that RIM has up their sleeves for the BlackBerry 9xxx? Could it be a front-facing video camera? According to Spanish blogger Luis Rodriguez, the answer is yes. It seems that Rodriguez has had a prototype version of the upcoming 9xxx on hand for a little while now, and recently revealed a couple of interesting bits of information.

According to Rodriguez, the new BlackBerry will sport an external microSD slot, similar to the current Pearl 2 models, a bigger battery to handle the 3G radio. Rodriguez goes on to say there’s a front-facing video camera for video-chatting. We haven’t heard any info that would suggest the presence of a front facing camera, but we suppose a surprise or two from RIM wouldn’t be unwelcome. If the rumor is true, let’s just hope it doesn’t further contribute to the power management issues that seem to be plaguing the new handset.

As far as the front facing camera goes, its a plus for those snapping pictures of themselves. One no longer has to use the tiny self viewer on the back of current BlackBerry’s to get a good picture. With the possibility of viewing yourself on the screen, I see a lot of vain BlackBerry users rejoicing. On a lighter note, this upgrade could be used to take advantage of the 9000’s 3G upgrade supporting Video Phone. Currently the only company to roll out with the video phone service is good old AT&T, with there Video Share service. It works one way, unlike similar services in Europe but it works darn good! Theirs something to get excited over!
