BlackBerrry KickStart confirmed

With the proverbial cat out of the bag due to the spy shots making the internet rounds the past couple days, Research in Motion has confirmed the existence of their first foray into the flip (clamshell) style phones in the name of the KickStart. Of course not much information is available except for a few details: GSM/GPRS/EDGE, SureType keyboard, 2 megapixel camera, dual displays with 16-bit color, Wi-Fi, and BlackBerry OS 4.6.

Other features that are still not confirmed is a system like the SE 580i which has a colored light that can be customized to illuminate when the phone is in hibernation. And yet other features make an odd combination like the Edge with WiFi, which is like the old with the new. However this does make sense as this appears to be a T-Mobile product launch and we all know they love that EDGE so much they decided to keep it longer than any wireless provider.
