    Here is a quick run down on how the device numbering works. Obviously with new models/new capabilities coming, this will have to be updated. "When there is a conflict in descriptions, the first two numbers' description trumps the last two. For instance the 8820, No camera trumps video recording.


    81xx - Suretype, Non Flip, Camera
    82xx - Suretype, Flip, Camera
    83xx - QWERTY, Non Flip, Camera
    85xx - QWERTY, Non Flip, Camera, Expanded Internal Memory
    88xx - QWERTY, Non Flip, No Camera, GPS, GSM
    89xx - QWERTY, Non Flip, Camera, High Res Screen, Expanded Internal Memory
    90xx - QWERTY, Non Flip, GPS, Camera, High Res Screen, Expanded Internal Memory, 3G, WiFi, Video Recording
    95xx - Touch Screen, Non Flip, GPS, Camera, High Res Screen, Expanded Internal Memory, Video Recording, GSM, 3G
    96xx - QWERTY, Non Flip, Camera, High Res Screen, Expanded Internal Memory, GSM, 3G

    And now the last 2 digits
    xx00 - Base Model, No modifications
    xx10 - GPS, GSM, Video recording
    xx20 - WiFi, GSM, Video Recording
    xx30 - CDMA, EVDO, Video Recording, GPS
    xx50 - CDMA, EVDO, Video Recording, WiFi, GPS


    So For Example:
    9630 - QWERTY, Non Flip, Camera, High Res Screen, Expanded Internal Memory and CDMA, EVDO, Video Recording

    9500 - Touch Screen, Non Flip, Camera, High Res Screen, Expanded Internal Memory Video Recording and Base Model, No modifications

    Also, RIM is beginning to offer devices of the same model number that are sans Camera. The camera module has just been removed and the backplate has been altered slightly. The device is still the same. That is it for now. As more come out I will update this. (or a mod will if so inclined) Also, All camera devices (sans the 8100) have video recording capabilities.

    I don't understand the difference between the 90xx and the 96xx. The only diff is 3G, but the 9630 is 3G..??

    I was about to say that I need to be hoping for a 9650 as my next phone after the 9630, but maybe it should be a 9050....

    Also, Radio has his phone listed as a 9030 which would indicate that it is some kind of a Bold/Onyx for Verizon.........but the xx30 indicates no wifi.........??

    So as I read somewhere, the Odin/aka Storm 2, will be the 9550, and the upcoming Tour/w wifi will be called the 9650. Interesting. Now all we need is more leaked info on specs for the Storm 2/Odin/9550.

    I guess that means I'm going to buy another BB next year when something better than the Tour comes out. Good thing I have all those lines that are eligible to upgrade.

    Doesn't the XX50 also stand for push to talk? Such as the 8350i. Or is it the i that makes it the push to talk?

    I thnk i refers to iDEN which is what Nextel uses for their PTT.

    The 'i' refers to the iDEN PTT. Other devices have PTT, but none have the iDEN branding.

    I have to ask shouldnt the xx30 says gsm capable too? as it does have the radio for that????

    Not all xx30 devices do. I should include it in the 95/96 Series however. Updated

    Why does the 90xx list 3G, but not the 96xx?
    f0xG3 and f0xG3 like this.

    Anything in the 9000 series is GSM 3g. I think for a long time all CDMA Blackberry's have been 3G so even though a CDMA device is in the 8XXX series doesn't mean that its not 3G.

    Yeah it's determined it's a little off.. No worries.

    I didnt try and pick it apart, I just noticed that I had an 8820 in my hand and tried to place it on the list..

    If a mod would like (or i will later) add a line to the first post please. "When there is a conflict in descriptions, the first two numbers' description trumps the last two. For instance the 8820, No camera trumps video recording."
