Until now, BlackBerries have been an open-faced, one-piece mobile device. It's that very reason that many people either love or hate the phones. Finally BlackBerry has launched an alternative, the BlackBerry Kickstart, a clamshell flip-phone, and it's likely to attract a whole new swarm of customers.

"The phone sports a Pearl-esque keyboard, typical trackball navigation, and apparently utilizes both an internal and external LCD screen," Engadget says. "No word on specs, carriers, or a release date, but BGR is saying this puppy is due before the end of the year. You'll know more when we know more!"
