News of forthcoming BlackBerry smartphones from RIM have supposedly been leaked from an insider, according to US blog the Boy Genius Report.

Said to be due to RIM's 9000-series family, the three rumoured models are all 3G and are code-named Onyx, Driftwood and Magnum.

If the info is correct, the BlackBerry Onyx and Magnum will both offer GPS, a camera, Wi-Fi connectivity, a QWERTY keyboard, a 480 x 360 resolution screen and are said to be "confirmed" for US operator AT&T.

The similarity in the two device's specs are possibly explained by the fact that one of the devices could offer a touchscreen, similar to RIM's BlackBerry Storm.

Finally, the BlackBerry Driftwood, a GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS device, is also said to offer GPS, a camera, Wi-Fi and a QWERTY keyboard.

We will keep you posted.
