We’ve seen it before, but here’s another look at what figures to be the next BlackBerry device to hit the market. The BlackBerry Curve 9300 is nearing its release, as you can tell from all the snapshots we’ve seen. Here’s the latest we got, complete with T-Mobile branding.

More after the jump.

This week, BBLeaks published the official specs of the Curve 9300. We covered it in News From The Wire, but as a refresher:

3G and HSDPA
GPS
WiFi with UMA
Processor 624 MHz
256 MB RAM
256 MB Flash
QVGA screen (320 x 240)
2 megapixel camera without flash
MHA 1150 Battery
Multimedia keys
OS 5.0

Yes, that says OS 5.0, and for good reason. From what I’m hearing OS 6 will only work with devices carrying 512MB or more of RAM. That would seemingly rule out the 9300. There is a chance, though, that we see a hybrid version of OS 6 released for these 256MB devices, and a decent chance that the WebKit browser eventually comes to OS 5 devices. Our source says it’s a 70-30 chance at this point. That doesn’t sound too bad at all. It would also be nice for users of older devices to eventually get the WebKit browser.

It looks like T-Mobile in the US and Rogers in Canada will carry this one at the start. I would never rule out AT&T to pick up a GSM BlackBerry, but it appears they’re all in on the 9800 at this point. I’ll leave you with one last glimpse of the device:
