BlackBerry 8980 Revealed

BlackBerry 8980 at FCC

The Edge-only BlackBerry Curve 8980 was shown up in FCC. Guys over FCC (Federal Communications Commission) presented the new documents about the upcoming BlackBerry 8980, which is assumed to be the successor to the Curve 8900.

According to some sources, The handset is believed to be the final version of the codenamed “Atlas”, and was expected to be released at Verizon in the US. It will feature a quad-band GSM/EDGE radio antenna, Wi-Fi b/g/n, optical trackpad, full Qwerty keyboard, 2.4-inch, 480 x 360 pixels screen, 3.2-megapixel camera with flash and it is expected to be running with BlackBerry OS 5 and it is having 3.5mm headset jack. This may be a very low-cost model, as it won’t have support for 3G networks.

The device looks physically similar to the BlackBerry 9700. However, RIM hasn’t announced this handset officially yet. This FCC spotted device also features the “China Mobile” branding which can be expected that it won’t sell in the U.S. but rather be given approval for use.
