GSM/3G only BlackBerry Storm 9500 for “Europe”

September 23, 2008 | By | 8 Comments

Thanks to the latest round of spy shots, those of you who were concerned you wouldn’t be able to get your hands on a BlackBerry Storm unless you went to Big Red (aka Verizon) have been saved. Apparently RIM will be releasing a European only model of the Storm with GSM/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA only. This model will be simply just BlackBerry Storm 9500. Check the full specs of the 9500:

  • 7.2 mbps HSDPA/UMTS (2100/1900/850 MHz)
  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
  • 1GB of memory, 192MB RAM
  • 1400 mAhr battery. Standby time: 528 hours
  • MicroUSB port
  • MicroSD and MicroSDHC expandable up to 8GB
  • 3.2 megapixel camera, flash, 2.5x digital zoom, auto focus, and image stabilization
  • Video capture. Normal mode (480×320) and MMS mode (176×144)
  • Assisted GPS – Enhanced version of GPS that performs at a faster speed

This means you should be able to unlock the BlackBerry 9500 and use it on other carriers such as Rogers, Fido, T-Mobie and AT&T. Anyone really excited now??

    Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to understand a lot about this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something. I believe that you can do with a few % to pressure the message house a bit, however instead of that, this is great blog. A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.
