BlackBerry 8980 Hits the FCC… But Why?

November 30, 2010 | By | 1 Comment

I’m really not sure what to say about the latest BlackBerry smartphone to hit the FCC. It’s the BlackBerry 8980, which we heard of months ago. By the looks of the FCC filing its a Curve 8900 dressed into a Bold 9700 style body. The BlackBerry Curve 8980 will be Quadband GSM, with Wi-Fi, and a 3.2 megapixel camera. Sadly we expect to see this device ship with OS 5.0 and we’ve got no idea if it’ll be upgradable to BlackBerry 6 OS. Last but not least we really have no idea if this thing will ever make it to stores in the United States…

Does anyone want to guess why RIM is even bothering with this device? International launch only? Who knows.
