Blackberry Driftwood "Confirmed" For T-mobile In September

blackberry-onyx1

While this isn’t the first time we’ve gotten wind of a Blackberry codenamed “Driftwood,”  our friends at Boygenius are running with two “sources” who are “confirming” this device for T-mobile in September. Hopefully, rumored to be the first 3G Blackberry device, this should hopefully introduce a little more excitement than the Gemini and its lacking feature set. Rumored specs include the much appreciated 3G, 3.2 megapixel camera, wi-fi with UMA, optical trackpad and GPS. While we’re still going to hold this in the rumored category, we hope to be able to use the words, Blackberry, 3G and T-mobile in more sentences in our postings!

    Right around the time I get to upgrade. I get excited when 3G and Blackberry are in the same sentence (which isn’t very often). I can not wait to get my hands on a new Blackberry.

    meh I think they could have made this device sexier looking…I mean the hardware is definitely hot…but the phone looks like RIM took two steps backward (I think the 8900 looks MUCH sleeker and sexier than this thing)…

  • Galen20K

    I agree that the 8900 looks better but this new phone has more in the looks department of the Niagara and Bold. But I am Really Excited about the Features so I can overLook that.

  • T-Mob

    Engadget is listing these pictures as belonging to the “Magnum”, the AT&T bound BB. Are they the same?

  • Queen4111

    I’m glad that TMO USA is finally getting the 3G BB Curve!
    Too bad 3G service is NOT available in my area. :(

  • J

    By the time the Blackberry comes out, you may have 3G. There should be some new market turn ups by then.

  • Sgt. Cell

    Is this the rumored touchscreen device? Minus the touchscreen, or is there more to come from Rim to T Mobile this year??? Inquiring minds want to know. I only plan on paying for 1 phone this year.

  • Snake

    That would be great if it is to come to Tmo. I know I will be patiently waiting the arrival of the phone…

  • http://www.dont REEM THE DREAM

    finally a 3g blackberry for tmobile

  • Bob

    Being able to tether it will be fantastic. Although it might put a dent in the USB card market.. tethering + 3G + unlimited smartphone data = way better than the USB card with the 5gb/mo cap. And it’s a hell of a lot cheaper.

  • Francisco J Favela

    Finally after so long!! and so many rumors. It’s true blackberry with 3g is go!!!
    and my Curve is on sale.

  • wilbur

    ahh finally something to replace my aged 8320 ive been using since the oct 07 launch my patience is rewarded

  • carlton banks

    does this blackberry have OS…i hope the internet is atleast comparable to the iphone. ive been using the titanium curve since 08 and i refuse to pay the data plan because of the internet, so i hope this one is worth it.

  • dee_shock

    You can get a discount on a new bb when you trade in your old 1.
