Onyx could actually be Driftwood

by on12 May 2009


T-Mobile U.S. to get it in September

It would appear that the BlackBerry that we thought was the Onyx could actually instead be the BlackBerry Driftwood. Our sources tell us that Driftwood which has the UMA support is the model that has just entered testing, but conflicting information among sources still leads us to think that we got it right the first time and it is, in fact, actually the Onyx.

From what we have learned now, T-Mobile in the U.S. will get the successor to the Curve 8900 first; and if it is the Driftwood it will be the first BlackBerry to offer AWS 1,700MHz and 2,100MHz UMTS/HSDPA support.

We think it is more likely that it will in fact turn out to be the Onyx and that it will be a bit more styled up than the current 8900. Our sources tell us that it will include the optical track pad and it is very likely that it will be known as the Curve 9600 when released.

The target is to have it in store in September, which makes us think it is a bit unlikely that it will, in fact, be the Driftwood.
