T-Mobile BlackBerry 8800 coming in April

28 Comments

I think this is as close to confirmed as we’ll get for the next little while. An email’s been sent out to T-Mobile customers, one brought to attention by our new favourite BBCool reader Darien, and one that lends some 8800 info – it’s coming, it’s coming.

As you know T-Mobile USA has been working to stay on the cutting edge of the wireless industry. To this end we have been working to introduce products that will showcase our position as the premier carrier in the US…

…the second link (to BlackBerry8800.com – Steve) gives you a look at the newest BlackBerry – the BlackBerry 8800 that will be released in April. It has the full keyboard like the BlackBerry 8700 in a sleek case like the BlackBerry Pearl.

Think of it as only a few weeks away, folks.
