In the same breath as the BlackBerry Unite! announcement, Telefonica has busted out the BlackBerry 8120, which is packing the same OS upgrade that we’ll be seeing on the BlackBerry 8130. Video capture is also a go on this one, which leads us to believe that it’s a feature within the OS – could a future upgrade on your Curves enable video capture?
Of course, the star of The BlackBerry 8120 Show is Wi-Fi, compatible with 802.11 b/g hardware. Gleaning from the specs in Spanish, the 8820 is 107 x 50 x 14 mm, 91g (marginally heavier than the 8100), supports WMV, WMA, MP3, MIDI, AMR-NB, AAC/AAC+/eAAC+, and has a 4 hour talk time and 15 day standby battery life. It’s safe to assume that most of the specifics will closely resemble the BlackBerry 8120′s.
