The FCC has posted on its website images and details of the BlackBerry 8980, an unannounced model from RIM. The device is presumed to be a successor to the Curve 8900. The Curve 8980 features almost the same specs, but has picked up WirelessN connectivity and an optical trackpad instead of a regular trackball. The 8980 hits the market in early 2009 and will apparently ship with BlackBerry OS 5, not the newer OS 6 version.
The rest of the specs are quite familiar – 2.4-inch display 480 x 360 screen, QWERTY keyboard, 3.2 megapixel snapper, GPS and microSD card slot. The 8980 brings the regular
quad-band GSM cellular radio and full connectivity options via 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth. Similar to its predecessor, the new Curve 8980 also lacks 3G connectivity. The remain is still unknow.
