Blackberry Driftwood, T-Mobile’s first 3G Blackberry, gets pictured in the wild

By: Shawn August 10th, 2009

From the MyTouch, to the Touch Pro2, to the Morrison, to the Galaxy, to the T659, to the Rover N900, T-Mobile is stepping up their phone selection as back-to-school shoppingcommences. In T-Mobile’s upcoming lineup, we see cheap mid-end devices (T659), slick new Android devices (MyTouch & Morrison), great touchscreen high-end phones (Touch Pro2 & Galexy), not to mention a ground breaking Nokia Internet Tablet (N900 Rover). But what is missing? Ah, that’s right, a 3G, Wifi, Blackberry with upgraded track ball, memory, form, software, just about everything.

Meet the Blackberry Driftwood. This Beauty, heading to T-Mobile’s shelves in Q4 of 2009, will take the Curve’s place as T-Mobile’s most feature-rich Blackberry (Note: The Driftwood is not actually replacing the Curve in T-Mobile’s lineup). The Driftwood, also known as the T-Mobile Blackberry 9700, will feature:

  • T-Mobile 3G
  • Wifi
  • GPS
  • 3.2 Megapixel Camera
  • Beautiful Form Factor
  • QWERTY Keyboard
  • Leather-like back
  • Optical Trackpad

While a release date remains unknown, we are working on digging something up for you. In the mean time, check out our Google Voice Contest!

    I wonder if it comes with more onboard memory than the 8900? I love my 8900, but it is a crime I had to get a new 2yr contract in April to get the 8900, now to see this released in the same year. Ugh! I hope it has better battery life than the 8900…
