Meet the first BlackBerry 3G for T-Mobile

By: T-Marco May 11th, 2009

T-Mobile will be launching a 3G-enabled 8900  BlackBerry in September. This looks to be the much-rumored BlackBerry Driftwood/Onyx .BGR goes with Driftwood only because Driftwood was the only device with UMA support, but who knows. Here’s a recap of the specs:

  • AWS 1700MHz + 2100MHz UMTS/HSDPA
  • 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera
  • GPS
  • Wi-Fi
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • Optical trackpad
  • 480×360 screen
  • Carbon fiber-esque back battery cover (the whole back is a carbon fiber pattern apparently)
  • Much sexier than the BlackBerry 8900

We don’t have pricing or anything like that, but we couldn’t imagine this going for more than $199 on a 2-year when September rolls around. This will be T-Mobile’s first 3G BlackBerry device and definitely not their last. 8520, your move.

    Great news TMobile!!!! I know that I join other faithful TMobile business customers that are thrilled with this addition. I have a Blackberry 8900 and find it to be a great phone…..will there be any way to upgrade to the 3G feature?

    When do we get blackberry 3G. I think a lot of customers are moving to other providers because of this.
