BlackBerry 9700 spotted for T-Mobile

updated 12:55 pm EDT, Tue August 11, 2009

T-Mobile BlackBerry 9700

Research in Motion's rumored BlackBerry 9700 is real, according to a person with hands-on experience. A test phone was specifically branded for T-Mobile, which may suggest that the 9700 will be the first 3G BlackBerry for the carrier. The 9700 is also notable for being the second BlackBerry with an optical trackpad, after the Curve 8520. Most BlackBerries rely on a trackball to navigate menus.

The test device also appears to confirm Wi-Fi support, and use of BlackBerry OS 5.0. Previous rumors have hinted that the phone should incorporate GPS, a 3.2-megapixel camera, and a 480x360 display. Aside from T-Mobile, potential carriers are thought to include AT&T and Canada's Rogers. No prices or release dates have so far been hinted at.
