T-Mobile to get BlackBerry Onyx near end of year

T-Mobile has allegedly confirmed its plans to launch RIM's BlackBerry Bold 9700, known as the Onyx, sometime before the end of the year. The smartphone will support the carrier's UMA Wi-Fi calling service, available using HotSpot@Home, according to CIO. Press photos appear to confirm that RIM has omitted a trackball in favor of an optical pad.

Other features include a pre-installed Amazon MP3 store, TeleNav GPS navigation, and a 480x360 LCD resembling the Curve 8900's display. Rumors suggest the device could offer longer battery life than its predecessor, along with 256MB of application memory.

A specific release date and pricing information for the Onyx remain unknown. The press documents were reportedly scheduled for release sometime in November, potentially indicating availability for the holiday shopping season.
