BlackBerry Curve 9380 spins through FCC with T-Mobile 3G

FCC confirms Curve 9380 coming to T-Mobile USA

A new FCC filing has virtually confirmed that the BlackBerry Curve 9380 should reach T-Mobile. After clearing a version with 850MHz and 1,900MHz 3G friendly to AT&T and most Canadian carriers, the agency has greenlit a version with WCDMA band IV, or the 1,700MHz band T-Mobile USA needs for 3G. A needed Safety and Product Information document from the FCC also confirms that there are two models, the REA70UW being the regular GSM version and REB70UW being T-Mobile-friendly.

The two should be identical outside of network support. As the first touch-only Curve, it has a 3.2-inch, 360x480 display, an 800MHz processor, and a five-megapixel camera with a flash. Just 512MB of storage is built-in, leaving the microSDHC slot to hold the most.

T-Mobile has yet to confirm the Curve 9380. An FCC appearance points to a launch relatively soon, and possibly before the end of the year. Smaller Canadian carriers such as Mobilicity and Wind Mobile are equal candidates. [via Wireless Goodness]
