Blackberry Curve 8900 comes with Wi-Fi and GPS

Tags: BlackBerry

It is quite obvious that RIM haven't been wasting their time recently as it seems that yet another BlackBerry device is just about to hit the shelves. BlackBerry Curve 8900 appeared on the German site of T-mobile revealing quite a lengthy specs sheet. Unfortunately it doesn't include 3G but all the other features seem to be duly covered.

The only mystery remaining is the camera on the Blackberry Curve 8900. The most probable option is a 2 megapixel fixed focus unit as on the previous Curve handsets or the 3 megapixel autofocus snapper we saw on the Storm 9500. Either way, knowing Blackberry users we doubt that it will be a key selling point.

BlackBerry Curve 8900 packs a 65K color landscape TFT display with the nicely sounding resolution of 480 x 360 pixels. It has quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support as well as Wi-Fi connectivity and a built-in GPS receiver (whoa! - both GPS and Wi-Fi on a single Blackberry).

The Blackberry Curve 8900 will be powered by a huge 1400 mAh battery which should provide quite impressive power autonomy. Finally, the usual suspects, Bluetooth and USB are also on board the BlackBerry Curve 8900.

The targeted availability of the handset is November 2008 but its pricing is yet to be disclosed.

How would you edit firmware on an 8320 to allow both GPS and Wifi?
