It seems the aging BlackBerry Curve 8900 is finally getting a successor. The Curve 8980 features almost the same specs, but has picked up WirelessN connectivity and an optical trackpad instead of a regular trackball.

The rest of the specs are quite familiar - 2.4-inch display, QWERTY keyboard, 3.2 megapixel snapper, GPS, Bluetooth and microSD card slot. Similar to its predecessor, the new Curve 8980 also lacks 3G connectivity.

There is no info on the processor or the amount of RAM yet, but the OS should be BlackBerry OS 5. But don't worry, there will be upgrade to OS 6 for sure.

We guess the official announcement should take place soon.
