Is this the next BlackBerry Curve?

bb-8980-fcc

This one has apparently shown up for FCC approval in the States and is called the BlackBerry Curve 8980.

It’s rumored to have a QVGA screen, a 3.2 megapixel camera and only be EDGE which will not be everyone’s cup of tea.

In fact when I first heard about this one I was a little disappointed and initially thought what is the point in this.  However, I soon realised that this one does have a place in the market.

The Curve 8980 may be the replacement for the 8520. The 8520 was reviewed by us over a year ago so this would be perfect timing for a new improved version. The Curve 8520 has been a huge seller, particularly here in the UK where I see a so many youngsters with them so I see no reason why the 8980 shouldn’t follow suit. I could be totally wrong though and it will really depend on price.
