China Gets the BlackBerry Curve 8980 – 9788 Coming Soon

BlackBerry-9788 8980 BlackBerry China

There is nothing really mind blowing in this update but it looks like RIM is finally trying to penetrate the Chinese market. They have just launched the BlackBerry Curve 8980 on China Mobile. This device is an update to the BlackBerry Curve 8910 they launched earlier but adds Wi-Fi. Other than that it is the same device which you can check out on the BlackBerry China page.

RIM is also working on a BlackBerry 9788 for the Chinese market that will finally bring 3G to Chinese BlackBerrys. China has their own TD-SCDMA network so this new 9788 had to be reworked to run on that network. Other than that it will be almost exactly the same as current 9780’s with the OS 6.0 love and 512MB of RAM.

  1. Have fun China.

  2. I have fond memories of the 8900.. I was hesitant to replace it with the 9000 because I was so used to the chicklet style keyboard. But I never looked back, and now look forward to the real Bold successor, Dakota!

    This looks like a good decent phone to introduce to the Chinese market, hopefully RIM is able to make its mark there with how big it is… They’ve made some progress in other large developing nations, I don’t see why it shouldn’t be successful there.

  3. 9788! lol. Maybe RIM realized they were running out of numbers :)

  4. Tads hell of ab “8″
