After months of waiting and news about it from every angle
, the BlackBerry Bold 9650 has finally earned its FCC approval. We've been hearing about this handset for the better portion since the start of the new year
, but it somehow managed to resist the temptation of making its way onto the scene. Sprint customers can surely circle down that May 23rd date,
but for Verizon customers, they're still in the dark about any official confirmation. Following suit like some of its other siblings, the BlackBerry Bold 9650 is a world phone that features CDMA EV-DO, HSPA, and UMTS connectivity – making it the perfect 'Berry for those world travelers. It's accompanied with a 3.2-megapixel camera with flash, optical track pad, Wi-Fi, GPS, 512MB of flash memory, microSDHC support, 1400 mAh battery, and BlackBerry OS 5.0. Pretty much everything is looking good after making its way to the FCC, but it'll be still a few weeks before it'll finally land in stores shelves and into the hands of wanting customers. However, the wait needed for its release offers some solace as we now know for sure that this handset is for real and ready to take after the BlackBerry Tour 9630.
