RIM can scratch one more item off its "to do list" now that the FCC has given BlackBerry 10 a thumbs up
. The Feds apparently got a look at three devices that ran BlackBerry 10.0.9 and the phones had AT&T LTE and GSM bands on board, along with a few international frequencies. This is the first time that we've seen a specific carrier tied to the new BlackBerry 10 models. The LTE connectivity confirms one of the rumored specs of the BlackBerry Z10 model.
As you might expect, as we get closer to the introduction of BlackBerry 10, we are seeing more leaks than an overworked plumber. On Saturday, we showed you some pictures of the all-touch BlackBerry Z10
. Early Sunday, it was the BlackBerry X10 pictured
with its physical QWERTY keyboard. It's great to see RIM embrace an all-touch format while at the same time not forgetting that messaging is important to BlackBerry users.
