The BlackBerry 9780 was the subject of a story we recently reported
on as the handset wound up getting filed on a UAProf. Basically a refreshed Bold 9700, it does look that the handset will be launched with the new BlackBerry 6 OS under the hood, and come equipped with the new WebKit browser. As we said, much of the hardware is the same as the Bold 9700 with the same form factor, screen resolution and battery. It is a GSM device which means it is heading for either T-Mobile, AT&T or both in the U.S., and while we have seen videos of both the OS and browser working on the touchscreen 9800, this is the first time that both have been captured on a QWERTY device. Wherever this model ends up, it would appear that a launch is not too far away.
