BlackBerry Dallas and BlackBerry Venice imported into India for evaluation
BlackBerry ships a pair of new handsets to India for evaluation
Yesterday, we told you that the unannounced BlackBerry Dallas had been certified in Singapore, Malalsia and Indonesia. This is the model that has the same specs as the BlackBerry Passport, but has rounded corners on the bottom and a top bezel that contains the speaker grill, front-facing camera and the ambient/proximity light sensors.
The BlackBerry Dallas, which had been earlier leaked as the BlackBerry Oslo, has a model number of SQW100-4 and has appeared on the Zauba website. This is the site that tracks imports and exports into and out of India. According to the site, the Dallas was shipped from Canada to India for evaluation on July 4th. Two units were received and each one is valued at a price equivalent to $388 USD.
Another BlackBerry model shipped into India for evaluation is the STV100-3. This is probably the BlackBerry Venice, an Android powered slider with curved glass that is expected to be an AT&T exclusive in the U.S. Five units of the STV100-3 were shipped into India, and each one has a value of $996 USD. The Venice isn't expected to see the light of day until November.
