BlackBerry "Krypton" gets a green light from the FCC
The FCC filenames call the phone "Krypton," although we suspect that this could be an extension of the DTEK line which currently includes the mid-range DTEK50 and high-end DTEK60. There has been talk about the Krypton getting launched next month, and with all of the certifications it recently has received, that appears to be likely.
The FCC documentation shows the Krypton name belonging to BlackBerry model BBD100-2, and that is one of four variants listed by the Wi-Fi Alliance. The others included BBD100-1, BBD100-3 and BBD100-6.
Unfortunately, images of the phone are covered under the short term confidentiality agreement requested by TCL. The agreement covered the following files that TCL placed with the FCC:
- External Photos
- Internal Photos
- Test Setup Photos
- User manual
There has been speculation that following the Krypton, BlackBerry Mobile will release the "Juno," which will be another handset featuring a physical QWERTY keyboard.
