RIM is apparently looking to reinforce the differences between the Curve line and the Bold. With a new BlackBerry visiting the FCC, it was nice to see that the trackball has been replaced by the now common trackpad. But what was missing from the phone
was 3G. This model will take you to the EDGE, but not a step over. This all dovetails with talk that RIM was going to offer a Curve 8910 with the new trackpad technology, a phone we recently told you
about. While one explanation could be that this is a model for the Euro market that uses 3G bands that the FCC has no control over, another explanation is that RIM is reinforcing the idea that if you want 3G on a 'Berry, aim for the Bold or higher. No carrier or launch date was provided, and pricing also is unknown at this point.
