Mystery BlackBerry 10 device with AT&T LTE visits FCC

Mystery BlackBerry 10 device with AT&T LTE visits FCC
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.

I hope for RIM's sake they dont play exclusive with any specific carrier. Palm tried that with Sprint, see how that one turned out?

their not THAT stupid to try and make their stuff exclusive, apple did it for years with att and if they wouldve just kept it open to verizon, att, and sprint then android wouldnt of even had a chance to take off because the market wouldve been dominated already.

I disagree, there will always be room for at least one more player. However, Apple's position would probably be more favorable if not for the exclusivity deal.
