BlackBerry Onyx and Magnum to hit AT&T; BlackBerry Driftwood for T-Mobile?

AT&T’s latest BlackBerry smartphone, the Bold 9000 (currently available for $299.99 on contract), is about five months old now, so you may wonder when new RIM-made devices will come to the giant US carrier.

We can’t say exactly when, but we can say AT&T will be releasing not one, but two BlackBerry smartphones sometime in the future.

According to BGR, the smartphones are codenamed BlackBerry Magnum and BlackBerry Onyx.

The Magnum may be that touchscreen BlackBerry we saw back in October 2008:

It’s said the features of BlackBerry Magnum include:

  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS connectivity
  • 480 x 360 pixels display
  • Full QWERTY keyboard (obviously)
  • GPS
  • Wi-Fi
  • Camera

BlackBerry Onyx should come with exactly the same features, but probably a different design and without a touchscreen.

Another new and unannounced handset is the BlackBerry Driftwood. And while there’s no image with it, we know its features are similar to the ones of Magnum and Onyx, with the addition of UMA support.

The UMA capability makes BlackBerry Driftwood a good handset for T-Mobile USA and its HotSpot service.

All three mentioned BlackBerries (Magnum, Onyx and Driftwood) are from RIM’s 9000 series – like the Bold – and they all have 3G connectivity.

We’ll bring new details as soon as they emerge.
