RIM, AT&T to host event on August 3. BlackBerry 9800 could be announced
RIM and AT&T are getting ready for a BlackBerry event that will take place in New York City next week, on August 3.
The companies don’t say what is it that they’ll be unveiling, but the long-rumored BlackBerry 9800 slider is likely to be finally announced.
We already know that there is a version of the 9800 made for AT&T, so all we need now is an official confirmation.
The BlackBerry 9800 is RIM’s first slider smartphone and it should feature BlackBerry OS 6, full QWERTY keyboard, a 360 x 480 pixels touchscreen display, GPS, Wi-Fi, 5MP camera (with autofocus, maybe), and 4GB of internal memory (expandable via a MicroSD card slot).
With a 2-yr AT&T agreement, the 9800 will probably not cost more than $200.
