T-Mobile to offer 3G BlackBerry next year

Share

In its London press conference this morning T-Mobile’s UK Managing Director Brian McBride confirmed that the phone network expects to be taking delivery of a 3G version of the BlackBerry sometime before the summer next year.

It is kind of hard to imagine the core benefit of a 3G version of the BlackBerry other than it will enable users to download large files more quickly.

It could also speed up web browsing and will hopefully spur BlackBerry maker RIM into improving, or, even better, offering another web browser with its devices.

We are guessing now but we’d expect that the 3G BlackBerry would have significantly more storage than existing models. The most recently launched BlackBerry in the UK, Vodafone’s 7100v has just 32Mb of memory built in.
