, a Chinese web site, shows pictures of the BlackBerry 8980 with the "China Mobile" stamp. Evidently, previous rumors were true and China Mobile got this phone. It is in the testing phase right now. The 8980 will be an EDGE phone only, EDGE or perhaps Evolved-EDGE. It's unclear whether or not the North American - European Market will see it.

The Blackberry 8980 code name "Atlas" specs are not super impressive but just fine for the Curve line. Also unknown at the moment is if the phone will be compatible with OS 6 as it only comes with 256 MB flash/ 256 MB SDR Ram. The general consensus is...probably not, but that could change as RIM has not revealed what phones, if any, will be able to handle the upgrade.

Do you think this phone should enter the North American market?
