Rumor: BlackBerry Onyx to be announced October 21?


Well, well. What do we have here? Apparently, Engadget has it on “good authority” that the BlackBerry Bold successor, aka Bold 2 / Onyx (it’s not clear which name will hit the streets, but either way it’s the 9700), will be announced on October 21…for AT&T and T-Mobile.

We were already pretty sure that the Onyx would be hitting AT&T’s shelves, but as for T-Mobile, that was less certain. And in case you forgot why you cared, just take gander over these speculated specs: quad-band GSM, 3.2MP camera with auto-focus (and rumored image stabilization), 480 by 360 display, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, 3.5mm audio jack, and an optical trackpad. Guess we’ll all find out in just under 2 weeks.
