What is this thing? A BlackBerry 9980?

On the Chinese website maxpda.com appeared an article showing a mysterious BlackBerry 9980. It seems to be some variant of the BlackBerry Bold 9900, yet the design is very different. I don’t want to use the word “ugly”, but the design is not for everyone.

Whether this is a genuine BlackBerry device or some fake model, we don’t know. According to the information available, the supposed BlackBerry 9980 is just a BlackBerry Bold 9900 in a completely new design. The battery is the same as the Bold 9900’s and this new device also runs on BlackBerry OS 7. Here are a few more pictures:




There are even more pictures and a description in the Maxpda article on the supposed BlackBerry 9980. Let me know what you think about this device in the comments.
