GSM-only Blackberry Storm passes FCC

leave a comment »

For all those who are not on Verizon Wireless (or hate it) but have been envying the Blackberry Storm, there is some good news. FCC has approved the GSM-only Blackberry Storm. According to Boy Genius Report, the specs for this phone are:

  • 1GB of memory, 192MB RAM
  • 1400 mAhr battery. Standby time: 528 hours
  • MicroUSB port
  • MicroSD and MicroSDHC expandable up to 8GB
  • 3.2 megapixel camera, flash, 2.5x digital zoom, auto focus, and image stabilization
  • Video capture. Normal mode (480×320) and MMS mode (176×144)
  • Assisted GPS – Enhanced version of GPS that performs at a faster speed
  • Quad-band

There is one downside in that it does not appear to have tri-band HSDPA, which means that it might not be able to leverage AT&T’s 3G network. However, all of you waiting breathlessly, relax, you will get your Storm soon. In the meantime, if you are eligible US voter, take a break from reading this and other news, go out and vote! It is only the most important election in US history. (Sorry, I have to do my part for the cause).
