According to an unconfirmed report, T-Mobile USA is getting ready to launch the RIM BlackBerry 8800 in just a couple of weeks.

This cellular-wireless handheld is currently available only from Cingular Wireless, but this will change on Monday, April 23, if The Boy Genius Report is correct.

An Overview of the BlackBerry 8800

This cellular-wireless device has a full QWERTY keyboard and is large enough to qualify as a handheld, though many might call it a smartphone.

It is one of RIM’s first models to include significant support for multimedia, including playing video and MP3 files.

In addition to multimedia support the 8800 has other things in common with the BlackBerry Pearl, such as its trackball in place of the traditional jog dial. It also dispenses with the Pearl’s built-in camera in favor of a GPS receiver.
