It’s standard for these to come up as we approach the launch of a device. Last time around was for the BlackBerry PlayBook where the FCC approval showed up online, and before that we can’t even remember because it’s been so long since RIM released a smartphone. Here we see the BlackBerry Bold 9900 get FCC love, so we’re still getting warmer as far as a launch date goes. Interesting find here is that RIM has been testing the device as early as February when we were all drooling over the PlayBook. Nice distractions!
