While many folks are concentrating on all the BlackBerry running Android rumors and speculation, it has been rather easy to forget there's still one other BlackBerry device out there that still remains somewhat of a mystery. The BlackBerry 'Dallas' aka SQW100-4, better known thus far as the 'Oslo' has gone through many rumors itself, but the latest news has it being certified in Singapore through IDA and in Malaysia through e-CoM.

UPDATE - New evidence shows this device might not be codenamed Oslo after all. Instead, BlckBerry has taken to calling it 'Dallas' with the latest OS. But it's just a codename still either way.

While the first photo of BlackBerry 'Oslo' was nothing more than a pixelated render, the devices second appearance offers a significantly better look at the Passport-like design. As noted by N4BB, the device brings the same exact specs (2.2GHz MSM8974 Snapdragon processor, 13 MP Camera, 3 GB RAM, 3450 mAh battery) of the Passport but in a slightly different form factor with a combination of steel frame mixed with silver plastic.

By now, everyone knows the story of the rounded off BlackBerry Passport for AT&T but there have been plenty of rumblings about another rounded off Passport as well and that device has been referred to as the BlackBerry Oslo, essentially an AT&T BlackBerry Passport that has been rumored for launch in China and a small number of various other regions. A new image and claims of it being the Oslo have now appeared over at BlackBerry Central.
