Back in December, Canadian mobile phone maker BlackBerry officially announced plans to bring to the market a new BlackBerry 10 handset, which will be manufactured in collaboration with Foxconn, and the device has already started to receive certification.

A certain BlackBerry STJ100-1 handset has made an appearance over at the Bluetooth SIG, where it was listed with the BlackBerry 10.2 OS loaded on top, and with Fixconn as its manufacturer.

This clearly shows that the device in question is none other than the aforementioned phone that the two companies are working on, and which features the codename of Jakarta.

On top of that, the same smartphone was spotted in Indonesia at Postel (and BlackBerry has already confirmed that Jakarta will be released in this market first).

The phone is expected to land on shelves as a full-touch BlackBerry, with no physical QWERTY keyboard included, as PhoneArena notes.
