RIM and Verizon have just announced the new BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330.
The BlackBerry Curve 3G ships with BlackBerry 5 but is BlackBerry 6-ready. It features built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, a 2-megapixel camera, a microSD slot expandable to 32GB and support for BlackBerry App World.
The Curve 3G might not have as many bells and whistles as some other smartphones on the market, but it is affordable. The phone will be available for $29.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and a new, two-year customer agreement.
Thirty dollars for a new BlackBerry isn’t a bad deal, especially if you are addicted to BlackBerry Messenger or the BlackBerry’s QWERTY keyboard.
The Curve 3G will be available via Verizon business channels on September 16 and via Verizon retail stores and the web in the coming weeks. When released in India I’m sure that this phone will be as popular as it’s cousin the 8530.
A cheaper option for people who want 3G and a BlackBerry.
