Sprint has joined Verizon in announcing plans to carry the new CDMA version of the BlackBerry Curve.
Like the Verizon version of the device, Sprint’s BlackBerry Curve — also known as the BlackBerry 8330 — will feature internal GPS, EV-DO high-speed Internet, and also adds support for Sprint’s branded music store and streaming video services.
More About The Blackberry Curve
The Curve is marketed heavily to consumers and individual purchasers, a departure from RIM’s traditionally business-oriented sales. As such, the company emphasizes the multimedia capabilities of the device, as well as its 2 megapixel digital camera, an uncommon feature for a Blackberry.
The Curve also features a thumb keyboard, QVGA display, and Bluetooth 2.0.
Pricing And Availability
The BlackBerry Curve 8330 will be available from Sprint some time in April, at a price of $180 after two-year contract and $100 mail-in rebate, or $450 with no contract.
