If you live in Alaska, you will be happy to know that Alaska’s fastest mobile network, Alaska Communication System, announced that they have begun carrying 3 BlackBerry Devices as of September 15. You will now be able to pick up an 8830 World Edition, a Curve 8330 and of course a Pearl 8130. As of the time this article was written, it looks like the only device currently available is the Curve 8330, the 8830 World Edition is available for pre-order, and the Pearl 8130 is “coming soon”
ACS provides Alaska’s only 3G network (CDMA EVDO), so if your an Alaskan with a demand for mobile speed, head on over to ACSAlaska.com or your nearest retailer and pick one up!
This leads me to wonder if, Alaska Governor & Vice Presidential Nominee, Sarah Palin, will be upgrading her wireless network…
