I just got confirmation from one of our Secret Agents that US Cellular will be joining in on the BlackBerry Curve 8530 fun. They are scheduled to release the 8530 on December 10th if all goes as planned. This joins the ranks of Verizon who is getting it on Nov 20th and Sprint who will have it “in the coming weeks.”
The 8530 is really turning out to be a pretty awesome low end device. With a trackpad, GPS, 3G EVDO, Wi-Fi, and more memory it really puts the GSM 8520 to shame. The only real downsides are the lack of a 3.2 MP camera with autofocus (it has a 2MP camera) and no camera flash.
So anybody planning on picking one of these up or will you be waiting for the Tour2 with a trackpad?
