Sprint has joined Verizon in announcing the BlackBerry Curve 9330 in graphite grey and royal purple. The new phone will be available online and over the phone starting September 26th which is the day before DevCon. The phone will be going for $49.99 after a $100 mail in rebate which is higher than the $29.99 price Verizon is offering it at. Stores will get the 9330 starting October 10th.
The BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 is a nice device with one annoying flaw. It has a subpar 320×240 screen resolution that really drags down the 512mb memory and fast processor. On the other hand it will be an affordable BlackBerry that will be upgraded in the future to BlackBerry 6.
NOTE: This is the first press release to specifically mention that the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 will get BlackBerry 6 in 2011
Should be interesting to see how this device does…
