When RIM unveiled its latest BlackBerry models today, the Curve 9350, 9360 and 9370
, there was nothing mentioned in regards to their US availability, but we have just received a heads-up that sheds some light on the matter. As of September 9, the BlackBerry Curve 9350 will be available on Sprint
, and getting one will cost you the reasonable $80. However, if you happen to be a Sprint Business customer, the Curve 9350 will set you back a mere $50. Of course, in both cases you will be required to commit to a 2-year service agreement with the carrier.
What might make you want to get a Curve 9350 is that it delivers the BlackBerry experience without breaking the bank. It is powered by the BlackBerry 7 OS platform, offers a full-fledged Internet browser and comes with the iconic BlackBerry keyboard that makes writing those emails and BBM messages easy on your fingers. The 2.44-inch display on the device boasts a resolution of 480 by 360 pixels, and its 5-megapixel camera will come in handy if you ever need to snap a photo on the go. Of course, features like GPS and Wi-Fi connectivity are on board as well. The only drawback that the BlackBerry Curve 9350 has is that its screen is not touch-sensitive so you will have to navigate through its interface by using its optical trackpad instead.
