T-Mobile to offer BlackBerry Curve 8900 next month
Following the rumors about the new device, T-Mobile finally announced that the BlackBerry Curve 8900 will indeed be available in February. You’ll be able to get it at T-Mobile’s retail stores, a selection of authorized dealers or online at T-Mobile.com.

The 8900 is the latest generation of the Curve, which will be the thinnest and lightest BlackBerry yet. T-Mobile assures that the model will be equipped with all the new features from BlackBerry OS, version 4.6, which actually makes it a compact Bold. The hardware sounds promising too,

as it includes a 512 MHz processor, a 3.2-megapixel camera with a flash, a 3.5mm stereo headset jack and a hot-swappable microSD/SDHC card slot.

Although still being a perfect business smartphone, the new BlackBerry Curve 8900 will undoubtedly be a really nice and capable multimedia device and that’s why we can’t wait until we have the chance to check it out.

Here are the detailed specifications of the BlackBerry Curve 8900.

why not? why would AT&T get this phone when they have the bold with 3g. the curve 8900 has no 3g and a step down from the bold which makes it perfect for T-mobile that is a smaller network with very little 3g, so i don't get why you would say that. Verizon and Sprint cant use this phone because its a gsm phone (well for now) so T-mobile is the best bet. i like AT&T and Verizon but hate when people bring another network down.

no luck, my friend... as #3 explained, at&t already has bold... why would they want a phone model that competes among its own branded devices?

Well, how it's any different from AT&T selling the Pearl, Curve, and Bold? Shouldn't AT&T get the latest Curve model as well?

Well the pearl don't compete with the curve or the bold. The bold and the curve that AT&T currently offers are running on 2 different OS, the curve has 4.2 but if you know your way around you can get a beta version of 4.5 (will slow the phone down really bad) while the bold and curve 8900 has 4.6 right out of the box. The current curve cant compete with the bold in no way or form while the new 8900 could draw attention away from it (if you don't mind not having 3g and a slightly smaller screen)

Why, dude? There's no reason for any of the top four wireless carriers in the US to buy each other; they're all going strong enough to stay in business.
