Alltel Curve launching May 1
The BlackBerry Curve is set to launch from Alltel on the first of May. The phone is available for online pre-order now at, and will be available in retail stores at the beginning of next month. With Sprint pushing back its release, and Verizon yet to confirm a release date, Alltel may be the first U.S. carrier to launch the CDMA Curve. The Curve will be RIM's first consumer oriented device with a full QWERTY keyboard, and features include EVDO, GPS, 2-megapixel camera, microSDHC expansion and a 3.5mm headset jack. New and upgrade eligible Alltel customers can expect to pay $229.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate.

I forgot to mention pricing is going to be $279.99 after rebate. Then $100 off for data plan. If you are NE2 eligible you can get the device for as little as $79.99 to $129.99 depending on what NE2 plan you are on.

Cuz VZW is great at getting ugly phones. Have you seen their Touch? Who wants a white phone?!

Seriously... you have nothing to complain about. I WISH the VZW version of this phone came in black. In fact, all of these phones should come in multiple colors on all carriers...
