BlackBerry Curve 8530 now on sale at Verizon for $99.99 with 2 year deal
With all of the Android love that Verizon has been showering over its legion of customers, the carrier needed to do something for those who aren't-as Jon Rubinstein would call them-techies. So for the non-techie, here is the BlackBerry Curve 8530. Yeah, it doesn't have Android under the hood, but it still is a smartphone with a 2.5 inch screen, 2MP camera, GPS, Wi-Fi and an optical trackball. It might be considered the Goldilocks smartphone-not too much, not too little...for the average guy it's just right. It also is the first full QWERTY enabled 'Berry to feature the BlackBerry 5.0 OS which should make it more intuitive than prior RIM models. The phone is available in two different colors, Black or Smoky Violet. Has the device caught anyone's eye yet?
