BlackBerry Curve 9300 meets and greets the FCC

BlackBerry Curve 9300 meets and greets the FCC
All of those BlackBerry Curve 2 8530 devices still found in the palms of cellphone users in the States are not that old, but somebody at RIM must think so. After all, the manufacturer has the Curve 9300 just waiting to be introduced. But first things first, the phone must head over to the FCC and meet the guys who, with one flick of their pencil, control the destiny of the device. From the filing, we can determine that the new handset will have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth capabilities, and the AWS 3G coverage that is often used by smaller pre-paid carriers like MetroPCS and Cricket. The CDMA radio inside and the Advanced Wireless Services band under the hood tells us that Sprint and Verizon won't be the only places to find this model. Notice the "Curve" name that will be on the back of the phone, near the top. Another thought on the device is that it is not the 9300 at all, but is an 8500 series device strictly for the regional carriers who have not yet offered such a model.

Android is def worth the extra couple dollars you might spend on it. Lets be honest, we both know that you and I have spent more money on less things. So do the world a favor and yourself a favor and just get an android device.
