BlackBerry Curve 9310 is coming to Verizon on July 12

BlackBerry Curve 9310 is announced for Verizon
Remember the budget-friendly BlackBerry Curve 9320 that was announced a couple of months ago? Its CDMA variant known as the BlackBerry Curve 9310 is coming to Verizon in just a few short days. The handset is oriented towards first time smartphone users that want to stay connected to friends and family via social networks even when they are out and about.

Needless to say, BBM comes installed on the BlackBerry Curve 9310, and to make the experience even more pleasant, the smartphone is equipped with a dedicated BBM button on the side. Clients for Facebook and Twitter are on board as well, and that hardware QWERTY keyboard should come in handy when typing those long emails and wall posts. VZ Navigator comes pre-loaded bringing free, turn-by-turn navigation to Curve 9310 owners.

In terms of hardware, there isn't much that can make the BlackBerry Curve 9310 shine. It comes with a 2.44-inch, QVGA non-touchscreen display and a 3.2-megapixel camera. Wi-Fi and GPS are included as well, and the microSD card slot can accommodate cards of up to 32GB in size. 

As far as pricing goes, the BlackBerry Curve 9310 will set you back $50 after a $50 mail-in rebate, as long as you don't mind signing a 2-year contract with Verizon. Speaking of contracts, getting the handset requires a subscription to a Share Everything plan, which starts at $80 monthly and includes unlimited talk, texts, and 300MB of data.
