Sprint delays BlackBerry Curve 9350 until October 2nd
We had reported that Sprint was all set to launch the BlackBerry Curve 9350 on September 9th, but one of our tipsters, who wishes to remain anonymous, is passing on to us the news that the handset has been delayed. According to a memo that Sprint employees have received, the BlackBerry Curve 9350 will now be launched on October 2th. The source gave no reason for the delay.

The BlackBerry Curve 9350 is a low-priced model as Sprint plans on charging $80 with a 2-year contract and business customers are being asked for $50, also with a 2-year pact. Not a touchscreen model, the BlackBerry Curve 9350 offers a 2.44 inch screen with resolution of 480x360 with a 5MP shooter on back that captures video at VGA resolution. Under the hood is a single-core 800MHz processor with 512MB of RAM aboard as well.

Those who were planning on popping into their local Sprint store on Friday to pick up the BlackBerry Curve 9350 will have to wait a few weeks longer. Remember, patience is a virtue.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

The BlackBerry Curve 9350 is the replacement to the BlackBerry Curve 9330. The significant difference between the two, aside from a $30 price one, is the 9350 is powered by RIM 7 where as the 9330 runs RIM 6.

But it's really not pretty. Even for a cheap phone. The specs are better than the Curve 9300/30 but why did it have to be uglier... Look at those buttons, damn!

It's not delayed. Whoever told PA is was going to release on 9/9 was mistaken. The Curve has been scheduled for the Oct 2nd release for a couple months.

Not sure where you get your info but I'm a Sprint dealer and I get regular 'Handset Update' emails from Sprint that have stated for this for the last month: BLACKBERRY CURVE 4 - Sedona, SKU:SRIMR010, projected launch: 9-Sep-11. For the record, this morning's email said the same thing.
