Sprint now offering BlackBerry Curve 8530, follows Henry Ford's coloring scheme
The BlackBerry Curve 8530 is now available at Sprint. The pin-dropping network is offering the device for just $49.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and a $200 instant discount. A new two year contract also needs to be signed. The 8530 comes with a 2.5 inch display with resolution of 320 X 240 pixels and supports 65,000 colors. BlackBerry OS 5.0 is on board as is Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, a microSD slot that will expand your memory by as much as 32GB and a 528MHz processor powering the show. Hopefully you like the color black because that is the only color that it comes in. At least it will match the color of your Model T.

It's going to be in purple as well. At least it was showing purple AND black when the device was first on Sprint's website. AND BGR has it too.http://www.boygeniusreport.com/2009/11/05/sprint-gets-blackberry-8530-love-too/ sorry about your Henry Ford joke.

i hope this device is a success. RIM's Tour series on both cdma carriers was a little half baked.

Yes they have a full HTML browser but it's not the greatest in my opinion.
