Sprint to join Verizon in offering the BlackBerry Curve 8530
On Thursday, we reported that Verizon was adding the BlackBerry Curve 8530 to the Big Red lineup. The phone, which the carrier originally called the Curve2, will cost $99.99 after a $100 mail-in-rebate and a 2 year contract. Well, before Thursday was out, a screen shot of the Sprint web site showed that it too would be offering the same device, with basically the same features, at the same price. Where Verizon says it will offer the 8530 in either Black or Smokey Violet, Sprint calls the same color choice Black or Royal Purple. We guess one man's Smokey Violet is another man's Royal Purple. Who knew? Verizon plans on launching the phone on November 20th but Sprint has no date set yet. As soon as we hear when the pin-dropping network will be dropping the 8530, we will pass it on to you.
