AT&T has officially announced that the BlackBerry Curve 8900 will be available from them tomorrow. Except that it’s already available over on their website. Error or easter egg? You decide!
The phone is reportedly selling for $199, with a two-year contract. It really is sexy as hell, if you’re into Blackberrys. Even if you’re not, a full QWERTY keyboard, high-res screen, decent 3.2MP camera (not just lots of pixels, it’s got proper auto focus and stabilization), Wi-Fi, GPS, SD card slot and quad-band EDGE connectivity have to be worth something. It’s nice.
What we think?
If you’re a Blackberry fan, this phone has it all. Except for 3G support, that is, which is kind of a weird omission.
As for the day early release on the website, I’m inclined to think that was firmly on purpose. Little surprises like that can really raise a company’s profile.
