AT&T set to get BlackBerry Curve 8900 in the summer

AT&T set to get BlackBerry Curve 8900 in the summer

Well, it looks like AT&T is the next carrier in line to get their hands on the BlackBerry Curve 8900. This latest offering will be a serious update from the 8300 model with improved specs and performance expected.

T-Mobile and Rogers already have the latest Curve, which features a 3.2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, GPS and a 480 x 360 display. It also has the newest BlackBerry operating system. The AT&T version of the BlackBerry 8900 will be a tad different, however.

Specifically, it won't feature Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) support for VoIP. However, it will have AT&T Navigator, XM Radio Mobile and Yellow Pages. We don't know how much the phone will cost on AT&T, but they are likely to keep it competitive with T-Mobile, which is currently priced at $149.99 with a two-year contract. The release date is also unknown, though expected to fall within the early summer months.

With the arguments over the BlackBerry Storm (review part 1 & 2)still raging, it's going to take a solid, dependable smartphone from RIM to settle some users down.  The BlackBerry Curve 8900 on T-Mobile might just be that device: a more traditional full-QWERTY form-factor than some of RIM's recent diversions, SlashGear has been spending some time with a pre-release 8900 and have some first-impressions in advance of our full review.

As looks go, the 8900 doesn't break any new ground for RIM.  Happily, the Curve family has always been blessed with handsome looks and sturdy build, and this latest device is no different.  Solid and tough, it's also surprisingly light and compact, nestling well in the hand.  The display is amazingly crisp, an area which RIM have been excelling in recently with both the Bold and the Storm, and the latest BlackBerry OS 4.61.114 does its usual job of making the majority of functions available from the first level of menus.  The keyboard, while not as aesthetically pleasing as that of the Bold, is responsive and highly usable, with just the right amount of key spacing (in fact some of us prefer it over the Bold) and clickiness.
