T-Mobile USA has announced availability and pricing for the BlackBerry Curve 3G, officially launched earlier this month. Would-be buyers will be able to pick up the Curve 3G from September 8th, priced at $79.99 with a new, two-year agreement (and a mandatory data package, naturally).
The Curve 3G has – unsurprisingly – 3G, together with WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, a 2.4-inch 320 x 240 display, QWERTY keyboard, optical trackpad and fixed-focus 2-megapixel camera. There’s also GPS with TeleNav, a 2GB microSD card slot (though the Curve 3G will handle up to 32GB cards) and BlackBerry 5.
RIM has confirmed that the smartphone is “BlackBerry 6 ready,” but there’s no telling when exactly T-Mobile USA will roll out their upgrade. We’ve already seen that Bell Mobility don’t plan to release BlackBerry 6 for their handsets until sometime in 2011, though right now it’s unclear if that’s the carrier’s own decision or based on delays in testing the updated OS.
