Verizon is ready to sell the BlackBerry Curve 3G by keeping its name intact from the GSM version and attaching a $30 price tag to the unit. BlackBerry OS 5 might be running the show on this model for now, but an upgrade to BB OS 6 is supported, so don’t worry.
The price mentioned above applies to a contract with a $100 rebate, making this one of the cheapest smartphones around. The device will debut tomorrow (business channels) and you’ll see in stores in the following weeks. Here’s a list of specs for the handset:
Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth 2.1
Memory: 512MB Flash memory, microSD/SDHC card slot (up to 32GB cards)
Camera: 2MP, video recording support
Other features: GPS, geotagging, BlackBerry Media Sync, 35 key full QWERTY
