RIM, Nextel to launch the BlackBerry Curve 8350i in Latin America

BlackBerry Curve 8350i, the smartphone that should be launched by Sprint in the US any time now, will also be released in Latin America.

Research in Motion and NII Holdings today announced that the new handset will hit, in early 2009, the following countries: Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Peru.

The Curve 8350i will be launched via Nextel, as the first smartphone in Latin America to come with Push-to-Talk (PTT) technology, International Direct Connect (IDC) and Wi-Fi on board.

Since it’s a PTT device, BlackBerry Curve 8350i will allow users to quickly connect with other NII subscribers from their home country, as well as with more than 10 million iDEN users across North and South America.  

Other features of Curve 8350i include:

  • Full QWERTY keyboard
  • GPS
  • BlackBerry Maps
  • BlackBerry Enterprise Solution
  • Push e-mail
  • DataViz Documents to Go
  • 2 MP camera
  • 128MB of internal memory 
  • MicroSD/SDHC card support, up to 16GB

The price of BlackBerry Curve 8350i for Latin America was not announced but it will probably depend upon the country you buy it from.
