It looks like Canada is getting the BlackBerry Curve 8900 before the US, thanks to Rogers Wireless. The largest Canadian carrier is said to already have units of the new Curve 8900 in stock, ready for the official release.
Of course, there’s no word yet on when the official release will happen. However, we do know the price of BlackBerry Curve 8900.
According to BGR, Rogers will be selling the smartphone for: $179.99 with a 3-yr contract agreement; $499.99 with a 2-yr contract; and $549 on a month-to-month agreement.
Rogers’ BlackBerry Curve 8900 is UMA-enabled, this compensating for the lack of 3G and making it perfect for all those who want to use the carrier’s Talkspot service.
Unlicensed Mobile Access aside, the 8900 also offers a 3.2MP autofocus camera, a full QWERTY keypoard, GPS and so on.
RIM’s brand new Curve is not yet featured on Rogers’ website, but if you’re near one of the carrier’s retail stores, the smartphone might be waiting for you there.
