BlackBerry Curve 8900 officially released in Canada, via Rogers
The new smartphone is offered by Rogers for as low as $179.99, but this price is only available with a 3-yr contract agreement and a data plan of at least $45 per month.
Measuring only 13.5 mm in thickness, Curve 8900 may not be as advanced as the BlackBerry Bold, but that doesn’t make it an un-cool device. It actually has some features that are better than the ones the Bold offers, like a 480 x 360 pixels display and a 3.2 MP camera with autofocus and flash.
And, of course, you also get a full QWERTY keyboard, GPS, Wi-Fi, full HTML browser, email and so on. The only important thing that’s missing is 3G, but all BlackBerry Curve owners out there are probably used to relying on GPRS and EDGE only.
Although it’s not yet featured on Rogers’ official website, the BlackBerry Curve 8900 should be available for purchase in the carrier’s stores across Canada.
