With a 2-yr contract agreement and after a $100 mail-in rebate, the new handset can be bought for $149.99, while its regular price is of $479.99.
The Curve 8350i is basically a semi-rugged regular Curve 8330, so its design doesn’t bring anything new. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a nice handset, especially for users who need iDEN technology and smartphone features into one device.
Apart from Wi-Fi and push-to-talk, the specs and capabilities of BlackBerry Curve 8350i include:
Full QWERTY keyboard
DataViz Documents to Go
2MP camera with flash
1GB MicroSD card in the package
4.4 x 2.4 x 0.7 inches
1400 mAh battery for up to 4 hours of talk time
For the moment, BlackBerry Curve 8350i is available online (from Sprint’s website), via telesales and from Sprint business sales representatives. Starting January 11, 2009, the smartphone will also be sold through Sprint’s nationwide stores.
