BlackBerry Curve 8350i finally launched by Sprint

BlackBerry Curve 8350i, the first push-to-talk RIM smartphone that features both Wi-Fi and Nextel Group Connect, is now finally available for purchase via Sprint.

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
  • Built-in GPS
  • DataViz Documents to Go
  • Push email
  • 2MP camera with flash
  • 1GB MicroSD card in the package
  • 4.4 x 2.4 x 0.7 inches
  • 4.7 ounces
  • 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.
