Wi-Fi enabled BlackBerry Curve 8320 debuts on AT&T
If you want a Wi-Fi enabled BlackBerry from AT&T but don’t want to pay $299.99 for a subsidized Bold, the big ‘n’ blue North American carrier now has a cheaper smartphone for you: BlackBerry Curve 8320.
The new Curve was launched today and it’s available online, in sapphire blue, for as low as $149.99, after a $100 mail-in rebate and the signing of a 2-yr contract.
BlackBerry Curve 8320 is not too different from the Curve 8310, which is offered by AT&T for some time now. The main change is that the 8320 has Wi-Fi but no built-in GPS, while the 8310 features GPS and lacks Wi-Fi.
AT&T also says that BlackBerry Curve 8320 comes with an enhanced interface, an improved HTML browser and support for HTML e-mail.
After buying a Curve 8320, AT&T users with personal or corporate BlackBerry service plans will be able to access, for free, any of AT&T’s Wi-Fi hotspots across the US. Access to Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide is also available, but local taxes may apply.
