MetroPCS announces its first BlackBerry: the Curve 8330
BlackBerry Curve 8330 may be old news for Sprint’s customers, but it surely isn’t for those who use MetroPCS, as the regional US carrier has never had a RIM smartphone in its handset line-up.
The Curve 8330, which definitely looks stellar when compared to MetroPCS’ other devices, will be available to its subscribers starting this week. For the beginning, you’ll only be able to get it from Best Buy. By the end of March, the smartphone should also be on sale via other MetroPCS dealers and retail stores.
Pricing details are currently missing, but MetroPCS said it would offer the 8330 together with two new unlimited rate plans. The first one costs $50 and it’s a personal rate plan that offers “unlimited talk, text, web browsing, MMS and BlackBerry email access through BlackBerry Internet Service.” The second plan costs $60 and includes all the above-mentioned stuff, plus access to BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
