AT&T has been in need of a serious upgrade to the Blackberry Curve 83xx series for some time now, considering it’s been stocked on the company’s shelves for almost 2 years.
That wait is over, as AT&T has officially announced the Blackberry Curve 8900 will be available this Friday, May 22. Just in time for Memorial Day, the 8900 is a welcome addition to the lineup at a reasonable $199 after mail in rebate on 2 year contract.
Unwired View reviewed the 8900 on T-Mobile a couple months back, and the AT&T version is likely to be a spitting image with exception of the HotSpot@home service and Fav 5′s. But you still get the combo of WiFi and GPS as well as 3.2 MP camera. No 3G on the 8900; to get 3G, shell out another $100 and get a Bold.
The 83xx was a good series of phones, but 8900 is an improvement in almost every way. Certainly a welcome upgrade to AT&T’s lineup, available in just one day.
