LG LX290, Inferno BlackBerry Curve 8330 launched by Sprint

If you’re a Sprint customer in need of a new and affordable phone, you should know that the third largest US carrier has just launched the LG LX290 – a pretty basic slider that costs only 29.99 with a 2-yr contract agreement (after a $50 mail-in rebate).

The LX290 comes with “four conveniently-located shortcut keys for quick access to texting, email, personal calendar and alarm.”

Its other features include: QVGA display with 262K colors, GPS (Sprint Navigation), Bluetooth, Sprint Mobile Email, 1.3MP camera, and a 950 mAh battery for up to 6 hours of talk time.

Sprint has also released a new color version of the BlackBerry Curve 8330: Inferno (which is actually some sort of orange).

The Inferno BlackBerry Curve 8330 costs $49.99 with a 2-yr contract agreement and after a $100 mail-in rebate. Like the LG LX290, the new Curve can be bought both online and from Sprint’s retail locations.

Of course, you can always buy the brand new BlackBerry Tour instead.
