MetroPCS launches the BlackBerry Curve 8530 with $60/month unlimited everything plan

MetroPCS have just launched the BlackBerry Curve 8530 for their customers.

The smartphone itself costs $230 after a mail-in rebate.

The sweet part of this offer, however, is the plan. For $60 per month, you get unlimited talk, text, and data. The plan also includes IMs, MMS, turn-by-turn GPS navigation, Metro back-up, Premium Directory Assistance and Metro Banking.

And the best thing of all? It doesn’t require a contract.

This is a very compelling offer for both BlackBerry addicts and people looking to buy a messaging-focused smartphone.

The Curve 8530 features:

  • dual-band CDMA with 3G
  • a 320×240 display
  • a 2 MP camera
  • a 528 MHz processor
  • 256 MB of ROM
  • microSD card slot
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth 2.1
  • GPS
  • 3.5 mm headphone jack
  • BlackBerry OS 5
  • 1150 mAh battery
  • Dimensions: 109 x 60 x 14 mm
  • Weight: 106 g

Overall a decent lower-midrange package. The upfront price may be a bit steep, but it enables you to enjoy the unlimited plan for only $60 per month, so perhaps it’s a worthy trade-off.

You can order it here or hit your local MetroPCS shop.
