Sprint announces the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330, 4G App Challenge

Just like Verizon yesterday, today Sprint has announced the upcoming availability of the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330.

Sprint will sell the 3G Curve starting September 26 online, through Telesales, and Business Sales. Weird enough, Sprint’s version of the new Curve is more expensive than Verizon’s (the devices are identical specs-wise): it’ll cost you $49.99 with a 2-yr contract agreement and after a $100 mail-in rebate.

The BlackBerry Curve 9330 will run BB OS 5 at launch, but users will be able to update it to OS 6 sometime later.

Apart from announcing the Curve 3G today, Sprint has also unveiled the “Sprint 4G App Challenge” – in partnership with WIRED, Ars Technica and Reddit.

Naturally, the Challenge asks developers to give their best in making an application for Sprint’s 4G handsets (the HTC EVO 4G and the Samsung Epic 4G). There are five app categories: entertainment, gaming, social networking, multimedia and productivity.

Five winners (for each category) will go home with $50,000 and an HTC EVO 4G Android smartphone (1-yr of Sprint service included).

You can check out more details and register for the Sprint 4G App Challenge here at Sprint.
