Contrary to previous rumors, Sprint’s new BlackBerry Curve 9350 did not become available earlier this month. That said, the carrier has certainly not forgotten about the affordable smartphone running BlackBerry OS 7 and sporting that ‘classic’ BlackBerry form factor.
Thanks to a leaked Sprint document (shown below), we now know that the Curve 9350 is set to become available on October 2. That means that if you were waiting to purchase this device, in ten days your wait will be over.
Pricing has remained unchanged. Sprint will still ask $79.99 (after a $50 mail-in rebate) for the Curve 9350. That price is valid only if you sign a new two-year service agreement.
The Curve 9350 is one of the cheapest new BlackBerry smartphones, and as such it should become one of the best selling. So let’s hope that the image you see above isn’t a hoax and it will launch soon. Although it should be noted that the BlackBerry Curve 9350 can in no way have a “faster touchscreen”, as noted in that document. It’s impossible, because the Curve 9350 doesn’t have a touchscreen. So we’ll assume that the poor choice of words was referring to the trackpad instead.
Anyway, we’ll find out soon enough if this was real or not. So stay tuned.
