The recently announced BlackBerry Curve 9380 is headed to the UK. So far we’ve heard that O2 was going to carry it, and now it’s already up for pre-order at some retailers in SIM-free and unlocked form.
Play.com offers the Curve 9380 for £319.99. Unfortunately the shop doesn’t list an exact shipping date, instead saying that the smartphone is “usually dispatched within 4-5 days”.
Now if you don’t mind shelling out a bit more cash, MobileFun also lists the new BlackBerry Curve 9380. The price being asked here is £329.95, but it comes with an actual release date: November 28. Which, oddly enough, isn’t in “4-5 days”, but six. Still, close enough.
So it looks like RIM’s cheaper alternative to the Torch 9860 is bound to hit the streets in the UK in just a few days. If you’ve been craving an affordable touchscreen-only BlackBerry, start saving up.
The BlackBerry Curve 9380 has a 3.2-inch 360×480 touchscreen, a 5 MP camera, an 800 MHz processor, Wi-Fi, HSDPA, Bluetooth, and microSD card support.
