BlackBerry Curve 9380 pre-orders start in the UK from £319.99 (SIM-free), shipping on November 28
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.
