BlackBerry Curve 8350i Pricing

BlackBerry 8350iWe told you on Friday that the iDEN BlackBerry Curve 8350i was going to be released at the dirt cheap price of $150 (on a 2 year contract after a $100 mail-in rebate), and now we have some visual confirmation for you, via a promotional flyer from a 3rd-party Sprint dealership. We can also now tell you to expect the push-to-talk BlackBerry on December 1st, just in time for Christmas.

You can see the full flyer after the jump. Thanks for the tip, helpful anonymous dude!

BlackBerry Curve 8350i

    Hey guys.

    I answer the phones when people call Sprint, and wanted to let you know what we really know…. nothing. That’s the reason you get different dates all the time, people are guessing. The only fact that we have been told for sure is that it will be released in time for Christmas. As soon as I receive a real date, I will post it for you

    I called Sprints help line and after about 8 transfers (I asked a technical question about my current phone) I talked to a guy name Rick. Rick told me he has been working for Sprint for about a year and knew a little bit about the 8350i phone. First off he said he got to hold the 8350i for about 5 seconds during a big corporate meeting. He said the meeting was quit transparent. It was organized to boost morale for the Nextel guys in the office and shop. In the meeting they (Sprint executives) claimed that Sprint would be rolling out a working model of the 8350i before the end of August. Since that meeting only his boss’s boss got a 8350i. Rick said he keeps it in a locked draw in his office and it has become kind of a office joke. Since Sprint can’t get any more 8350i the technical support guys have been training on a computer simulated model. The other day Rick got an inter office memo demanding that there will be no more jokes about the 8350i release date. The joke the memo said were “in poor taste”. Well there you go fokes, Sprint has lied to us again. Maybe there will be phones available by 12/15/08 but probably not. For all those who doubt me – I remember months before the instinct came out Sprint had posters, fliers, and plastic mock up models – DO YOU REMEMBER? I haven’t seen any fliers or mock ups of the 8350i, I wonder why? Nextel is like the chairs on the Titanic, there slowly going under.
