BlackBerry Curve 8530 and more to support OpenGL

Comments

The BlackBerry Curve 8530, which has been announced from Sprint, will come with OpenGL support. This is going to be huge for the device as it will bring some really slick applications which compelling UIs and 3D graphics.

The news comes as we recently got clarification from RIM that CDMA devices with OS 5 and the latest Qualcomm chipsets, will all ship with OpenGL support.

So not only will you be able to get the 8530 in Black, Royal Purple and Red, but it looks like you will also be able to get some awesome games like Super Monkey Ball (not confirmed).

    I think its a safe bet the 9650 will support, but RIM isn’t going to confirm since the device isn’t announced yet.

    Some reason you tied this posst to Sprint rather than Sprint AND Verizon, since 8530 is announced for both?
