The Rogers BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 has arrived in Rogers retail outlets and the box has the same modern look as the BlackBerry Torch. RIM has done a great job of updating their device packaging so it isn’t stuffed with manuals, CDs and giant chargers that take up space. The new BlackBerry packaging is about half the size and doesn’t come with a case like they used to. It’s a little lame to not get a case but it makes a lot of sense not to include it anymore. By not giving the user a free case, RIM has really opened up the third party case market.
The BlackBerry Curve 3G from Rogers comes with OS 188.8.131.522 with no App World preload. We have been hearing about how RIM scored an App World preload deal for some time but perhaps it will only come with App World 2.0. A couple more pics after the jump.
