Rogers BlackBerry Curve 8900

With word of the BlackBerry Curve 8900 quietly shipping to corporate customers over the weekend, you knew it was only a matter of time before the official announcement dropped. Today, RIM and Rogers jointly announced the BlackBerry Curve 8900, which mixes the power and sexy of the BlackBerry Bold with the standard Curve form factor, minus the 3G.

“Rogers is thrilled to offer Canadians the exclusive BlackBerry Curve 8900, the smallest full-QWERTY BlackBerry smartphone to enter the market,” said John Boynton, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Rogers Wireless. “With its ingenious design and stunning display, leading-edge mobile messaging system and compatibility with Rogers TalkSpot, the BlackBerry Curve 8900 strikes the right balance between serious business tool and social lifeline.”

Rogers is selling the BlackBerry Curve 8900 for $179.99 on a 3-year contract and $45 dollar plan. Check out the BlackBerry Curve 8900 specs after the jump or head to the links below for more info.
