RIM and Verizon Announce the BlackBerry Curve 3G

Today, RIM and Verizon announced the BlackBerry Curve 3G. The Curve 3G 9300 features, of course 3G, but it’s also BlackBerry 6 compatible. With the 8520 floating around for a little cheaper, users will have to make up their mind about whether the price increase is worth the BlackBerry 6 potential and 3G. If you’re in the market for a Curve, you might as well spend the little bit extra up front to get these features.

The BlackBerry Curve 3G will be available in business sales channels on September 16 and it will be available online and in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores in the coming weeks for $29.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement on a voice plan with an Email and Web feature or an Email and Web for BlackBerry plan.

3G and BlackBerry 6 is worth $29.99 right?

    Can you guys please stop grouping GSM & CDMA Curves into the same category? It confuses new people that aren’t familiar with the product. The 8530(CDMA) already had 3G so instead of referencing the 8520(GSM/no 3G) let consumers know that while the 8530 already has 3G they are getting more memory(512MB instead of 256MB of RAM), wireless-N, & a better processor(624MHZ instead of 528MHZ) with the 9330(CDMA). The 9300(GSM) only has 256MB of RAM, clearly not the same.
