Rogers BlackBerry Curve 8320 to come in September, Telus gets red 8330


Some new BlackBerry Curve release are coming to Canadian carriers Rogers and Telus. Kevin at CrackBerry is telling us that the Wi-Fi enabled, Sapphire Blue BlackBerry 8320 should make an appearance on Rogers in September, a full month ahead of the AT&T BlackBerry Curve 8320, priced at $150 on a three-year contract. You can also check out the new Rogers BlackBerry rate card after the jump.

In addition, Telus has just released the CDMA BlackBerry 8330 (with GPS, but no Wi-FI) in a lovely red color, to go along with their gray and pink variants. The BlackBerry 8330 is also being sold at $150 on a three-year contract. You can see more plan and pricing information on Telus’ BlackBerry 8330 product page.

AT&T product sheet says November ETA for BlackBerry Bold


Oh no! We’ve been having our fun here at BlackBerry Cool pointing out AT&T’s BlackBerry Bold launch problems while playing with our Rogers Bold, but you’re heart has to go out to AT&T subscribers. The Boy Genius has published an AT&T product sheet dated September 17th that puts the ETA for the BlackBerry Bold release sometime in November. Despite this, BG remains confident in his October 2nd launch date, but I have to wonder why he’s as hopeful as Jim Balsillie about the earlier launch time.

There is some positive BlackBerry news for AT&T subscribers, however. The Sapphire Blue BlackBerry 8320 is set to arrive October 21st, with an Oyster Pink BlackBerry Pearl coming October 2nd. A Burnt Orange BlackBerry Curve model has been pushed to 2009, sadly.

Question of the day, folks: are you now more interested in the BlackBerry Storm, which has a similar launch timeline, or are you still Bold people? Post a comment and let us know.

AT&T BlackBerry 8320

We’re still crossing our fingers for a September 12th. BlackBerry Bold launch on AT&T, but if you aren’t holding your breath for it, the Wi-Fi BlackBerry Curve (8320) is aiming for a late September launch, which will finally complete AT&T’s Wi-Fi BlackBerry lineup. Included will be OS 4.5 (also due to hit BlackBerry 8120, BlackBerry 8820, BlackBerry 8310, and BlackBerry 8300), along with all of the associated goodies like e-mail search, free/busy lookup, Documents to Go… Of course, Wi-Fi in and of itself will offer access to AT&T’s some 17,000 hotspots across the U.S., which ain’t nothing to sneeze at, and it’ll be supporting AT&T’s Push-to-Talk service. While no pricing was mentioned, you can expect this one in the $100-range (like the 8310) and coming in a dashing new sapphire blue paint job.
