Both devices are available for purchase directly from the AT&T store. The Pearl 9100 will cost you $149 on a two-year contract while the Curve 9300 will only cost you $99 on a two-year contract.
The BlackBerry 9300 Curve 3G is finally official today. If you told T-Mobile to bring it, consider it brought. Though we still have no word on what it will cost. It’s basically an entry-level smartphone, so you can expect a reasonable price.
The 9300 Curve 3G will be able to support AT&T’s 3G bands, but there is still no word from AT&T on whether they will release the device or not. The BlackBerry 9300 Curve 3G is another BlackBerry device that runs on the recently introduced BlackBerry OS 6.0.
This is interesting news. Verizon just announced that they will be offering slotRadio+ microSD memory cards (which already come preloaded with music) for most BlackBerrys. We’ve seen the cards before. They are not new. They were introduced by SanDisk last year and can hold 1,000 songs from various artists on the Billboard charts.
First you’ll need to download and install an application on your BlackBery that will let you connect to Verizon’s V CAST Music service, for it to work. Each of the cards will retail for $50 if you like the skip button enough to get one.
Those who like to show off family pictures will be happy to know that Jobo’s latest Curve 7 and Curve 8 digital picture frames both have full-screen and thumbnail modes and can display the images as a slideshow with a limited set of transitions.
The Jobo Curve 7 features a 7-inch color TFT LCD display with a resolution of 480×234 pixels and Zoom mode. While the Jobo Curve 8 features an 8-inch color TFT LCD display with a higher resolution of 800×600 pixels and 4:3 aspect ratio.
Last we heard, the Curve 8900 was scheduled for a vague “early summer” release. Well, AT&T has just announced that the Curve 8900 will be available both online and in stores starting this Friday. That’s a whole lot less vague and just two days away.
If you are adding a line or are eligible for a fully discounted upgrade, you’ll need about $200 not including tax. To recap, some features include WiFi, GPS and a 480 x 360 resolution display and the joy of owning a BB.
It had to happen. If a device is as popular as the BlackBerry Curve 8900, it will get the Colorware treatment sooner or later. Usually sooner. Just like the iPhone 3G, and your DS. So, if you want to beat your precious gadget upside the face with an ugly stick, the folks at Colorware will gladly help.
It doesn’t have to be ugly of course, you can put together something striking I’m sure. Just be certain it’s what you want before you commit. A solid color will run you $129, but if you want a different top, bottom, frame or sides, it will be higher. You could just love your device for who it is, which is the cheapest option and it will love you back. Maybe.
World of Warcraft has a huge fanbase. The kinds of fans that are actually into tech as well. So it makes sense to have a World of Warcraft Today theme for the BlackBerry Curve. WoW fans can now get in-game graphics and icons on their communications devices, and probably helpful reminders about any guild raids they may have planned.
Just when you thought you could get a gamer out of the WoW universe for a few minutes, something like this comes along and pulls them back in. Sure, it’s not like you get to play on your iPhone, but the theme certainly gives BlackBerry that in game feel. Horde and Alliance themes can’t be far behind.
