We knew the BlackBerry Curve 3G would be available from T-Mobile, but we didn't know when. T-Mobile has announced via its Facebook page that it will begin offering the BlackBerry Curve 3G--also known as the Curve 9300--on September 8 for a very affordable $80 with a new two-year contract. The Curve 3G is an entry-level smartphone, but it does have 3G support. It's similar to the other Curve 8500 handsets as it has a 2-megapixel camera, 624MHz processor, 256MB internal memory, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
Though it ships with BlackBerry OS 5, you will be able to update it to OS 6 in the next few months. It will be available in smoky violet and graphite gray.
