Earlier in May, AT&Tannounced plans to bring the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8900 to its shelves in early summer and looks like the carrier is making good on its promise.

The newest Curve will be available in stores and online on May 22 for $199.99 with a two-year contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate. Though the smartphone isn't scheduled to be in stores till Friday, it looks like you can actually purchase it from AT&T's Web site now.

AT&T's RIM BlackBerry Curve 8900 is largely like T-Mobile's version, which was released in February, but you get the addition of free Wi-Fi access at over 20,000 hot spots nationwide (fine print: provided you have a qualifying data plan) and support for AT&T Navigator (domestic and global) and Yellowpages.com.

Other highlights include integrated GPS, Wi-Fi, a 3.2-megapixel camera, and a 2.4-inch, 480x360-pixel resolution TFT display. There's no 3G support so if that's a must-have, you might want to check out the RIM BlackBerry Bold. We'll be getting in a review unit, so check back soon for a full review.
