Today, AT&T announced the immediate availability of the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8310, which adds the mighty powers of integrated GPS to the original BlackBerry Curve. Priced at $199.99 with a two-year contract and after rebates, the 8310 is available in red or titanium and allows you to turn your smartphone into a personal navigation device with a location-based service like TeleNav GPS Navigator. This will allow you to get voice-guided turn-by-turn directions, 3D maps, local business search, and more, right on your handset; just be aware that TeleNav is an add-on service that costs $9.99 per month for unlimited trips or $5.99 per month for 10 trips.
The 8310 continues to offer all the goodies of the original model, including a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP support, a microSD expansion slot, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and compatibility with AT&T Mobile Music. Unfortunately, AT&T's BlackBerry Curve 8310 won't have integrated Wi-Fi like T-Mobile'sCurve, but then, this device lacks GPS. So out of curiosity, if you could only choose one of these wireless radios, which would you choose: Wi-Fi or GPS?
