While the recent BlackBerry Torch gets all the press, Cricket quietly pipes up and says that it, too, now has a BlackBerry in its lineup--its first ever, in fact.

Indeed, the regional carrier has never even had a smartphone in its family before the BlackBerry Curve 8530. Features include GPS, Wi-Fi, stereo Bluetooth, EV-DO, a 2-megapixel camera, and of course access to BlackBerry's App World market. As we mentioned earlier this week, the BlackBerry Curve 8530 is available for $299.99, and you can get it with Cricket's affordable BlackBerry unlimited plan, which is $60 a month.
