For those of you who have been making regular visits or calls to your local Cingular/AT&T store about a certain BlackBerry Curve, you can stop reciting "Is it here yet? Is it here yet?" Today, the carrier announced that the Curve will be available in stores and online, starting tomorrow, for a reasonable $199.99 with a two-year contract and after mail-in rebates.

Some highlights of the Curve include a 2-megapixel camera, a built-in spell checker, noise-cancellation technology, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and Bluetooth 2.0. The device also supports a number of AT&T's add-on services, including push-to-talk, AT&T Music, and TeleNav maps. It's lacking Wi-Fi and 3G support, but this sexy little thing of a smart phone offers a well-rounded set of features that should attract its fair share of fans. Check out our full review and video for all the details.
