Come and get it! I got your hot, piping pre-CTIA 2008 news for you right here. Today, Verizon Wireless announced that it will deliver the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8330 to customers starting in May (an exact ship date was not available). It's the first Curve to hit the CDMA carrier and is similar to the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8310 for AT&T in that it offers integrated GPS. The smartphone will work with Verizon's location-based service, VZ Navigator, and also one-ups the GSM version with EV-DO support. Other goodies include Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP support, a 2-megapixel camera, voice dialing, and a sleek design with a full QWERTY keyboard. The RIM BlackBerry Curve 8330 is priced to go at a slightly pricey $269.99 with a two-year contract and after rebates.
