LAS VEGAS--In addition to the Kyocera Zio, Cricket Wireless is set to bring a new BlackBerry to its lineup. The carrier confirmed at CTIA 2010 that it will offer the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8530, but pricing or a specific availability date was not released at this time.

The AWS (Advanced Wireless Service)-compatible device is largely similar to the CDMA versions of the Curve 8530 available from Verizon Wireless and Sprint. For more information about the device, check out our review of the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8530.
