BlackBerry Curve 3G Coming to T-Mobile, Will Support BlackBerry 6

While AT&T subscribers have the Torch all to themselves, T-Mobile customers will soon have a new BlackBerry to call their own. Today the carrier announced the upcoming retail availability of the BlackBerry 3G. The device will come with OS 5 installed but will be upgradeable to OS 6. Other notable features include Wi-Fi, GPS, visual voicemail, dedicated media keys, and pre-installed social networking apps. Available in graphite grey and smoky violet, the Curve 3G sports a full QWERTY keyboard and optical trackpad. The 2-MP camera is a bit on the low side for a smart phone these days, but you get up to 32GB of expandable memory.
