Verizon to Sell the BlackBerry Curve 3G For $29

After launching on T-Mobile, the BlackBerry Curve 3G is coming to Verizon too. Starting September 16, you can get it for just $29 after a $100 mail-in rebate, a far cry from the $199 most smart phones cost even with a two-year contract.

Like the T-Mobile version, it comes with BlackBerry OS 5.0 installed, but will be upgradeable to OS 6.0, once RIM makes it available to non-touchscreen phones. That’s good news, since the latest version of the OS is more visually pleasing, and packs a Webkit browser that displays pages as they appear on the desktop.

In addition to its classic Curve design, available in charcoal and fuschia red, the 3G has 802.11n Wi-Fi, GPS, and can support microSD/SDHC cards up to 32GB. Click the link for a full list of specs, and stay tuned for our full review.
