New BlackBerry Curve 3G (9300) Announced [BlackBerry Weekly]


Research in Motion today announced a new BlackBerry model hot on the release of their new flagship model, the Torch.

This new model fits into the immensely popular Curve range, and finally brings 3G support to the series in what may be a full world-wide roll-out.

The model is called the Curve 3G (model no. 9300), and whilst it ships with the older BlackVerry OS 5, it is OS 6 ready, unlike its older siblings the Curve 8520 and 8530.

The 9300 also has GPS built-in, unlike its predecessor, and coupled with its support for an update to the latest BlackBerry OS 6, is in my opinion an all-round great phone. Unfortunately, however, the camera is stil 2-megapixel.

Byte Lounge has already contacted Vodacom in South Africa to find out when this phone will arrive, and we will post the latest as soon as we get a reply from them.

In the meantime, though, what do you think of this phone? Let us know in the comments below.
