Verizon Wireless releases BlackBerry Curve 8530 smartphone


bb-curveNice to know that RIM does not put all of their eggs in a single basket, with their range of BlackBerrys being released across multiple carriers regardless of the country. Well, Verizon Wireless subscribers can now look forward to the BlackBerry Curve 8530 smartphone which will be able to take full advantage of Verizon Wireless’ 3G network alongside a bevy of other specifications, where it will come in a choice of black or smoky violet. We’ll take a closer look of the BlackBerry Curve 8530 smartphone right after the jump.

Among the key features of the Curve 8530 include the following :-

  • Easy-to-use, highly tactile, full QWERTY keyboard and touch-sensitive trackpad for reliable, responsive typing and navigation
  • 256 MB flash memory and 528 MHz next generation processor for enhanced performance
  • Supports voice-activated dialing and Bluetooth (version 2.1)
  • 3G-enabled (EV-DO)
  • Built-in Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g) connectivity
  • GPS with support for location-based applications, including geotagging support and Verizon Wireless’ VZ Navigator service
  • 2.0 megapixel digital camera with zoom and video recording capability
  • Multimedia playback of music, picturs and videos
  • Dedicated media keys
  • 3.5mm stereo headset jack
  • BlackBerry Media Sync support
  • Access to BlackBerry App World
  • Support for BlackBerry services
  • microSD/microSDHC memory card slot

You can’t get it immediately though, as Verizon Wireless will make it available to the masses only from November 20th onwards, where it is going for a relatively affordable $99.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate after agreeing to a new two-year customer agreement. This agreement is slightly different since it comprises of a voice plan with an e-mail and Web feature or an e-mail and Web for BlackBerry plan. Your BlackBerry Curve 8530 will also need to run on a data plan, where it will start from $29.99 when added to any Nationwide voice plan, going upwards if you want something more complex. If you’re interested, might I comfort you that you have at least a couple more weeks to save up your loose change before bringing this home?
