We wouldn't have guessed it a few months back, but it's starting to look like the Curve 8900
might actually be the device in RIM's portfolio with the most momentum going into '09, not the Storm
or the Bold
. Wild, huh? The latest evidence of that comes from RIM's own site, where they've revealed that both Optus and Vodafone will apparently be picking up the svelte QWERTY beaut at some point, though no mention is made of when or for how much dough. Theoretically, we'd expect it to be less than the Bold -- so for anyone who really doesn't need 3G, consider this your belated holiday gift. Hopefully not too belated.
