The BlackBerry Curve has always been our favorite 'berry because of its solid keyboard and lack of pretension to any functionality beyond great messaging, but it looks like things are about to change fast: you're looking at a leaked image of what CrackBerry says is the Curve Touch, codenamed "Malib...

Despite the more recent releases of the Curve 8500 series and the Curve 3G, RIM has never really offered up a true successor to the venerable Curve 8900 -- a device some would argue remains the prettiest that Waterloo has ever manufactured. Indeed, with the QVGA display and meager cam on the 3G, th...

Yes, for one of the lowest-end BlackBerrys money can buy, $199.99 seems pricey, but there's something important to keep in mind here: Boost is a contract-free brand, and the Curve 8530 is no exception.

The way AT&T announced the Curve 3G a few weeks back, they made it sound like prospective buyers could be in for a wait following the October 17 release of the Pearl 3G, but not so much -- it's already available. You'll pay $99.99 on contract after rebates and discounts for the privilege of put...

We would've never figured on Verizon carrying over the "Curve 3G" name from this phone's GSM counterpart, considering all of its older Curve models have already had EV-DO -- but branding consistency trumps logic in this case, we suppose. Given what we know about the GSM model, you can probably gues...

Last we'd heard it'd be hitting shelves "in the coming weeks," and... well, "the coming weeks" have gradually become "now." You follow? Good, because the BlackBerry Curve 3G is hitting next Sunday in your choice of "smokey violet" and "graphite grey" for $79.99 on a new two-year contract -- which a...

When RIM crafts a CDMA BlackBerry, you can bet -- well, usually bet -- that it's destined for both Sprint and Verizon, since there aren't many other carrier partners anywhere in the world where Waterloo can recoup the R&D costs. We've already heard plenty of rumors that Verizon's signed up to g...
