Today MetroPCS announced the availability of the BlackBerry Curve 8330. It goes on sale in select, non-AWS markets this week at Best Buy and should be available through all MetroPCS sales channels in non-AWS markets by the end of March. MetroPCS is also offering new plans for BlackBerries. For $50 per month, users will get unlimited text, web browsing, MMS and BlackBerry email via the BlackBerry Internet Server. Business customers using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server for email will need to pay an additional $10 per month. MetroPCS didn't say how much the Curve 8330 will cost.
They finally get a phone worth buying but the price is way too high, on the bright side at least web is included, why can't they do something to lower the price like if you want the 8330 at a discounted price then you pay for a couple months in advance or purchase any metro pcs/blackberry accessories? Also will the Metro Pcs version of the Curve come with Metro's own software or RIM's proprietary o/s?
It's $449 according to Metro's web site. I've been waiting to see if they allow BB's from other carriers to be converted using their MetroFlash program. For $40 I'd take my Verizon Pearl to them in a second!
