Posted by at 1:05 pm on September 14, 2010

Verizon  today announced that it will be  carrying the  BlackBerry Curve 3G. The 9330 variant has the required switch to CDMA calling and EVDO-based 3G data, and is only lightly customized for Verizon’s network beyond the switch from GSM. It ships with the option of using VZ Navigator with GPS and comes in both the phone’s usual chrome-effect silver or a newer fuchsia trim.

It sill has the  familiar 320×240 display, a two-megapixel camera and 802.11g Wi-Fi. BlackBerry App World is already preinstalled on the phone, and the phone is the first OS 5 device to qualify for an update to BlackBerry 6, once Verizon approves it for an update.

Verizon will sell the phone for $30 on a two-year contract, after a  $100 mail-in rebate. Business users get it first, on September 16, with a wider launch due sometime in “coming weeks.”
