As expected, T-Mobile has officially announced that they too will be carrying the BlackBerry Curve 3G in the coming weeks. The announcement as posted on the T-Mobile press release website:
No details from T-Mobile on exact pricing of the device but, pretty sure you'll be able to pick this one up for less then $100 when signing a new 2 year contract. Which all in all, if you want a nice cost effective BlackBerry that will eventually run BlackBerry 6, the BlackBerry Curve 3G looks quite attractive.
