BB 8320 at T-Mobile

T-Mobile today launched the BlackBerry 8320, RIM's enhanced Wi-Fi version of the Curve. The 802.11g wireless support allows it to both connect to the Internet without a potentially costly EDGE cellular connection, but also to tap into the company's HotSpot@Home service. The 8320's support of Unlicensed Mobile Access allows users to make calls for free at home or while at a public access point without consuming service plan minutes; users can even wander back on to the cellular network mid-call or vice versa once at home. T-Mobile's own version supports the company's myFaves support for calling any one of five friends for free regardless of their carrier.

The new BlackBerry comes in either pale gold or titanium silver trim levels but is otherwise very close to the original Curve, including a 2-megapixel camera, assisted GPS through BlackBerry Maps, and a dedicated media player with AAC/H.264 support and microSD storage for music and videos. Pricing for the phone is not immediately available but is expected to approach $200 with a two-year contract. HotSpot@Home adds $10 to an individual plan or $20 for a family.
