Verizon gives BlackBerry Curve 8330 ship date

BBerry Curve Verizon Ships

Verizon this morning quickly followed up on at least one claim made this week by confirming that its version of the BlackBerry Curve 8330 will be available first on May 9th through the company's online store. The smartphone is the first known version of the CDMA-based Curve to actually reach the market and separates itself from the titanium gray Alltel and Sprint editions both through its silver color as well as access to Verizon's custom VZ Navigator service to take advantage of the true GPS receiver.

RIM's phone continues to come with a 2-megapixel camera, a native full-size headphone jack, and an externally accessible microSD card slot. It will sell for $270 after including a two-year contract and rebate, and should also be available in Verizon's retail outlets on May 12th, shortly after the online launch. Contract-free pricing is still unavailable.

    Curve 8330 WAS available

    I have been waiting for the Blackberry Curve 8330 for months. When I logged on to Verizon Wireless' website this morning (Sunday, May 4) I was surprised to see it listed as for sale. I successfully ordered one and it will ship tomorrow. However, when I went back in tonight to show my wife what phone I bought it wasn't listed anymore. When I asked the online salesperson about it she said that it was a glitch but that it would ship anyway. Was it actually them testing their system? Or perhaps testing how much interest there was for it?
