BBerry Curve 8900 ATT Leak

A hands-on from Gizmodo on Friday has revealed that the BlackBerry Curve 8900 will be available from AT&T in the near future. Showing the same default home screen as for the Bold, the device should now be a lower-cost alternative to the $300 flagship with 3G access dropped in favor of both a lower price and a smaller shape while the 480x320 screen, GPS and Wi-Fi still carry over.

The new Curve is said to be lighter and better-built than the previous Curve, the 8300, without sacrificing typing ability or features; the limitation to EDGE access outside of Wi-Fi as well as relatively stiff keys are considered some of the few drawbacks.

No indication is given as to when the 8900 will appear with AT&T, though a Rogers leak hints that one of RIM's frequent early adopters will have the new smartphone in early 2009. T-Mobile is also believed to be getting a version of its own.
