BBerry Curve 8900 T-Mobile

T-Mobile today became the first American carrier to pick up the BlackBerry Curve 8900. The full-QWERTY smartphone is the same as the stock version already reviewed here but switches to supporting T-Mobile's HotSpot Calling service for its UMA feature, which lets it make calls on its built-in Wi-Fi and bridge these seamlessly to the GSM phone network and back. It also adds hooks for the company's myFaves calling service and comes bundled with a 256MB microSD card.

The 8900 is RIM's thinnest phone with a full keyboard and carries the same 480x360 display and GPS as the Bold but drops the 3G for its less expensive GSM and EDGE and a sharper 3.2-megapixel camera. It arrives on T-Mobile in February; the company hasn't disclosed a specific date or prices but is believed to be launching on February 11th and will likely price the new Curve at $150 or less when on contract.
