New BlackBerry Curve to feature on O2

9 December 2008 — 7:00 PM

It has been announced that the latest Research in Motion (RIM) handset will be made available to O2 customers in the UK.

The network will launch RIM's BlackBerry Curve 8900 on January 5th - which could give many people plenty of time to obtain money for old mobile phones via recycling.

Potential buyers will be able to pre-register their interest in the new model from December 10th and pre-orders will be taken on the O2 website from December 22nd.

O2 states the new Curve will feature a number of aspects which have made the full RIM range popular, but will add a "new twist" to the BlackBerry brand.

Steve Alder, general manager for group and UK devices at Telefonica O2 UK, said the phone "is ideal for both business customers and consumers who want the functionality of a smartphone in a sleek, slim form that feels great in your hand".

The BlackBerry Curve 8900 will also feature Wi-Fi, a high-resolution display, integrated media player and a 3.2-megapixel camera with auto focus and digital zoom.
