Confirmed: BlackBerry Curve 3G coming to WIND Mobile

Over the last several days, rumors have been swirling that the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 would be making its way to WIND Mobile — especially after the device surfaced in RIM’s software database. Now, one of our ninjas from the North has sent us visual confirmation of the device in Wind Mobile’s inventory system. Judging by the two listings, it appears as though the handset will be offered in two colors; we’re assuming a gray or black and something a tad bit brighter. Pricing and availability have not yet been determined… anyone excited?

RIM officially announced BlackBerry Curve 3G, will support BlackBerry 6

We can’t really call this one a shocker, considering Rogers has had this handset up on their website for over a week (oh, and we have one), but RIM has officially announced the BlackBerry Curve 3G; formally known as the Curve 9300. The device has the classic Curve keyboard and form factor, and adds Wi-Fi and 3G to the stale familiar mix. The only real surprise in the press release is that the device, with 256 MB of RAM, will be “BlackBerry 6 ready.” Hit the jump for the full press release.
