British friends, rejoice! T-Mobile, sneaky as it is, has just launched a country-wide sneak attack – bombarding store locations across the island. Here in the US we’re still in the dark as far as when the 8900 might find its way to AT&T or T-Mobile, but every time we see it launched abroad we get a slight glimmer of hope. Maybe. As far as T-Mobile UK pricing goes, here’s how it breaks down with an 18-month contract term:

  • Combi 15: £15.00 ($22.77) / month – £166.37 ($252.57)
  • Combi 20: £20.00 ($30.36) / month – £127.22 ($193.14)
  • Combi 25: £25.00 ($37.95) / month – £97.87 ($148.58)
  • Combi 30: £30.00 ($45.54) / month – £58.72 ($89.15)
  • Combi 35: £31.50 ($47.82) / month – FREE
  • Combi 40: £36.00 ($54.65) / month – FREE

Not bad T-Mobile, not bad at all. Of course if you head on over to our BlackBerry Curve 8900 giveaway you can take home a free 8900 for £0.00 / month, but these deals are still pretty good. So, if your current handset is moving cellular data way too fast for you, head on over to your local T-Mobile shop and get your EDGE on. Woo!

Thanks, Everett!
