Sprint’s BlackBerry 8350i in the woods

November 25th, 2008 at 5:29 AM

For those of you clinging to your iDEN network with dear life, you probably never thought this day would come. Well, it has, and we’ve got some live pictures of Sprint’s BlackBerry 8350i. One of our ninjas took some time out to photograph one for us and gave us a quick rundown. Here we go:

  • The 8350i has a 2.5mm headset jack, not a 3.5mm one, and it comes with a 2.5mm headset in the box.
  • Ships with the much beloved plastic holster, not the leather holster we’re accustomed to.
  • There’s a small size difference. It’s around 2mm taller and 1mm thicker than the other Curves (8300, 8310, 8320, 8330).
  • The PTT button can not be reassigned as a convenience key.
  • Instead of using the same battery as the Curve, the 8350i uses the BlackBerry 8800-series batteries.
  • The side keys are now black instead of being chromed
  • We were told the device isn’t a real beast in terms of the signal department. “It can’t get a stable signal to save its life once it boots up”

If that’s not enough for you, we’ve got all the snapshots in the gallery. Just make sure you’ve got your hardhats on, this thing screams CAUTION.
