BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 Coming to Bell August 12?

We had heard last week that the ho-hum BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 would be wriggling its way to Bell, and now internal documents are showing an August 12 launch date.

From what we’ve gathered, the BlackBerry 9300 (code-named Kepler) will be a microscopic upgrade to the 8500 series, offering the same screen, same camera, same app memory, same operating system, and just as much 3G as the CDMA 8530, only now for GSM carriers. Why on Earth Bell (and presumably Telus) would carry a CDMA and a GSM version of what is essentially an identical phone is still a huge mystery.

Vodafone, T-Mobile and Verizon will probably be picking it up too, if for some reason you’re attracted to it. There’s no mention of pricing on Bell, but you can expect it to be pretty cheap.
