The BlackBerry Curve 8530 has already launched on Verizon as the WiFi-toting update to the already capable BlackBerry Curve 8520, but it has yet to land on Sprint’s network. Last we heard, the Sprint BlackBerry Curve 8530 was rumored to launch on December 18th, but new information has landed in our inbox indicating that the handset will go live on January 10th of next year (2010). The Curve 8530 will feature the same specs as the 8520, but with the addition of WiFi and BlackBerry 5.0 OS.
According to our source, the Curve 8530 is already in Sprint’s device launch calendar, which specs out launches four weeks in advance. If true, we’ll have to wait until next year to put hands on the updated Curve from Sprint.
We’ll probably have a better idea for the Sprint Curve 8530’s launch in the next couple weeks.
