BlackBerry 8350 for iDEN?
The next BlackBerry for Sprint's iDEN push-to-talk network will be a Curve phone, called the 8350, a report claims. Although Sprint announced in February that it would receive a new iDEN BlackBerry, it has otherwise kept quiet on the issue, leaving most information to media leaks and speculation. The new device is expected to help revive Sprint's struggling iDEN network, whose most recent BlackBerry is the outdated 7100i.
Few details of the phone have reached the public, but it is believed to support 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, and run at least v4.6.1 of the BlackBerry OS. No prices have been mentioned, but a release is anticipated in late 2008 or early 2009.
