BBerry Curve 8900 UK Decem

The BlackBerry Curve 8900 was given its second major launch today with news that UK retailer Carphone Warehouse will be the next to pick up the RIM smartphone on December 20th. The choice of carrier and pricing haven't been named but will see Carphone as the exclusive third-party to carry the device, which resembles a smaller, 2G-only version of the BlackBerry Bold. The 480x320 display, GPS and Wi-Fi of the more expensive phone carry over with EDGE handling cellular Internet access.

US release information is still unavailable, though a growing number of reports put an American Curve 8900 on track for early 2009. The phone has already been spotted in AT&T trim and is likely to ship for both T-Mobile USA and Canada's Rogers. [via Shiny Shiny]
