BBerry 8900 Up for Rogers

After a low-key launch over a week ago, Rogers today officially posted the BlackBerry Curve 8900 online. The third-generation Curve is designed to more closely resemble the BlackBerry Bold and gets the higher-end model's very high-resolution 480x360 display, GPS and Wi-Fi while dropping 3G and adding a sharper 3.2-megapixel camera. In Rogers trim, it supports the carrier's Talkspot service for Wi-Fi calling and comes preloaded with a portal to download certain third-party apps.

The official price remains locked at $180 on a three-year contract for a $45 or higher voice-plus-data plan. Shorter terms are also available and push the price of the Curve 8900 up to as much as $550 for contract-free, month to month service regardless of the data and voice mix.
