Verizon leak confirms BB Curve2 branding, more
Leaked images from Verizon confirm that the very recently slipped BlackBerry Curve 8530 will be known as the Curve2 at the wireless provider. The handset is a CDMA version of the Curve 8520 already offered by T-Mobile in the US and Rogers in Canada. The brochures have a decidedly holiday-oriented theme to them, which, together with a private sale slated for late in November, hint that the Curve2 will be out in time for the holiday season.
The leak also reveals tidbits on various other smartphones coming to Verizon. This includes an indication that the Motorola Droid is likely to oficially ship on November 5th or perhaps the 6th. At the same time, a leaked comparison chart lists the LG Chocolate Touch, which suggests this device is also due out soon at the provider.
Despite the leaks, no prices have been revealed for any of the handsets. [via BGR]
