BlackBerry Curve 8530 announced for Sprint

After making its appearance at Verizon earlier today, Sprint also announced that the BlackBerry Curve 8530 smartphone is coming soon to its lineup as well. Potential customers can register now to receive updates on the handset. Preloaded apps are the primary difference for Sprint's Curve 8530 and include the Sprint Music Store, Sprint TV and Pandora radio.

The 8530 is RIM's entry-level media smartphone with dedicated music controls and quicker access to Facebook, MySpace and Flickr. Otherwise, the device has 3G EVDO network support, Wi-Fi, GPS and the by now de facto trackpad in place of a trackball. It cuts costs with a 320x240 display and a 2-megapixel camera.

Sprint will offer the BlackBerry Curve 8530 in black, purple and red. Pricing and a release date for the Sprint edition haven't yet been announced.
