Sprint Launches BlackBerry 8350i

Sprint has rolled out the BlackBerry 8350i at CTIA, making it the first Curve handset that supports Nextel's iDEN network while offering push-to-talk functionality with 20 users within a single second, making this the perfect device to have for workers as well as outdoor travelers. I like the fact that you get a BlackBerry's "push" mail albeit with instant voice as well in a single device. In addition, you also get GPS navigation and Wi-Fi connectivity, making this one feature-packed smartphone that ought not to be passed if you're considering functionality as the top priority. Other features include a 2 megapixel camera, a microSD memory card slot, Mobile Office software suite and a high capacity battery. The BlackBerry 8350i will be out later this year, with no word on pricing yet.
