Research In Motion Ltd. announced the new BlackBerry 8820 today, the first Wi-Fi enabled BlackBerry smartphone. This is smart move and with a major wirelss carrier Cingular AT&T on board, it will have more impact than T-mobile’s Dash dual-mode phone.
The 8820 features a full QWERTY keyboard, a large 320 x 240 display and a trackball navigation system. It will be available later this summer. Pricing was not announced. But you can expect AT&T to these type of mass-market BlackBerry devices for as low as US$50, plus a monthly voice and data service plan.
The 8820 includes a built-in GPS support, a media player and an expandable memory slot for micromemory cards up to 32GB. The built-in GPS support in BlackBerry was a major missing piece for a consumer smartphone. Now that was finally built in.
The new smart phone switches “seamlessly” between EDGE, GPRS and GSM networks and 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi, according to RIM. It will of course have their killer app – mobile email, which is what BlackBerry smartphone does the best.
It will have Bluetooth 2.0 support just like all the others in its BlackBerry 8000 series.

Research In Motion released more details about their upcoming BlackBerry smartphone device, called BlackBerry Curve, also known as BlackBerry 8300.
The BlackBerry Curve phone is so far the thinest, lightest BlackBerry RIM has to offer. It is squarely aimed at the smart phone consumer market.
The BlackBerry 8300 has a 2mega pixel camera and has a newly redesigned media manager that plays mobile audio video, including mp3 on the phone.
Where to Buy BlackBerry Curve
Research In Motion has partnered with ATT wireless to bring out the device in the US. The BlackBerry Curve pricing and availability has not been finalized yet. But it could go as low as $100 or free after wireless carrier subsidy.
The BlackBerry Curve will be available worldwide on GSM carriers around July.
